Titanic director James Cameron explores climate change in TV series
‘Years of Living Dangerously’ is Canadian director James Cameron’s newest effort, an ambitious eight-part Television documentary on climate change.
It includes a cast of the world’s best-known climate researchers with celebrities and well-known politicians to inform the stories of real folks from over the world.
Cameron enlisted the talents of Hollywood celebs like Harrison Ford, Jessica Alba, Arnold Schwarzenegger and climate change activist Matt Damon.
Cameron says just how their lives are being affected by climate change and the goal is to concentrate on real people: a technology display is isn’ted by “This. It’s not designed to become a large amount of maps and charts, actually I don’t believe we use maps and any charts, we’re telling the story in very human conditions in ways which makes it real.”
In the vanishing forests of Indonesia towards the growing volume of the debilitating Texas drought as well as California’s wildfires, the documentary places the emphasis back on a problem that’s lost awareness because the success of Al Gore’s ‘An Annoying Truth’ in 2006.
“I think there are huge income interests at the office here & most of the sceptics are well-funded with a very informed disinformation campaign to keep people sort of sleeping and never watching this issue. So I are usually extremely sceptical, but I believe it’s very important to evaluate each one of the sceptics’ fights cautiously so when you evaluate them, they break apart, they break apart within the light of technology,” said Cameron.
Within the first show, that is currently available on-line, Hollywood actor Don Cheadle takes the lead, providing a speech to climate change sceptics in Texas who think droughts are due to the hand of God.
‘Years of Living Dangerously’ premieres this month on US Cable Television.
