It's time to see the action

COP26 Featured Image 2

The issue of climate change is an important issue that must take its real size in the global media, and media colleges and journalism institutes should introduce environmental media as a curriculum that is taught in them.Institutions and media in the West have not stopped highlighting this important issue for all people, and it can be monitored and observed in many films, documentaries, animation films, television programs, news bulletins, articles and research, because the media is well aware of the repercussions and dangers of climate change, due to the proximity of these institutions And the means from the source, and the research centers special in this regard, as well as taking into account the news values ​​in determining the priorities for the dissemination of news and topics, and allocating them to actual financial budgets to research the folds of this dangerous topic and presenting its details with analysis, interpretation and scientific evidence to the public.

Since the future generation is currently children and adolescents, we must highlight the current situation of the environment for them at various levels so that they are attracted to this issue and bring it closer to their minds and influence them, by using what they love, such as animated films, for example Disney recently launched the promotional presentation for the second part of the animated movie (Frozen), which was released in theaters, and after watching the promotional clip several times, I noticed its propaganda contents focusing on the issue of climate change; Most notably, when a character from the film appears in the movie, trying hard to stop the high waves of water from reaching the land using her supernatural (imaginary) abilities to turn water into snow, and she continues to try to stop these high and frightening waves several times, but to no avail, and this particular scene embodies What happens daily in the Arctic is the melting of ice and the drowning of many animals and creatures, and some of them have even begun to become extinct, which poses a threat to the environment in general, and to the countries near the coast in particular.The role played by this type of media (animation and sponsored advertisements) in spreading awareness among individuals, especially children and adolescents within societies, to preserve the environment and to address phenomena such as climate change and disasters such as global warming, as cinema and animated films were able to correctly present the problem of the environment. Whether it's through provocative dramas like Take Shelter, or brilliant animation like the Japanese movie Princess Mononoke, some filmmakers have managed to put a lot of thought and imagination into their exploration of the climate crisis on screen and how the issue is presented. On the screens to attract children and individuals, and from there are several films that have been tackled to talk about environmental problems, such :

First movie is FernGully: The Last Rainfores ,The animated film Fern Galli (1992) is set in a mysterious Australian rainforest. It tells the story of a group of fairies who welcome a young lumberjack. Likewise, the spirits and animals of the forest must defend their habitat against loggers and a polluting force known as the Hexas. Fern Galley provides a perfect example of environmental messaging directed mostly to children, and a plausible environmental tale voiced by a cast of stars including Robin Williams, Tim Curry and Pamela Aldon and the plant-loving comedy duo Chick and Chong.

The second movie is Princess Mononok Most beloved Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki's animated films deal with environmental issues, but few have done so directly as the classic Princess Mononoke (1998). Mononoke tells the story of a struggle between human industrialists (led by the ruthless Mrs. Eboshi) and the forces of the natural world. It takes a poignant look, embodied in beautiful animation, at the toll humanity inflicts on its environment, as well as what happens when the environment responds to attack.

Finally, I change the weather with you. Japanese animator Makoto Shinkai has cemented his name by directing visually stunning films, often highlighting elements of nature (The Garden of Words; Your Name). At the heart of his story, through a strange plot in supernatural circumstances. A high school boy befriends a girl who can control the weather. It's a movie specifically about climate change, and it's a work that can be enjoyed to the full on a purely visual level. As much as his message suggests, his handling of the climate catastrophe ultimately amounts to an acceptance mixed with disapproval.

So I think that the media, with all its means, can really change, even if it is something as simple as conveying the truth Focusing on making films and animations aimed at spreading environmental and humanitarian issues and influencing people. So are there other ways that the media can help in the issue of climate change, and how can that be?!

"someday later"

I hope that what we seek will be achieved by changing this situation and saving our planet from destruction, so we cooperate in various ways, professions and races to help our planet survive!

    What an interesting discussion starter, insightful_starfish! I have awarded you with a star for the way you have made connections between our topic and films. I wonder if any other students could explain how COP26 and perspectives links to any films they have seen or books they have read?

      I watched Alexander Payne’s movie Downsizing (2017), which includes a Hollywood crew, and I learned about the climate crisis and its damage, and Water World (1995) was ahead of its time in many ways, as it is a high-budget thriller that has made a resounding resonance. , and touched on several contemporary concerns about the future of our climate, and also the film ArcticTale: This film talks about the impact of climate change on life in the Arctic, by highlighting the stories of families of animals, including the polar bear, and it was very interesting, and for books I read the book "Prehistoric Climate" This book begins with an introduction in the first two chapters And the second you talk about its two sides, the period beforeHistory and climate change, what do they mean?And how reliable is the information we receive about it? Are these results valid?Then he moves on to a long talk about the climate a hundred thousand years ago, and how life was in the Ice Age, as well as opens the door to another long talk about the evolutionary effects of life in the Stone Age, then out of the Ice Age, and then presents a climatic theory, replacing Controversy, you say climate determinism, and then a final talk about predictions aboutOur future If this is the past, frankly books and films have helped me a lot in learning about the problem of climate change.

