    “We know exactly what needs to be done.  There’s no technological barrier in the way, there’s no economic barrier in the way, we can afford to do what needs to be done.  All that stands in the way is a lack of political will… “
    George Monbiot

    “We should be looking at cuts of at least 40% in carbon emissions in the wealthy countries by 2020, and be fully decarbonised, i.e. emitting no carbon by 2030.”

    “The great injustice of climate change is that those who have contributed nothing to its genesis, will suffer the most from its consequences.”

    “2 Degrees is a masterpiece that depicts the story of the political battle for action on Climate Change, and shows ordinary people who rise to the occasion to show the world that as a united force against governments, we have the power to create a sustainable, healthy, just planet. Absolutely stunning documentary”
    Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez, Earth Guardians.

    “2 Degrees makes a compelling case for all of us to get serious about global warming. It’s time to stop pretending that somehow the world will muddle through. It won’t, and this film shows why.”
    Clive Hamilton

Climate Justice or Climate Change!

As the world waits in hope for a new dawn on climate change, 2 Degrees reveals the chaotic failure of the UN negotiations in Copenhagen. It becomes chillingly clear that we cannot wait for governments to lead the way. So if commitment to act won’t come from above, perhaps the voices and actions of communities will bring the revolution that is needed. 2 Degrees takes to the streets of Port Augusta, a small Australian town, and follows the passionate efforts to replace the coal fired power stations with solar thermal power.

If we don’t understand the lessons from Copenhagen, we are doomed to repeat them in 2015, when the world body meets once more in Paris to adopt a legally binding climate agreement. From the award‐winning producer of The Burning Season and The Man who Stole my Mother’s Face2 Degrees explores climate change through the prism of climate justice. While An Inconvenient Truth alerted us to the problem of climate change, 2 Degrees provides a gripping examination of the human costs, followed by the much welcomed emergence of community-led solutions, culminating in an inspiring call to action for audiences around the world.
