Yann Arthus-Bertrand:  Captures Fragile Earth in Wide Angle

“We dont want to believe what we know.”

People don’t know how much carbon they are producing. Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s job is to show the impact humans have on out planet. But the problem is that “we dont want to believe that we know”.

We use 3 times more oil a year then we find every year. Ice is melting, over hunting fish, 1/2 of worlds rainforest is gone. Although we know what we are doing to the earth and how we are creating our future and we are doing to the earth and how we are creating our future and we are not doing anything to change. 5,000 interview videos were really interesting. They talked about all kinds of things from love, family, and war. Its amazing how many storied there are in the world. Everyone has their own story. “Home” is about the planet and how rapidly it is changing.

Watching this video I am more aware of how people are hurting the planet. People are aware and do not care or they are not aware of how to help the planet. If you watch this video you can learn how to use less carbon and you may even be able to change your lifestyle to help the planet.