      How I Got Diverse Theories Because of Jeff Kinney's Student Diary.
      You might think it's just a normal book just for fun, but when you use every word in it correctly it will be different, I've been sitting reading books and linking our current topic "climate change" to it, one day Greg had to work for money, so he launched a service Lawn mowers, and when a customer called, Greg went but didn't do anything right so he didn't even know how to use a lawn mower, and it caught my attention to talk about two things related to climate change, first to say about occupations and how we might use a lawn mower. In it green skills, also attracted me to change my theory towards the farmer, i.e. I always said the farmer is the one who saves the earth now, but actually when I saw Greg, I preferred to look at the environment in which I live, I saw that he has no experience in his work so he does traditional farming, ie spraying Pesticides, putting animal manure as fertilizer, permanent irrigation of the soil, and other wrong things in agriculture
      Greg was also a teenager addicted to video games, his mother tried to get him and the neighborhood kids to read books, but they quickly left, so I decided to come up with solutions in order to exploit this addiction in climate change, and this is by collaborating with game companies, and issuing More games about climate change in which the player can be aware, and I talked about how we can take advantage of the players’ opinions and I said that we can attract them to spread their opinions through events to launch new games, or their opinions on how to apply the green environment in the games to reality using the methods they use Players, that is, using their focus and creativity in games for an environment that is more resistant to climate crises
      Also, when I saw the neglect of books and their importance, but the mother was very sad about their neglect of books, I decided to make books also a part of this battle, through book signing parties and exploiting them in order to educate readers, and to support writers more to write about the environment It also attracts comic book writers
      And Greg helped me with his teenage personality in taking into account many aspects related to adolescents, where instead of educating them only in seminars, we should educate them by using what they love, especially their talents, as this is how we make them feel the importance of their voices and that their presence in this battle is one of the most important steps that we have to apply
      Greg also really attracted me to realize the environment in which I lived, because he was an introverted person. I became wondering why he was antisocial. What I found was because of the environment in which he was living, where no one understands him or attracts his attention and no one asks him for his opinion , that is why he supported me to talk about the voices of poor countries that are also ignored, and not to think about their views, and also supported me Greg and his introverted personality to talk about the reality experienced by teenagers. Exploiting the fame of South Korean teams, training teens to think creatively through global conversations

        The movie I know is called "the Larx" by Chris Renaud
        it's about a little boy trying to save seeds from a crazy mayor and give them to a creature called "the Larox" to preserve the environment.
        it Connects with climate protection as it is future-oriented enough to properly convey universal topics to children and at the same time convey the serious impacts of deforestation and industrialization

      When I read the most interesting books on climate change issues, it is “High Tide on Main Street” by John Englander, one of the most famous experts in the field of sea level rise and its effects, the book was translated into Arabic by the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences last year 2017, the book is distinguished above all The ease of its language and the simplicity of its presentation compared to other Arabic books, authored and translated, so it uses a professional story style that attracts you from chapter to chapter despite the complexity of its topics little by little, so you can resist the boredom of information no matter how many, but there is another feature of the book that made it more attractive, which is that it addresses the interests of People Directly, in other words, Englander makes a direct connection between those issues from which the reader may consider himself distant, and the economic interests of that reader.

      For example, you find it begins with a simple chapter in which the inhabitants of the Earth are likened to the inhabitants of the Titanic who continued to celebrate despite the many signs, stressing that what we have of scientific evidence cannot be denied, the sea level is rising at a pace that predicts that the ice of the whole world may melt, which means that sea water will It completes a rise that it started before history, to reach another new level that threatens a catastrophic future, which is distinguished in the first chapters that the book sets smart examples like these, the example of the Titanic, which facilitates the scientific material of the book a lot.
      The writer then continues to detail the main problems of climate change that cause sea level rise, presenting a historical aspect at the beginning, then proceeding to presenting evidence of climate change, then explaining its mechanisms and how they occur, then moving from the eleventh chapter to the application of those disasters in practice. On certain cities in the United States, to predict a clear decline in the real estate market, for example, and then move on to offer a set of solutions

        The movie I know is called "I'm Greta" by Nathan Grossman
        It's about a young girl making striking for the climate. She skipped school and sat in front of Congress, telling authorities that if they don't care about her future. Why should she do that?
        it's is related to climate protection because we have to do something before it's too late, the change itself begins by ourselves and it shows that the future of the environment is our future.

      Thomas Edison's book from the series "International Personalities" by Abdel Moneim Al-Hashemi

      This book talks about the life of Thomas Edison from beginning to end, and I interpreted the actions and characteristics of Thomas Edison throughout his life in order to link the topic to climate change

      "Thomas Edison was curious and liked to know everything, so he turned to study and know everything he could see."
      We can also, as adolescents, children and adults, do like Edison, to cultivate in ourselves a love of knowledge of the environmental reality in which we live, because when we realize this environmental reality, we will think,And thinking will result in the environmental awareness that we have gained as a result of contemplating the environment and knowing what we have spoiled in it and feeling resentment and the desire to be a part of fixing it

      "When Thomas Edison was asked about the qualities necessary for success, he said: Imagination, ambition, and determination at work"
      Governments and institutions can also exploit the imagination that we children and adolescents can produce, and this imagination will be developed for innovation, And when this matter begins to produce young inventors, parents will be encouraged to send their children, and this will increase environmentally friendly technological inventions, and this will open the way for us to start a green path in all fields.
      Also appreciating the ambition of people, as we have him talking about his goal and dream, we have to support him in order to think how he will make his goal help the environment, For example, if his goal is to become an ambassador, he will say, “I will improve relations between my country and the host country in order to provide good relations between the experts of the two countries , and the two peoples exchange ideas and skills, that is, we help generations to advance the environment and the world itself ”
      and the determination to work, and this is represented by our support for people and their goals in order to motivate them to achieve their goals

      "Thomas Edison was responsible for the tower that his father built, and he was advertising and publicizing people to enjoy the wonderful scenes and landscapes from atop this high tower, for a small amount of no more than a quarter of a dollar"
      In my opinion, we must also build more beautiful landscapes, and add creative touches to them in urban construction, and from it we can develop our methods in urban construction and build tourist landscapes , Helping to increase the percentage of planting trees and taking care of the landscape, and encouraging governments to build greener in all areas,Because it really raises the economy, whether through tourism or by reducing the use of pollutants that we completely adopt

      Thomas Edison's invention of the photograph
      We can take advantage of this great invention, which was actually one of Edison's favorite inventions, to record the suggestions of deaf people to solve environmental problems through which we can take a step forward in climate change,And this invention and its exploitation will help us in increasing the participation of the deaf in solving global issues, and this will increase the community’s respect for each other and respect for the different groups of society.

        the movie I know is called "how to train your dragon" by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois
        It`s about a teenage boy "the village chief`s son" whose village has been killing dragons for centuries but he was the first one to stop this and shows that dragons aren`t dangerous.
        it links to the power of perspectives because it shows us that we shouldn`t follow others - we need to have our own look from a different angle from others to do the right thing no matter it takes.

