Dire Climate Forecast Inspires Upbeat Film About Solutions For a Warmer ‘Tomorrow’

In 2012, UC Berkeley paleontologist Anthony Barnosky and 20 co-authors published a dire paper warning that Earth’s climate is approaching a tipping point that could irrevocably drive the planet into a scary and uncertain future.

That paper had such a strong impact on French actress and director Mélanie Laurent, who was then pregnant, that she teamed up with filmmaker Cyril Dion to look for a positive way to tell this story. Their movie, “Demain” – French for tomorrow – premiered Dec. 1 in Paris during the COP21 climate summit, which itself could be a turning point in national commitments to cutting greenhouse gases and halting changes to Earth’s ecosystem short of a tipping point.
