El Niño - Vision of the FuturePosted: 05 Feb 2001
El Niño is the name of a natural phenomenon found around the Pacific Ocean region. A series of heat movements, El Niño is a seasonal alteration of the ocean atmosphere system, effecting rain patterns and temperature, especially off the shores of Equador and Peru.
El Niño - A Vision of the Future reports that this phenomena has become more frequent in the 1990s than ever before, resulting in catastrophic floods and fires. The cost of the damage has exceeded several hundred millions of dollars, the human cost is incalculable.
The film argues that a misguided concept of progress leading to global warming is to blame and unless we control carbon dioxide emissions, El Niño is a chilling example of what is to come all over the world.