      I also read Christian Parenti, author of the popular book Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence, in which he puts together a concept linking the violent political and social crises you have faced or encountered. , the countries located between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, such as Somalia, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Afghanistan, etc., with climatic changes, where climate change began, in this strip between the two tropics, where there are 46 countries with a population of about three billion people, striking hard Suddenly more than any other region in the world, communities within this sector are highly dependent on agriculture and fishing and are therefore most threatened by changes in weather patterns, which ultimately cause severe societal changes.


      Parenti sees, and provides evidence for this, that the expected scenario, which has already begun, is that there are Western military planners and political leaders, who already know the dangers of the mixture of political turmoil with climate change, and they expect the emergence of cruel extremism in the form of civil wars, refugee flows, and genocide and social collapses driven. All climatic - in the parents' expression -, and in response, these military and politicians imagine an open counter-insurgency project to be applied at the global level, in order to suppress asylum and prevent this violence from entering their countries, but Parenti assures that this will not be enough, intertropics live more than Three billion people, neither walls, nor barbed wire, nor heavy weapons will do anything to quell this terrible attack on men suffering from hunger, disease, fanaticism, and poverty. Human civilization will surely perish if this is the plan.

      The book is simple in its presentation, anyone can read it, it begins its chapters with real stories and then moves from them to analyzes that serve his idea, contains a large amount of information from all sides, draws his hypothesis and serves it well. Easily through a plethora of examples, and of course the parental perceptions he builds in his book, or even studies that suggest it, still hypotheses based on interdependence which is said to imply causation, but does not yet have sufficient evidence to support them but in the end, we Certain that climate change has a direct impact on food security, which means that political and military conflict is not far from the chorus of land problems with climate change.

      prehistoric climate
      This book by the author of the book this time, William James Burroughs, attempts to touch on the history of climate change in our world, not during the previous hundred years, or even a thousand years, but during prehistory, taking us to the ice ages that humans experienced before, how did they interact with it? And how did it affect their reality, their behavior, their development to reach what we are now? And when did they get out?

      Perhaps many do not know that our current age is only what we call an “interglacial period”, where, due to the influence of the Earth by the movement of the celestial bodies adjacent to it, its tilt changes very slowly with time, because of this tendency changes the positions of the focus of sunlight on parts without others in the sphere The earth, and throughout the day, the entire ecosystem changes, so Africa becomes a barren desert - for example - after it was a green paradise in which hundreds of thousands of species of living creatures roamed, so the condition of the earth is not fixed, but rather fluctuates between successive ice ages.

      The book begins with an introduction in chapters one and two that talks about its two sides, prehistory and climate change, what do each of them mean? And how reliable is the information we receive about him? Are these results valid? Then he moves on to a long talk about the climate a hundred thousand years ago, and how life was in the Ice Age. Controversy, she says of climate determinism, and then a final talk about predictions about our future if this is the past.

    When I watch the movie the day after tomorrow

    I noticed that of all the blockbuster films about environmental disasters released over the past two decades, The Day After Tomorrow (2004) is still as strong as ever. That tape was released during the presidency of George W. Bush, and it came as a clear political action under the veneer of the entertaining movie, and a desperate cry towards the US government's inaction on the issue of the environment. Scientifically speaking, it's a messy movie, but the core idea of ​​its premise, that human sustainability is pushing the world to the brink of catastrophe, is still frighteningly true.

    When I was browsing YouTube, I found the movie (Water World)
    I was curious to watch it
    When I watched it, I found that (1995) was ahead of its time in many ways, a high-budget thriller that made a resounding resonance, and touched upon many contemporary concerns about the future of our climate. Famous for his failure at the box office, his star Kevin Costner has been living the consequences ever since. In contrast, you can often see that money on the screen. The "Water World" is still one of the unforgettable visions, in its realization of the effects of global warming that are likely to change the world.

    The Film or I should say a Japanese animation series I know is called "Dr. Stone" which is Directed by Shinya Iino and Written by Yuichiro Kido.

    The film is about a dazzling green light striking the Earth, scaring everyone and turning them to stone all around the world. Several millennia later, Taiju, a robust school kid, awakens to find that the modern world has vanished, and that nature has flourished during the period when civilization was at a standstill. In the stone world of statues, Taiju comes finds one other living human: his science-loving foe Senkuu, who has been active for a few months. Senkuu has created a massive scheme to use science to spark the entire restoration of civilisation, Taiju discovers. Taiju's strength and Senkuu's intelligence combine to form a formidable combination, and they quickly figure out how to resurrect the petrified.

    In my lens, this story relates and links to both "The power of perspective" and "Protecting the climate" at the same time.

    The power of perspective because in the story, The main character Senkuu uses his knowledge, science and intelligence to rebuild and restore the past modern world slowly through using natural resources. But when some humans defy and go against his perspective, the situation got worse. SO EVERY PERSPECTIVE IS IMPORTANT AND EQUAL IRRESPECTIVE OF STRENGTH, POWER ETC. EVEN A SCHOOL KID CAN CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH HIS KNOWLEDGE.

    And at last, "Protecting the climate" because the story tells us about an apocalyptic event which we can relate to a consequence of climate change and afterwards, Sekuu's actions which we can relate to steps we must take to tackle and protect our climate.

    You're right in fact, I watched that movie (Frozen) it was a really great movie, I didn't notice that part about climate change until after watching it a few times, and also I watched a movie that I don't remember the name very well , that was talking about someone who committed a sin in the past and He cut down all the trees to complete his industry, which needed trees in a big way, and this negatively affected the future of the planet, and who fell into the shoulders of a young child who knew the story and found the last seed, and ended the time when people were buying fresh air in it ، I really liked how the writer framed the movie and how he made its events insanely sequential, making you never tire of re-watching it.
    I also liked that he added a child in the film to emphasize the importance of children and their important role in decision-making. Without the courage of this child and his taking the right decision, the whole planet would be in danger. There are many programs that can be made so that the viewer is excited to watch the program and interact with it greatly, but the text must be written beautifully and not boring, so as not to push the viewer to change to another channel.

    I watched (The Ides of March 2011) which talking about Stephen Meyers who is the junior campaign manager of the presidential candidate Mike Morris. However, he gets him involved in a major political scandal that jeopardises Mike's shot at presidency. The movie linked the perspectives of how people think about the candidates and the life behind the scene of elections . it really made me woder if these people are saying truth or it's just to have voices . l think this movie reflects this issue.

