"But when I walk by the peasants' woods which I have saved from cutting down, or when I hear the rustling of the young copse planted by my own hands, I realise that the climate is to some extent in my power, and that if in a thousand years man is to be happy I too shall have had some small hand in it." Anton Chekhov, Uncle Vanya

Cognitive dissonance

"Living with this kind of cognitive dissonance is simply part of being alive at this jarring moment in history, when a crisis we have been studiously ignoring is hitting us in the face– and yet we are doubling down on the stuff that is causing the crisis in the first place." ― Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate

"Because, underneath all of this is the real truth we have been avoiding: climate change isn't an "issue" to add to the list of things to worry about, next to health care and taxes. It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message—spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions—telling us that we need an entirely new economic model and a new way of sharing this planet. Telling us that we need to evolve." ― Naomi Klein

These thematic films cover Nature Conservation, Climate Change, Ecosystems & Biodiversity, Deforestation, Water Risks, Health & Animal Rights.

Short films

"...if everyone focused their love, care, and commitment to protecting and regenerating their local places, while respecting the local places of others, then a side effect would be the resolution of the climate crisis." ― Charles Eisenstein, Climate: A New Story

These 12 short films also include Indian short film by the acclaimed Indian National Award Winning Director Padmashree Nila Madhab Panda, that is included in the anthology. It is based on the vagaries of the conflict areas between humanity and wild animals, and touches upon serious and urgent topics like protection of elephant corridors and preserving Nature, Biodiversity and Habitats. The last association of GAIL with Art for the World was for an award winning film on environmental awareness, entitled INTERDEPENDENCE, which World Premiered at Rome and was viewed by over 500 million people across continents including India in the years 2019-2021. GAIL has been constantly striving to create awareness against Climate Change, Air Pollution and spreading the tenets of Sustainability in individual and corporate lifestyles.

Awaeness about climate change

"When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: if you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren't pessimistic, you don't understand the data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth and the lives of the poor, and you aren't optimistic, you haven't got a pulse." ― Martin Keogh, Hope Beneath Our Feet: Restoring Our Place in the Natural World

GAIL has been constantly striving to create awareness against Climate Change, Air Pollution and spreading the tenets of Sustainability in individual and corporate lifestyles.

"We spent a few hours struggling to come up with better explanations, but each suggestion was shot down almost as soon as it was made. The suggestions became wilder, eventually to the point of silliness." ― Donald G. Firesmith, What Lurks Below

Future generations will look back at the time we are living in now. The kind of future they look from, and the story they tell about our period, will be shaped by choices we make in our lifetimes. The most telling choice of all may well be the story we live from and see ourselves participating in. It sets the context of our lives in a way that influences all our other decisions. In choosing our story, we not only cast our vote of influence over the kind of world future generations inherit, but we also affect our own lives in the here and now. When we find a good story and fully give ourselves to it, that story can act through us, breathing new life into everything we do. When we move in a direction that touches our heart, we add to the momentum of deeper purpose that makes us feel more alive. A great story and a satisfying life share a vital element: a compelling plot that moves toward meaningful goals, where what is at stake is far larger than our personal gains and losses. The Great Turning is such a story." ― Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone ta

"Woe to any climate denier who called climate change a hoax when she was nearby." ― Donald G. Firesmith, What Lurks Below

"Adults keep saying: "We owe it to the young people to give them hope." But I don't want your hope. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then I want you to act. I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is." ― Greta Thunberg, No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference

"Entomologist Dr. Ovid Byron speaking to television journalist, Tina, who says, re: global warming, "Scientists of course are in disagreement about whether this is happening and whether humans have a role." He replies: "The Arctic is genuinely collapsing. Scientists used to call these things the canary in the mine. What they say now is, The canary is dead. We are at the top of Niagara Falls, Tina, in a canoe. There is an image for your viewers. We got here by drifting, but we cannot turn around for a lazy paddle back when you finally stop pissing around. We have arrived at the point of an audible roar. Does it strike you as a good time to debate the existence of the falls?" ― Barbara Kingsolver, Flight Behavio

Rhetric on climate

"Rhetoric often fails us on climate because the only factually appropriate language is of a kind we've been trained, by a bouyant culture of sunny-side-up optimism, to dismiss categorically as hyperbole. Here, the facts are hysterical, and the dimensions of the drama that will play out between those poles, incomprehensibly large. Large enough to enclose not just present day humanity but all of our possible futures as well." ― David Wallace-Wells, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming
