I’m a big weather geek, so in this post I am sharing the best global warming movies that you can watch online. You can watch them easily through live streaming on Amazon. Below are my top choices and a bit of information about each of them.
Before the Flood
This documentary directed by Fisher Stevens features Leonardo DiCaprio was released on October 21, 2016 in the US. The movie shows how climate change dramatically changes the world. And you don’t have to go far to see and feel the difference and haunts of changing climate.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio uses his clout and meets with scientists, activists, and world leaders. He discusses with them that include former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and former US State Secretary John Kerry the dangers of climate change and finds possible solutions.
In this 1h and 36 minutes length documentary film, the actor hopes that this will inspire climate action.
This Leonardo DiCaprio global warming movie shed light on other real issues, and anyone who watches it will somehow realize the grave danger this world is facing now. It also shares examples of simple changes everyone can make to have effective change.
An Inconvenient Truth
This documentary shows how global warming affects our lives and our inaction. Former US Vice President Al Gore shares his knowledge of the big problem in our time and his commitment to reverse the impact of global climate change. Filmmaker and Director Davis Guggenheim weave his cinematic ingenuity by following the former presidential candidate on the later’s lectures that raise public awareness of global warming dangers and what people need to do to curb the destruction of the environment.
Though the 1h and 58 minutes documentary mix science, politics, social implications of climate change in its presentation, it’s an excellent movie to watch. A must see for anyone who loves the Earth and the environment he or she lives.
Furthermore, Al Gore produces a follow-up to his award-winning 2006 documentary. Watch the official trailer the “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017)” from Paramount Pictures.
The Age of Stupid
This low-budget but creatively directed documentary movie is showcasing how people continue sitting and staring while Earth burns. The 2009 British documentary film is an eye-opener for humankind’s stupidity that rage from generation to generation. The lead actor, Pete Postlethwaite, plays the last guy alive in a post-apocalyptic, climate-fried world, shares what people have done to destruct the Earth through news clips and interviews which taken from the first decade of the 21st century. It shows us the wrath of Nature on vengeance.
Though this 1h and 32 minutes do not have more focus and weight compared to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, it still rings the bell on the truth that we continue ignoring the environmental warning signs. And this will inspire us to take action to stop the degradation of the environment.
The 11th Hour
The 1h 35m drama documentary is another Leonardo DiCaprio global warming movie which released in the US on August 17, 2007.
In this, the Academy Award-winning actor presents more than 50 of the world’s leading thinkers, leaders, and scientists of our time. He shares insights and revelations from the English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author Stephen William Hawking to American environmentalist, entrepreneur, author, and activist Paul Gerard Hawken, to former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai, and much more.
These specialists reveal how our actions dramatically destruct the Earth’s ecosystem and share practical solutions to restore it or if not stop the damage and save the planet from further destruction.
