New Climate Change Documentary Depicts Apocalypse and a Brave New World

11 views

The world is coming to an end!

Our planet is warming or cooling, depending on who you ask, at an alarming rate. "The Pause" is legitimate, and when the Earth presses play it’s really going to hit the fan. The Earth is cracking like…something that is utterly riddled with cracks. Although, the Earth could also be flooding like the second coming of Noah.

Think "rock people."

At least, this is what one new documentary will have you believe. Released on DVD and Blu-Ray Tuesday, This Changes Everything tells the story of how evil the civilized world is, and explains what everyone can do to combat it.

The trailer for the film paints a portrait of how “climate change” is not only 100% real, but it is also an opportunity for business to innovate and create a new world.

Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

“What if global warming isn’t only a crisis; what if it’s the best chance we’re ever going to get to build a better world?," the trailer asks, followed by a threat:

"Change, or BE changed."

Whatever you do, do not try and build up the economy we currently live in! Instead, try to create a new one that no one knows will work. After all, it seems plausible that the Earth is a microwave, and we are the Hot Pockets. Mmmm…microwaved portable food!

Whatever anyone’s beliefs on the subject might be, the average person will continue to be force-fed information that most of the time no one asked for and hardly anyone can afford. Because, if evolving into the future of "green technologies" will save everyone so much money, why does it cost so much?
