11th Hour Reflection
Personally I believe that this movie was very informative and that more people should watch it. People don’t understand that what they do throughout there daily life can affect what is going to happen in the future. The problem is that people are to naive and that their too busy to realize it.

In the movie someone explains that the Earth has been changed through many years. The cause of this change is the human race. A lot of different pieces of land that were used for farming are now buildings. People want to make the world a better place for our future generations come but, how are we making the world better when were only making it worse.

People don’t understand that a lot of the factories that create our gasoline and oils burn chemicals that pollute our air. That’s why Los Angeles has really bad air pollution because the BP companies send out flares which also care chemicals that cause lung cancer and even asthma.

I work with an organization named People’s C.O.R.E (Community Organization for Reform and Empowerment) and what also discuss are issues that deal with Environmental Justice. We advocate for safer and healthier environment for our community. Especially since many of the industrial pollution is in low-income communities.

I enjoyed the topics and discussions that were brought on by the movie, but at the same time I felt like the movie was trying to make me feel guilty for not trying to make the world a better place. As an individual I already try my best to make sure to recycle, make sure no one around me liters. It’s hard knowing that the changes that I make wont really make a difference, When the bigger changes come from within our government and other countries government as well. The bright side was getting a well known actor like Leonardo DiCaprio to explain how our changes can possible make a difference, and at the same time he’s giving us hope to a better world.
