The Falling Bear

Polar Bear from Plane Stupid on Vimeo.

Parental Guidance : Do not allow young or sensitive people to watch this video film.

Reassurance : No animals were hurt in the making of this film !

In a digitally composed film reminiscent of the destruction of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on the 11th September 2001 (as known as 9/11), Plane Stupid show polar bears dropping to their deaths from high rise buildings, with background aeroplane engine noise. Not Falling Man, but Falling Bear.

Global Warming isn’t really about polar bears any more, or rather not just, simply, merely, about polar bears any more. Actually, it’s probably not really about polar bears, at all, any more, because they’re effectively destined for extinction. We can’t save them. But we might be able to save some people, and some forests, if we act soon on cutting Carbon Emissions.

How can we cut Carbon Emissions ? One idea would be to close down the air companies and the Fossil Fuel industries and the car manufacturers. And re-tool them for Zero Carbon Energy and Zero Carbon Transport development.

Who has the authority to close down the airline industry, the automotive manufacturers and the Fossil Fuel corporations ? Partly, us. The less you personally fly, and the less you personally drive, and the less you use electricity, the larger the signal will be that the future of Energy and Transport has to be different from the past.

Goodbye, and goodnight, sweet, lost Falling Bear.
