Earth 2100: A Possible Future?
Devon J. Noll | Colbert, WA | 05/29/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
"EARTH 2100 is perhaps one of the scariest films I have ever seen. Not because it is filled with blood and guts or monsters, but because it could be the future we make for ourselves. At this time, oil is spewing into the Gulf of Mexico that is the environmental nightmare of all of us, and climate change deniers seem to be gaining ground in the media and within the public at large. This film which depicts what our world will become based on scientific models and reasonable assumptions based on current conditions is a one of shortages, violence, and catastrophe on a monumental, global scale. It does, however, offer us hope.
The crux of the film, and all the political decisions that follow, is based on a summit that is suppose to occur in 2015, but is perhaps more like the one in Copenhagen in 2010. If consensus is reached on common, global goals, we get one future, but if not, we get a horror far beyond our imaginings. The ultimate decisions that global decision makers make will affect us all, and this film shows just how badly those decision makers are.
It is the kind of film you need to see with friends and family and then discuss at great length, because how we influence those who make decisions can affect which future we get. It is a call to action on issues that will affect not only our own lives, but that of our children and grandchildren. It is mostly animated, but the scientific and political discussions that are inserted by real researchers and policy makers brings home just how realistic the projections of the animation are. It is well worth the time to watch, then discuss, and finally act to create a better world. We must prevent this kind of future, and strive for the kind the end of the film offers as an alternative."
I'm Concerned That We May Run Out Of Water Before Long
Bold Consumer | USA | 04/14/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This isn't a 'fun' movie to watch, but I decided to watch it again after having seen it on television, this time because on vacation I had seen an empty, dried-up pit where a lake used to be. Nothing grows without water. That got my attention.
Other weather changes here and there, huge ice storms and blizzards where they don't typically happen, make me believe we may be dealing with some sort of global 'change' if not global warming. I have no intentions of getting into the debate about the politics or other beliefs about global warming, but I think it would be very wise for us to consider what we can do to protect and maintain what we've been given. I'm not a scientist and know little or nothing about these things, but I do know that there are a few things I can do, and if we all do a few little things, we may have fewer disasters in the near future. There are some good ideas sprinkled throughout the drama.
This presentation gives me a great deal to think about. I would recommend that anyone watching it decide beforehand not to be overwhelmed with all of the disasters portrayed. The end of the DVD is probably more hopeful than I am that we can make changes that will make a difference. It certainly won't hurt to try."
The way it will be

"excellent narrative of what may come. In fact, the way things are in the world today the life of Lucy is probably how our children will grow up. Some of us have been saying this for far to long and it seems the corporations who buy the politicians will drive us over the cliff soon enough. Good luck young people, I'll be dead before the water stops."