    I've seen the movie An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore.
    Last week, it was discussed that some people were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and by chance, I was looking for information about this movie, and I found that this movie was also awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
    Each of us has his opinion about what he saw in the movie, and my opinion is:
    Al Gore's 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded, according to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, because he "is perhaps the only person who has done everything possible to create a greater global understanding of the measures to be taken" regarding climate change and globalization. heating.
    The problem is that I feel Gore was not worthy of the award because he didn't practice as often as he advocated because in 2006 shocking electric and gas bills from Gore's house showed that his 20-room house and "pool house" used up 20 times more than the average Electricity consumption. at the national level.
    I say this information based on what I have read.
    Also, from my point of view, I think how ironic the title of this movie is for Gore now, when he looks in the mirror. This movie is perfect for a political science class, a science based solely on politics.
    This is my opinion, do not take me to heart for the words of the surgeon, I like frankness and not courtesy.
    Also from my point of view my friends who deny climate change, I usually tell them their right, there is nothing wrong with the environment, and they continue to consume at their natural rates. Enhance and refine your warrior spirit while
    Service in the world, and light the path according to your inner light.
    I want to ask you a question?
    If you shut down the planet, sit in your car, start the engine, will you survive?

        In my opinion, we should not tell them that they are right, because if we tell them, we will say that there is no climate issue and there is none of this talk, then no one will care about the climate issue. Therefore, when we and our friends take a picnic, we tell them and educate them about the climate crisis in remarkable ways, for example By making a video explaining the climate issue, but in a beautiful way, not as a way to explain the lessons, but in an interesting form so that we can convince him of them. For example, in the form of puzzles and their solutions, he can benefit or in the form of an entertaining game. The interesting and the interesting, in which each page is more interesting than the one before it, and I think that if we put a small article within the curricula, we can also educate the students through it. Of course, everyone has a phone that browses on websites. We can define the climate issue in a matter of seconds, and I am sure that there will be curiosity that makes him learn about the climate issue and he will open up about it and see what the climate issue is.

    We have learned from some novels and films that tell us about the concept of democracy, which is the opposite of dictatorship. I have created films and novels about the importance of democracy and about it in general and in particular. A film was created by the British in 2007 and it was called “War on Democracy.”
    The aim of this film was to criticize the United States for its interference in the affairs of foreign countries in which politics is involved, as well as the wars against terrorists. This film won the award for the first international television documentary
    This film was reviewing the history of some of the wars that took place in America since ancient times
    The great benefit of this film was that democracy is an essential thing and has value in the freedom and rights of people, and that with the intervention of other parties, democracy will not take place in the state, and this state will not be able after that to rid themselves of the dictatorship of the authoritarian state, which was able to be an important party in this state and to destroy Its policies and its power, and this people will be angry with the act of politics in the interference of other parties. Each person must abide by his own laws and constitution and leave the other countries to themselves and not do as the United States did with the other foreign country in interfering in the democracy of other countries

    The Avatar After the huge box office success of James Cameron's computer-generated animated film Avatar (2009) and its rapid disappearance from public memory, work has become a rather easy target. In any case, this ridiculous, weeping feature-length film remains surprisingly semantic. Work accidents take place in a reality witnessing the death of the earth, after it was destroyed by a combination of global warming, depletion of the ozone layer and overpopulation. Avatar turns his attention to another planet called Pandora, which is also facing a climate catastrophe as a result of human misconduct.

    Take Shelter movie

    Michael Shannon delivers a torturous and complex performance in Jeff Nichols' 2011 film "Escape to the Shelter," about a young family patriarch who experiences visions of the end of the world. We'll never be able to tell if he's exactly out of his mind or if he's totally right. When a character reaches the stage of phobias and fears, we know that there is always a possibility that their fears are embedded in reality, and the catastrophe they fear is very reasonable, no matter how hard we try to overlook them.

    Weathering with You . movie

    Japanese animator Makoto Shinkai has cemented his name by directing visually stunning films, often highlighting elements of nature (The Garden of Words; Your Name). At the heart of his story, through a strange plot in supernatural circumstances. A high school boy befriends a girl who can control the weather. It's a movie specifically about climate change, and it's a work that can be enjoyed to the full on a purely visual level. As much as his message suggests, his handling of the climate catastrophe ultimately amounts to an acceptance mixed with disapproval.

    Snowpiercer movie

    Bong Joon-ho, the esteemed Korean director whose latest movie "Parasite" hit the Oscars two years ago, has made no secret of his environmental ideology. "Okja", which he directed in 2017, was a whimsical but powerful work dealing with genetic engineering and animal welfare. He also filmed his movie, which was released before "Okja", titled "Snowbreaker" (2013) in a world covered in ice after a failed attempt by humans to stop global warming. There are many elements to this work. It's mostly a thriller, focusing on class warfare, but the environmental message of "Snowbreaker" accompanies the entire film.

    I watched the film "All The Way" talking about democracy and author: Rorte Xincan. And of course, others have helped.I know this is a great movie..!I knew it when i saw the first five minutes.. Bryan Cranston has embraced LBJ and given him back to us, to someone who was raised in the south during the Vietnam War... I tell you... it was very crazy and thought provoking, it was as if LBJ was alive again... God Forbid! LBJ was one American President who understood power and very cruelly...... He took over after the death of JFK; He championed the great society !!! He put us in to Vietnam when JFK was trying to get us out of Nam... He tried to bring America together and America tore itself apart America gotused to Jackie and the lovely young kids, he gave us Lady Bird and the bird children; He was relevant, at the helm, and he knew how to pilot a ship. What he didn't realize, America was sold on JFK's idea of a new America born in this century... Johnson was still in a post civil war America based on pandering and favors, and the bull whip... I love this movie.. Gosh.. it sometimes scares the heck out of me!l! When I watch it... I go clear back to 1964 and it is the Democratic Convention all over again.. I watched it every evening with my mom... no air conditioning, just the sultry heat, and the Louisiana humidity making our dog drag that chain across the porch witha constant monotonous rattle. This movie moves my inner self. Wow!!I want to relive it and am ashamed of it..They certainly did a good job on this one.

