From Green Right Now Reports
Speaking at the AREDAY conference in Aspen, Colo., this past weekend, Avatar filmmaker James Cameron addressed a key point on many minds, that the U.S. appears in danger of slipping behind in the race to a clean energy economy — especially in the current vacuum of national leadership on the issue.
We have “only a handful of years” to begin an aggressive program to mitigate climate change, or we will pay a high price, economically and ecologically, Cameron said, invoking what should be a motivator for everyone: our children’s future.
While Cameron sounded pessimistic at times during his presentation to the American Renewable Energy Day (AREDAY) audience, he said the response to pro-environment Avatar, the top grossing film of all time at $2.7 billion worldwide (after No. 2 Titanic, Cameron’s other blockbuster), leaves him hopeful that people do want to reconnect with nature.
