2012

2012 is a sci fi movie starring John Cusack. Its about the earth ending and climate change. Here they talk about the unsteady globe and the temperatures that are rising. People are forced to evacuate. There is a lot of panic.

There’s tsunamis and earthquakes and buildings falling. Its a movie about survival of the fittest and I thought it would be befitting to talk about it here since climate change is on the agenda. The movie goes for two hours and thirty minutes.

It starts off in California where Jackson (John Curtis) is a non fiction writer. He just got his first book published and people are buying it. He is divorced and Kate (Amanda Peet) is living with this surgeon Gordon who is Kate’s new boyfriend. He seems a bit self centred always talking about Jackson and putting him down. There are lots of references to dying.

The earth’s core moves a lot, but in the end most of the people survived as they were evacuated on these huge giant ships and aircraft.

So what can we learn from this movie?

  • Don’t use energy unneccessarily
  • Don’t buy single plastic things
  • We should worry about the factories that use up a lot of the earth’s resources to produce things- a lot of the fumes from the factories destroy the ozone layer
  • We should cycle, walk or use public transport more often instead of our cars- diesel fumes from the cars destroy the ozone layer