    I've seen the movie An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore.
    Last week, it was discussed that some people were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and by chance, I was looking for information about this movie, and I found that this movie was also awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
    Each of us has his opinion about what he saw in the movie, and my opinion is:
    Al Gore's 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded, according to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, because he "is perhaps the only person who has done everything possible to create a greater global understanding of the measures to be taken" regarding climate change and globalization. heating.
    The problem is that I feel Gore was not worthy of the award because he didn't practice as often as he advocated because in 2006 shocking electric and gas bills from Gore's house showed that his 20-room house and "pool house" used up 20 times more than the average Electricity consumption. at the national level.
    I say this information based on what I have read.
    Also, from my point of view, I think how ironic the title of this movie is for Gore now, when he looks in the mirror. This movie is perfect for a political science class, a science based solely on politics.
    This is my opinion, do not take me to heart for the words of the surgeon, I like frankness and not courtesy.
    Also from my point of view my friends who deny climate change, I usually tell them their right, there is nothing wrong with the environment, and they continue to consume at their natural rates. Enhance and refine your warrior spirit while
    Service in the world, and light the path according to your inner light.
    I want to ask you a question?
    If you shut down the planet, sit in your car, start the engine, will you survive?

    I watched "Change the Weather With You" by Makoto Shinaki, where he talks about the effects of change. In the weather, it was very bad because it was raining all day in Tokyo and people couldn't go to work as there was a boy named Hodoka who ran away from his home to Tokyo and when he arrived he found her the opposite of what he expected as he tried to look for work but was refused until the work of a magazine publisher in One day he met a girl named Hina who lives with her little brother and found them and she is able to change the weather for the better. There are many sad and happy scenes. The situations that I liked where they tell us a lot about the reality of living in a city like Tokyo and others, but the situations that I liked most were when Hina was looking for Hodaka. I found him in a deserted place sitting alone and told him what was wrong with him, his looks of sadness contrasted with him, but during that I asked him to go with her to the roof of the building, and the weather was raining heavily, then she saw a light streak of sunlight after Hina hurried and prayed until I was able to stop the rain and the sun started Appearing from all over the sky, Hodaka showed a stunned surprise at the situation that happened, but it was one of the most beautiful situations that I have seen so far in the anime. Good, it gives spirit, hope and doing business. The cases are clarified in terms of economy. The film was comprehensive of all events and most of them represented our lives in reality, so I recommend watching it🤍

    The films of nature, environment, climate and cosmic disasters work greatly to reduce the climate phenomenon, as it is the favorite of many people. Many of them shed light on the problem of climate change, which is one of the most important phenomena that our planet has been suffering from in recent years.
    But what bothers and baffles me about the whole topic of climate change, and all of these really major environmental issues, is that world leaders are going to get together at a huge summit, and meet around, and “reaffirm their commitment” (one of their favorite lines) to fight climate change. Then they make up a neat pose, and pose in front of the camera, as if to say this will be remembered as the moment of a group of historical buzzwords, where the world changed forever. Then they go back to their states, and start doing all about anything. Until the next peak, where the cycle repeats.
    But we keep saying we're destroying the planet and changing the temperature for the worse, but are we?
    A world that gets a little warmer is better than getting colder. Coupled with an increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the world is getting greener and crops are producing greater yields.
    More people die in the cold than in warm weather, so personally if it's the cheap energy that lifts all economies and lifts millions out of poverty that leads to a slight increase in temperature which we can easily adapt to, then I don't see a problem with that.
    Unfortunately there are more people interested in short-term profit than long-term sustainability. Most people don't care until it affects them Then it will certainly be too late.
    Meanwhile ,governments and large corporations are providing these people with the means to pollute and destroy the environment in the name of profit.
    My opinion after I realized and realized what the problem of climate change is.
    It Climate change is way exaggerated in the media and the scientific community. Do humans have an impact on the climate? Yes, but not too much. Is climate change happening? Yes, because the climate is self-regulating. Personally, I would be more concerned about our impact on the environment than the climate. Is anyone interested in the largest source of heat in the solar system? And anyway, it all looks scary when you look at it through a microscope. As you narrow your focus, more detail pops up, even a slight ripple looks like a mountain range, and the house fly looks like a monster from outer space is here to kill us all.
    Maybe you shouldn't believe me or the humans who they tell us about climate change. But we cannot ignore the signs that the earth gives. Why did the earth have a balanced biodiversity? What about the human population and the planet's endurance???
    I'm not denying climate change, I'm just denying the extent of the impact these studies have. It is perfectly normal for the Earth's climate to fluctuate.
    I'm not trying to say we don't have any influence. It's about leaders, "If they don't care about their citizens in the short term, why the hell would they care about them in the long run?"
    Finally I would like to say:
    Go look for the expanding Earth, look at the crustal age maps, and see how it works
    seasons, and see how climate is produced by land elevation and geographic location. You may begin to see a picture form of what the Earth is and what it does.

    Your Impact on the Environment You Don't Know" by Tatiana Schloss Berg

    The book talks about the impact of technology, food, and manufactured clothing on the climate. The book aims to educate the reader about the dangers of climate change, not make him feel guilty.
    You might think it's just an ordinary book for fun, but when you use every word in it correctly it will be different I sit and read books and relate our current topic to climate change. In the end, we are sure that climate change has a direct impact on technology..

