Summary:
By the year 2100, many scientists believe that the earth’s average temperature could rise
by as much as six degrees Celsius. In a compelling investigation, National Geographic leads
a degree-by-degree journey to explore what each rising—and critical—degree could mean
for the future of our people and planet. Through powerful filmmaking and intimate
profiles, this special illustrates how global warming has already affected the reefs of
Australia, the ice fields of Greenland, and the Amazonian rain forest. With a sobering look
at the effects of our world’s insatiable appetite for energy, Six Degrees Could Change the
World explains what’s real, what’s still controversial, and how existing technologies and
remedies could help dial back the global thermometer.

Discussion Questions:
 What did we just see? What stood out to you? What was missing? What did you
observe about your reactions and the reactions of those around you?
 How did you feel as you watched the film? What feelings stick out as positive ones?
Negative ones?
 What did you think of the film? Why do you think we watched it? How do you define
sustainability (Perpetual and cooperative environmental, social, and economic
systems)? What is the most important message that the film is intending to
communicate?
FAST FACTS
 What can you do with this new information? What action will you take, if any? What
messages will you now try to convey to others?
