The Aspire Potternewton Group present Keeping It Cool, a film they have made to highlight the climate emergency facing our species.
D/deaf viewers please note subtitles are not available as an option because the film includes a text-only narrative.
The scrolling text in the film reads as follows:
Humans need to change the way they consume and dispose of things they use every day, to prevent further damage to our environment. We hope this film inspires you to do your bit to keep the planet cool and rubbish-free.
150 million tons of plastic currently circulate our oceans. Every year an additional 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our seas.
The ocean is warming and the glaciers are melting. Sea levels will have risen 30cm by 2050.
Climate Change encompasses not only rising average temperatures but also extreme weather events, shifting wildlife populations and habitats, rising seas, and a range of other impacts. All of those changes are emerging as humans continue to add heat-trapping greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely on.
The sea levels are rising
Sea levels are rising
And we are rising too!
We have to heal the planet
Have to heal the planet