    As you mentioned in the post a number of animations that played a major role in spreading awareness of the dangers of environmental pollution and the dangers of climate change. I agree with you and found this idea. Why? Japanese animation, me and all my generation from school. We do not leave anime until we have seen it. I think it is a smart idea to spread this awareness at an early age and instill it in the minds of teenagers by using something that they are greatly attracted to, so I will mention some anime that talk and discuss environmental issues such as:
    1- Princess Mononoke anime, and this is what I talked about in the above Boss: The film presents an epic story that began in medieval Japan in the Iron Age, specifically why in this era people were divided into two parts, one still living in understanding with nature, and another He tries to challenge it and defeat it as humans, animals and nature all fight to try to take their share of the life system there in the context of the adventure. This is what we have reached to this dangerous stage of environmental pollution
    2Silver Spoon Anime: This anime talks about the empty agricultural high school of Azu and tells about the daily life of a student called Yugo Hutchikin, who enrolls in the school to escape from his strict father, but to be surprised that life with nature and the life of a farmer is not easy. Agriculture helps the environment
    3 Rain of Memories: It is true that this animation does not fully talk about nature, but it tells the story of a female employee named Taiko who enjoys spending her vacation in the agricultural countryside to breathe about her time, remembering her childhood days associated with nature. with her
    4The anime Voices of Transformation: It is a film that studies the danger posed by agricultural production due to the scarcity of energy and natural resources. The film’s endowment is: Rising oil prices have led to constantly rising food prices, and this rise actually represents a major weakness in the global food supply chain. The film depicts how dependence on oil is And the fuels that will be completely exhausted in the end will cause a shock to the world as we depend entirely on fossil fuels and oil for our lives and it directly affects the source of the basic food supply to the world

    1-MANHO "Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective" Written by Akira Amano

    2-It's talking about a couple that sheds light on the truth,they collaborate to solve the most complex puzzles

    3-They are related to the strength of perspectives because their accuracy in solving problems will affect us as well, and thus we will gain experience from them, and if we link these perspectives to climate change, the most convincing theories will be the ones that find solutions or Journalists' perspectives that prove political scandals, and this is how we will help make society aware of everything that happens behind political tables

    2-It talks about a flash that petrifies the world and all the creatures on it, and when Senku wakes up, he is the hero rebuilding civilization with science

    3- It is related to the environment, where even though all humans were petrified, nature was covered with a green dress, but when humans began to get out of petrification day after day the fights and the use of gunpowder and the manufacture of weapons to protect oneself and attack the enemies (other humans) increased and this was a source of air pollution , This matter is related to climate change because it shows that international political conflicts, colonialism and wars are among the foundations of many forms of pollution, so they must be stopped and an article by the United Nations to solve them so that we can achieve global climate peace

    Activating the role of the media in creating good awareness among the public about the phenomenon of climate change and its various effects is something that may contribute to rationalizing the behavior of citizens in a way that limits negative practices that increase the multiplication of this phenomenon and its damages. Therefore, there are many strategies to activate the role of the media in raising awareness, especially in Arab countries. Including the launch of a specialized Arab communication platform that will be a major source of information and a reference for researchers, an observatory for all climate fluctuations, similar to international platforms such as the Climate Action Platform and the Youth Platform for Climate Action launched by UNICEF under the slogan of raising youth voices to protect the future

    The anime that I will be talking about today is Neon Genesis Evangelion. The author of the anime talks about the year 2000. The great catastrophe occurs and a loud explosion occurs that causes destruction and devastation in most parts of the earth and annihilates half of the human race. The Arctic is melting, causing an increase in the water level and disasters. Humanity is everywhere, this historical event was known as the Second Impact (it seems that Anu was influenced by the predictions of the end of the world in the year 2000 that were widely circulated in the nineties).. Well, a few years later, specifically in 2015, our story begins, the developed city of Tokyo-3 It's what's left of Japan, but hey, it's not an ordinary city at all, where creatures called Angels appear and start attacking this city in particular. This organization is humanity's last line of defense against aggressors and uses advanced "Evangelion" mechanisms to fight Well, this is only a brief about the story, and while the first half of the series presents beautiful and fierce battles between "Eve" and the Angels, things develop little by little in the second half to form one of the most complex and most philosophical stories in the history of anime! What really distinguishes the story of the work is the deep psychological analysis of the characters, who appear in an incomparably shaky and turbulent manner to this day, in addition to the highly complex religious coding in the series and these matters were not preceded by Evangelion, which enabled the series to cause confusion at all levels. .

    Have you ever thought about the purpose of cartoons or cartoons?
    Well, I will tell you, its purpose is to deliver a message to children, raise their awareness and instill values ​​in them and who are young, so do not prevent your son or daughter from watching cartoons, as it carries meanings, significance and a hidden goal that he will understand when watching it.

    I chose another movie, Rainforest, directed by Bill Croquel, and he talks about a mysterious and secret forest in which fairies live. She went to an area where he knew it was the shadow and Zach almost crushed it with the tree, but she accidentally reduced him to the size of a fairy and decided to take him to their forest. They can't save the trees unless they turn around the tree and use all their magic to do so, and Zack helps them solve the problem.
    Also, it is the right of any creature and animal to defend and protect its homeland with all its might.

    Do you know what the purpose of this story is?

    Let me tell you that its purpose is to prove the importance of the environment in the minds and hearts of children at an early age and also to punish those who want to cut down trees and also to plant more trees and its importance and this helps with climate change.

    When I was watching a movie
    Fern Galle: The Last Rainforest
    I noticed that the events of the animated movie "Fern Galli" (1992) take place in a mysterious Australian rainforest. It tells the story of a group of fairies who welcome a young lumberjack. Likewise, the spirits and animals of the forest must defend their habitat against loggers and a polluting force known as the Hexas. Fern Galley provides a perfect example of environmental messaging directed mostly to children, and a plausible environmental tale voiced by a cast of stars including Robin Williams, Tim Curry and Pamela Aldon and the plant-loving comedy duo Chick and Chong.

    (Avatar )
    After the huge box office success of James Cameron's computer-generated movie Avatar (2009) and its rapid disappearance from public memory, work has become a somewhat of an easy target. In any case, this ridiculous, weeping feature-length film remains surprisingly loaded with semantics. Work accidents take place in a reality that witnesses the death of the earth, after it was destroyed by a combination of global warming, depletion of the ozone layer and overpopulation. Avatar turns his attention to another planet called Pandora, which is also facing a climate catastrophe as a result of human misconduct.

    (The Tropic of Chaos) which attracts the attention, of Andrew Dessler and Edward Parson, will fulfill the desires of many in an integrated digestion of the problems of climate change. , environmental and natural resources, and public policy, both of which have an interest in studying the complex relationship between science and politics in general, and in issues of climate change in particular.


