If you have Netflix, here’s a great documentary you might want to check out. It’s called Chasing Coral. It’s about how global warming is causing much of the coral in the ocean to be bleached. I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. It was very well done and kept my attention.
One of the most powerful analogies that I recall from the film was related to temperature and how sensitive the living coral is as it’s exposed to 1 to 2 degrees of warming. It makes sense in terms of people and how even if we have a temperature 2 degrees above normal, it still affects us.
It nails the point that we need to reverse global warming as soon as possible. The fever will keep getting worse and worse at the rate we’re increasing each day and year.
The documentary also asks the question, if we don’t have the courage to save the coral reefs, will we have the courage to save other ecosystems that may be affected by increased global temperature?
If you end up watching it, let me know what you thought.
