Ever wished that you could actually see carbon dioxide emissions as they occur? That people could actually see the huge quantities of the heat-trapping gas that are released from the industrial facilities and machines that cover our modern landscape?
That would certainly make it easier to explain anthropogenic climate change to people who have trouble visualizing just how much of the stuff is released everyday, wouldn’t it?
Well, the Oscar-winning director of The Cove, Louie Psihoyos, thought the same thing, and has got you covered. 🙂
Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, the director has assembled a renowned team of “artists and activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that expose issues of endangered species and mass extinction. Whether infiltrating notorious black markets with guerilla-style tactics or exploring the scientific causes affecting changes to the environment.”
And as part of this new project, the director has put together a rather compelling collection of actual footage of industrial carbon emissions through the use of high-tech equipment.
Racing Extinction — as the movie will be known — is currently set to see wide release sometime in 2015.
It certainly appears to be an interesting movie, at the least. And possibly one that will get a wide showing, owing to the success of the director’s previous work.
Without significant action (which looks unlikely), these extremely high levels of carbon dioxide emissions look set to continue into future with only slight dents being made through the limited adoption or rentable energy technologies and energy efficiency measures. The near-future looks set to be quite “interesting” — as the old Chinese proverb goes..
