The declared objective of international climate policy is to limit the temperature rise to 2°degrees Celsius. However, scientists predict that a temperature rise of 1.5 degrees will already lead to irreversible damage to ecosystems as well as terrestrial and marine areas.
'1.5 - Stay Alive' by Spanish film-maker Lucian Segura takes a closer look at the issue by the example of the Caribbean region. Segura describes the far-reaching consequences global warming will have for biodiversity, fish stocks, coastal protection and the survival of Caribbean coral reefs. Another focus is on the impact that climate change will have on the people living on the islands and along the Caribbean coastlines, and whose livelihoods are increasingly lost.
The one hour long film in English-language was co-funded by Blue Solutions, a global project of Germany's Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety' IKI.