    This distinguished book presents, in its five chapters, to a set of open discussions on climate change issues, which always have two sides, where science is not only concerned, although this seems obvious, to decide on them, but rather political differences over the common and conflicting interests of countries intervene. , and companies alike, in that controversy, as the book provides, or as the authors call it “the evidence”, in the last chapter an important guide for the expected paths in the future, with a set of future recommendations.

    The language of the book is easy, it begins with a simplified and rich scientific introduction to climate change, in fact the authors are concerned with that point, and Dassler is particularly interested in that part because he sees that one of the biggest problems in climate change issues is understanding the scientific aspects, whether by the public or politicians, after that he addresses The book, starting from the second chapter, focuses on the general characteristics of the scientific and political debate on climate change, and then moves on to the important issue of the human role in bringing about climate change.

    Also, I watched Fleeman, and I wanted to share with you guys
    1_ The film (Downsizing) directed by Alexander Payne (2017), which includes a Hollywood crew of the highest caliber, addresses the climate crisis explicitly. And we see Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig shrink down to a tiny size in a new technological fad. The plot is full of drama, we might say too much, and the film's cute, suburban satire quickly turns into an exploration of wealth inequality and the end of the world. It's not particularly scary or particularly funny, but Downsizing deserves a high rating for its utterly unique approach to the subject.
    2_ (Princess Mononoke) by Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, but few of them tackled them directly, as did the classic "Princess Mononoke" (1998). Mononoke tells the story of a struggle between human industrialists (led by the ruthless Mrs. Eboshi) and the forces of the natural world. It takes a poignant look, embodied in beautiful animation, at the toll humanity inflicts on its environment, as well as what happens when the environment responds to attack.

    Welcome to earth, it's a book with plays with different stories but the standout one is welcome to earth I've read this book many times over the last two years but now that I've become fully aware of the issue of climate change I'm looking at things in different directions really I'm trying Connecting everything to the issue of climate change and I have already discovered that nothing is free of climate change. For example, if we talk about the play “Welcome to Earth”, in short, it is about aliens who descended to Earth and were very eager to learn about the nature of life on Earth and decided that I would stay in it for a while, but I did not They were able to find out the best place to reside, so they decided to disperse in different countries, and then choose the best country.
    If we look closely at the play here, we will see, first of all, that the aliens were very enthusiastic about getting to know the planet, but they did not realize the extent of the destruction of the earth in the planet and the extent of the many problems that threaten life on the planet. The decision must be made, and the laziness must not be taken, and this did not happen because they did not try until this time to consider the issue of climate change in the first place
    And when the members dispersed and returned, they had seen the wonders on the planet of beauty, destruction, killing and famine, and here was a scene highlighting the strength of the different perspectives, as each member was able to communicate the pros or cons that he saw during his research, and this must apply to our countries. Each president searches in his country to conclude the most important problems of his country that should not be tolerated in order to raise his voice in them and be resolved
    In the end, the aliens decided to stay on Earth to change it to a better and safer place, and this is what should happen to our planet already, but instead of aliens, this should be the role of heads of state. The role of different people from each country with a different mindset is leadership capable of tackling a global problem and the life issue of our planet

    the book i know is the seven habits of highly effective people by stephen R. He is considered one of the most famous and influential writers on self-improvement.
    Stephen begins by addressing the beginning with a sentence (from the inside out),and it mean that effective change starts by changing our internal concepts to reflect effectively on our external behavior, and on the events around us and tells us the story of his young son and his suffering in his studies and his sports activity for baseball, where he was suffering from several difficulties he and his wife began to encourage him,but their attempts failed,and when they checked their actions,they know that they had made a mistake because his son thought that he was incomplete and a failure,and it is linked to the strength of perspective because it shows us that there are two ways to make change : 1-through moral characteristics and personal ethics .In short,it is by following some behaviors that he vonsiders first aid,or palliatives that a person uses to relieve the pain of the essence of his principles that order him to do the opposite . 2-by changing the intellectual perspectives and he has likened the intellectual perspective ,as if you were holding a map of the city of (chicago)while you were in the city of (los angeles). And you want to move from one point to another.No matter how much you use the best technologies to reach your destination, you will never reach your destination .Because you have the wrong map.

    the movie I know is called "inside out" by Pete Docter
    This is the story of a young girl who left her life behind and moved to another city. She and her five core emotions, fear, anger, joy, disgust, and sadness, struggle to cope with their new life.
    It has to do with the power of perspective because it shows that we can't make the right decisions while overlooking other people's perspectives. And I have to say that we need to say how we feel without fear because it is reflected in our lives.

      (Detailed explanation of the movie) I watched the movie "Happy Feet 1" by George Miller. I liked this movie a lot and it made me feel confident and that no matter how bad you heard about you, everyone spreading these rumors is jealous of you. The film revolves around Mumble the little penguin. The characteristic that his father caused him to drop while he was in the egg, which causes delaying his hatching and then his inability to sing like the rest of his clan, which causes him a lot of problems because no female likes him for his abnormal voice. Even Gloria who loves him and the penguins who are hungry for lack of fish blame him for being a bad omen for her and banishing him from the tribe. Then Mumble decided that there was no point in living with his tribe and that he should search for the reason for the lack of fish with the realization that he might not return again and the reason for the lack of fish is that man goes and searches in the seas, but he found a giant ship, and he saw people catching fish, so they carried him with them , and they heard him dance with his clever stings, but they helped him and said that they would not fish from him. This area has helped the penguins survive the avalanche due to rising temperatures due to climate change and overcome this problem with unity. I benefited a lot from this film and from it that we can overcome the climate problem.

    the movie I know is called "boys state" by Amanda McBaine and Jesse Moss
    it's about 17-year-old boys from Texas who got together to build a representative government from scratch.
    it links to democracy because How some boys hold themselves as leaders, how other boys move to follow them, how the boys themselves and the group grow, and how they face the fast-paced challenges they face. It is interesting to see if it corresponds to. Roughly shape politics from scratch to reach elected leaders. A glimpse of this narrow cross-section view of a teenage boy, somehow reflects current American political culture.

