If people continue to play the zero-sum game, what will happen to the planet’s resources? 9. Instead of viewing our evolved tendencies as a sentence, what aspects of our psychology can we potentially change for the better? 10. According to the film, why are practices such as recycling and alternative power just attacking the symptoms? Answers to each question should be clearly numbered and all questions answered completely.  Answers may NOT be cut and pasted directly from the film.  Instead, you can supplement direct quotes into your own structured sentences using quotation marks and in-text citations using APA format, as follows:  Journeyman Pictures (2011) and/or (Journeyman Pictures, 2011).
