The global temperature is predicted to increase by 1.5 degrees by 2040 – beyond which climate change would cause irreversible damage to our planet. That’s how far our world is from a climate catastrophe. The clock is ticking seemingly faster than ever before and at a crucial time like this, Sony BBC Earth brings forth a need of the hour film, ‘Climate Change – The Facts’. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, the documentary premieres on 7th March at 9PM only on Sony BBC Earth and unveils the whole truth behind the biggest danger facing mankind, from the impact of our actions to the solution.
After one of the hottest years on record, climatologists and meteorologists explain the effects of climate change on both, the human population and the natural world. Scientists forensically unpack the science behind the extreme weather conditions of recent years including unprecedented storms and catastrophic wildfires, as well as explain how the accelerating rate at which the world’s ice is melting is causing sea level rises, and how deforestation is exacerbating the problem of global warming by adding to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
In the last couple of years, the amount of talk around global warming and climate change has multiplied significantly with such diverse and divided opinions and facts being spoken about by scientists, environment conservationists, world leaders and media. However, much of it remains a mystery for the common man. The clock is ticking however not all hope is lost. The documentary looks at potential solutions, exploring the innovations, technology and actions the world’s governments and industries are taking to prevent further warming – and showcasing individuals who are creating change at grassroots levels.
‘Climate Change – The Facts’ premieres on 7th March at 9:00 pm only on Sony BBC Earth