    The movie I watched is Change the Weather with You by Makoto Shinkai. The movie is about a high school boy's friendship with a girl who can control the weather. The movie is about climate change and it is the best film that draws attention to the catastrophe of climate change.

    The movie i know is called "Ratatouille " by Brad Bird
    It's about a mouse who is inspired by a famous chef's quote which is "anyone can cook". This mouse didn't listen to his family about staying away from human. And he made a friendship with a young man and used him to cook.
    It links to the power of perspective because this mouse was affected by other's perspective and change the way how he thinks and made him special from others .I think if you truly believe in something and work hard for it ,others will definitely beileve in it .whoever he was.

    In the movie "The Cemetery of the Fireflies", the great Japanese artist Hayao Miyazaki depicts for us, with his wonderful drawings and narration, the tragedy of Sita and his sister Setko after the destruction of their home in the Allied bombing of Japan in World War II, and the death of their mother from her burns. Given that the chances of meeting are already limited, as imposed by short ages. For the very mature stages of fireflies, which sometimes do not exceed a few days, it becomes clear how much human light pollution has become threatening to dig mass graves for countless types of fireflies whose lights fascinated people for countless nights.
    We have nothing but to share with the little girl Setko - the heroine of the movie Cemetery of Fireflies - her sad thoughts, as she buries fireflies that did not survive until morning, she wonders: "Why do fireflies die so quickly?", while her eyes follow the last two fireflies gradually fading in the complete darkness.

    if I want to write about a story that I really loved it will be without question "naruto" by Masashi Kishimoto
    it's about a ninja kid that tries to prove himself in his village where everyone blames him for their beloved ones death because he has in his body the power of the creature who destroyed his village in the past and killed them. i think it links to the power of perspective because in light of all this hates this boy was about to give up and lose his way and become a devel but because of the perspective of one person who told him that you are a nice kid that affected him and he continued his way to become the chief of the village and he did it .he become the hero who saved the village and the entire world. I think this is what really happened in the real-life people could end their life because of others words or make this them the best like Addison's story when the school sends his mother a message that your son is an idiot by she told her son that the school said your son is too smart we cant go along with this great mind. Now Addison is one of the famous inventors of history.

    The Final Rainforest Film The film is about fairies who welcome a young man in their midst and the film is linked to climate change because the film taught us to defend the spirits of forest animals from his position as a lumberjack and a polluting force

    the movie I, ve watched is called frozen 2 by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck
    it's about two sisters from a royal family whose parents died in a mysterious way while looking for the reason for their elder's daughter's power. this princess who is now a queen begins to hear the voice of a mysterious melody calling her. Surprised, she responds to him, awakening her spirit and embarking on her quest to restore her old injustice.
    it links to climate protection because the kingdom has a threat of natural crisis due to one of the kings' decisions to use the natural power in his selfish motives. so what I want to say is that the main reason for global warming is our selfishness and the use of nature without thinking of the consequences.

    Flone Robinson Crusoe is a Japanese anime inspired by the Swiss novel The Robinson Family by Swiss writer Johann Rudolph. The events revolve around a girl named Flone who lives in Switzerland with her family consisting of Father Ernst, mother Anna, older brother Franz, and the youngest of the family, Jack, and their nanny, Marsh.

    One day, doctor Ernest Robinson receives a letter from a friend of his in Australia asking him to come to Australia and work there, because the country needs more doctors in addition to the good living conditions there. The family decided to move to Australia.

    Father Robinson treated the poor for free, while mother Anna was a housewife and assistant doctor, older brother Franz aspired to become a musician and young Jack.

    Just before the ship carrying the family arrived in Australia, there was a severe storm that destroyed the ship; The passengers were able to leave using lifeboats, but the Robinsons did not leave with them, but stayed on the semi-sinken ship off an island, so they could build a raft and transport some luggage on it and move to the island. The island formed their new home, so they adapted to living in unusual conditions, making their needs from salt, sugar and wax, in addition to being able to build a house and a field, domesticating animals, and being able to protect themselves from the attacks of predators. The family stayed for a while on the island until they were finally able to leave it and reach Australia safely thanks to the help of a sailor (Mr. Morton), whose ship was also wrecked off the island.
    I learned a lot from this anime. It is self-reliance and taking responsibility, no matter the circumstances. Of course, we all watched it when we were young. They had patience, endurance, trying and determination to do something until achieving it, no matter the difficulties (they always tried to build a ship to survive, but every time they failed until a captain helped them. )

    The Last Rainforest by Fern Galli
    The animated film Fern Galli (1992) is set in a mysterious Australian rainforest. It tells the story of a group of fairies who welcome a young lumberjack. The spirits and animals of the forest must defend their habitat against loggers and a polluting force known as the Hexas. Fern Galley provides a great example of environmental messaging directed mostly to children, and a plausible environmental tale voiced by a cast that includes Robin Williams, Tim Curry and Pamela Aldon, and the plant-loving comedy duo Chick and Chung.

    The film An Inconvenient Truth sheds light on Al Gore and his travels, in support of his efforts to educate the public about the seriousness of the climate crisis, where Gore says: "For quite some time, I have been working to indoctrinate people with this idea, but I feel that I failed to pass the message."

    The film revolves around what Gore discovered of information and predictions about climate change and his efforts to overcome his personal problems. Gore narrates the events that changed his view of the world.
    The film ends with Gore's call and his assertion that an appropriate initiative to be taken as soon as possible would reduce the consequences of global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and through continuous forestation to consume the quantities of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere. Gore calls on his viewers to learn the appropriate ways that facilitate They should help him in his efforts to protect the environment

    the movie I know is called DIVERGENT by Neil Burger
    it's talking about a girl called Tris who lives in a future world where society is divided into five factions. Each person must, when he becomes an adult, choose his faction and devote his life to it. Tris chooses those without fear, who above all strive for courage. But her initiation makes her discover that she's a die-hard and she can never get into one faction. Having warned her that she must hide her own status, Triss discovers an impending war that threatens all of her beloved ones.
    it's related to the power of perspective and democracy because we choose who we are and which side should we take .in addition, our perspectives reflect on the people around us and how her well and thoughts are what makes her so special.
