Documentary Review: “Before the Flood”

The documentary covers essential aspects of global warming and climate change worldwide.

Whenever you try to have a conversation about climate change and its impacts on the environment, people will either try to wade off the discussion or show their lack of knowledge without hesitation. But the truth is that we have turned a blind eye to this situation for way too long. Now we are the ones to bear the consequences that are more enhanced and exponential. Politicians and media are not regarding it thoughtfully and thoroughly deny even accepting it as a global problem. We must act now, or it will be too late.

The documentary Before the flood was directed by Fisher Stevens and produced and narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, it was first released in theatres in early 2016; it was aired in national geographic accessible to all. Having a run time of one hour thirty-six minutes, the documentary covers essential hidden aspects of global warming and climate change worldwide.

The documentary is star-studded, famous figures like Pope, Barack Obama, and Elon Musk were interviewed. When the producer would be Leonardo DiCaprio, an Oscar winner, one can arrange an interview with such famous personalities. DiCaprio uses his stardom to bring the world’s prominent people to talk about climate change, a topic neglected worldwide.

D Caprio himself is an environmentalist and has studied the subject of climate change in depth. He and his co-creator Fisher Stevens invested three years in researching, interviewing, and creating this documentary. D Caprio traveled around the world and visited the sites most affected by climate change to make things clear for the viewer.

Before the flood is the most up-to-date documentary on climate change, after Al Gore’s “An inconvenient truth,” which came out about a decade ago, the title depicts a warning “before the flood” that if we fail to act on climate change, the consequences will be uncontrollable. Tesla’s Giga factory is claimed to form 500,000 electric vehicles by the end of 2020. This will reduce fossil fuel consumption to a great extent.

According to Elon Musk, there should be 100 Tesla Giga factories worldwide to reverse the chaos that is about to happen. To turn this into reality, if big companies join together and work in unison. To achieve this, the government should also set rules for sustainable energy and tax those overusing fossil fuels.

Before the flood is the most up-to-date documentary on climate change, after Al Gore’s “An inconvenient truth,” which came out about a decade ago, the title depicts a warning “before the flood” that if we fail to act on climate change, the consequences will be uncontrollable.

A renowned scientist Michael E Mann published a hockey stick graph showing the increase in Earth’s temperature. İt showed how in the past 100 years, greenhouse gases have increased due to industrialization and the use of fossil fuels which consequently raised the temperature of our planet.

Dr. Piers Sellers is one of the few people who has been privileged to witness the Earth from space. In a recent interview in New York Times, he revealed how being diagnosed with terminal cancer has increased his ability to sense climate change. Dr. Sellers says that hot places will face drought, seas will overflow, and ice caps will melt in explaining climate change. This will persistently happen if we keep on using fossil fuels. But this can be averted if we stop burning all sources at once. For a time, Earth will continue to warm up before cooling down.
A climate war begins when climate change deniers and fossil fuel investors attacked the scientist and the people who published the graph, claiming it to be controversial. Michael was called a fraud, attacked by Congressman, and was threatened for his life. 

Long story short, this documentary informs about the undeniable urgency to act for restricting climate change and create awareness. I will highly recommend this documentary to people who are keen to learn about the current climate situation. In some interviews, I have mentioned some exciting personalities like the (Pope and Barack Obama) left for the viewers. After watching this documentary, one becomes more vigilant about their carbon footprint.
