Rational Middle: Net Zero - Official Trailer
(soft ominous music)
- [Mark Finley] Where are we in our fight against climate change?
- [Dr. Richard Newell] We have levels of carbon dioxide that are
as high as they've been in two million years.
- [Dr. Virginia Burkett] We have changes in the distribution
of plants and animals,
increases in wildfire,
tide gauge records from around the world
showing acceleration of sea level rise.
- [Eric Drummond] We are just now at a point
where climate change is clearly impacting
virtually every segment of our population.
When you start to have that happen
then it becomes clear that it's a call to action.
- [Mark Finley] We are rapidly running out of space
to stop adding new greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere
if we want to limit the adverse consequences
before the social costs really take off.
- [Dr. Ramanan Krishnamoorti] We've been very, very slow to realize
the importance of global climate change.
What is going well is that there's an awareness
that is starting to build.
- [Dr. Michael Webber] The workforce is demanding a low carbon future.
Major industrial customers are requiring low carbon.
The investors are starting to demand it.
The markets have spoken and the markets have said
we're gonna make this change.
- [Eric Drummond] We will have to bring into the marketplace
technologies that aren't in existence now.
- [Todd Snitchler] Can it be done?
If we allow innovation to do what it does, yes.
- [Joy Ditto] A lot of different components are going to have
to come together, industries, support from government.
There has to be leadership.
- [Dr. Ramanan Krishnamoorti] We will have to start doing things at scale
and try out every one of these approaches.
We can't afford to get it wrong.
- [Dr. Isabella Gee] We can become a leader in net zero technologies
and in decarbonizing technologies.
And I think that we can grow our economy that way.
- [Dr. Virginia Burkett] We got ourselves in to this,
human ingenuity and working together,
I mean, that's the way out.
