SAO PAULO – Film director James Cameron says there is an urgency to protect the environment and says that climate change will affect rich and poor alike.
Cameron says the success of his movie “Avatar” is proof that the world is ready to take the necessary actions to stop climate change and other environmental problems that could lead to global tragedies.
The director also mentions his Oscar-winning movie “Titanic,” noting that passengers from all classes died when the ship sank. He says everyone will suffer because of climate change.
Cameron made his comments at an international sustainability forum in the Brazilian Amazon city of Manaus. The comments were reproduced in a press release by organizers late Saturday.
