The film uses examples of people of all ages and various backgrounds around the world developing sustainable solutions in the face of a changing climate, from high school students who learned to make biodiesel from algae to farmers in Bangladesh growing different crops to adapt to sea level rise. Richard Somerville, a leading climate scientist based at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, serves as a guide to climate change basics in the film. “Burning fossil fuels has given us a lot of success, but it is also causing climate change. We must reduce emissions and provide renewable electric power to the developing world, and we need to do it soon,” he says.
