Six Degrees Could Change The World. Six Degrees is an extraordinary journey into our planet?s future, to explore the potential impacts of global warming degree-by-degree through six degrees Celsius over the next 100 years. As the mercury rises, what could the next century of climate change really look and feel like? Super-realistic computer graphics, stunning high definition imagery and the world s most remote and spectacular locations provide an unprecedented preview into a potentially catastrophic future. Filmed on five continents, Six Degrees tracks the world s top climate researchers and follows ranchers, photographers and everyday people to uncover the signs of climate trends affecting the planet today. Each potential degree of temperature rise might jeopardise life as we know it on Earth. From Greenland s ice sheet to tropical coral reefs, from Himalayan glaciers to the Amazon rainforest come chilling first hand accounts of climate change already underway and evidence of more to come as global warming impacts the lives of ordinary people. Six Degrees follows scientists on the frontlines - racing to understand the implications of climate change through sophisticated computer models, satellite measurements, ice core analyses and other methods. Over 50 stunning high definition computer graphics depict amazing science and dramatic climate forecasts if the planet s average temperature continues to rise over the next century. The planetary impact of each degree-change hits home with ultra-vivid CGI of cities, ecosystems and entire regions transformed. The journey of Six Degrees concludes with an examination of solutions, both great and small, that we can use to defuse the global warming time bomb. Narrated by Alec Baldwin.
