The best films on the topics of renewable energies, energy transition, nuclear power and fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas.
For 150 years we have been pumping vast amounts of concentrated fossil fuels into the atmosphere. With consequences. Burning fossil fuels like oil, coal and gas heats up the climate. At the same time, the extraction of oil, lignite and hard coal destroys huge areas of land.
We still satisfy our hunger for energy primarily through fossil fuels. But how do we get out of this situation? Only by switching to renewable energy sources such as sun, water, wind, etc. can we make the energy supply of the future sustainable. About time! Because our actions in this decade will decide the climate and the living conditions of the next millennia.
The films in the section show the effects of our emissions on the climate and the environment, but also solutions and ways to maintain a life-friendly climate in the future.
"Ice on Fire" shows, in addition to the current presentation of the climate crisis, exciting solutions, in particular reforestation, kelp cultivation, CO2 extraction (Climax Works from Zurich), tidal energy and artificial photosynthesis use.
The film shows the experiments thought up by motivated pioneers who are working for a sustainable world. The examples are not necessary transferable to the world system.
However, it must be mentioned that some statements are not correct, especially in regard to finance, that banks are represented as funds. This is a shortened and simplified explanation in terms of money economy and can lead to false interpretations. The mechanism that money will be "created" in the short term (100% temporary) is linked to the mechanics of lending, not the decision of a bank. In sum, a bank can only lend a part of what it has in deposits.
