If everyone the planet lived my lifestyle, we would need 10.52 earths. When, I saw my result at first I thought it was an exaggeration, so I went back and redo the questionnaire two times because I couldn’t believe I was being extremely inconsiderate and super wasteful. What I was extremely shocked about was my percentage of carbon footprint, which is 91.4. Carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gasses produced to directly and indirectly support human activity, i.e... Petrol, gasoline, diesel, oil, etc…. If I had to reduce something, it would be the amount of energy I use. For example, turn off the lights when I'm not in the room, or disconnect chargers that aren’t being used. For instincts, when my laptop is fully charged not connected to the power outlet. Also, reduce the amount of water that I use. Not more 30-40 min showers and also not letting the water running while shaving or brushing my teeth.

Which, causes a panic, meanwhile Richard is recording everything going on in the control room, as Jack tries to fix the problem. It’s an important sequence because it sets up the plot of the entire film. If it wasn’t for this emotionally charged sequence, we wouldn’t be able to figure out what was the plot of the film. Even though there is no sound, it’s emotionally charged because we get plenty of close ups of the characters with a concerned facial expression with just the sound of the system and the blinking red lights.
Kimberly Wells is the female heroine who sees an opportunity and takes it, no matter the consequences. In the first stages of the film, she seems to be a very passive person, who does along to get along; she doesn’t want to lose her job, so she is reluctant to show the footage without her superior’s approval and is willing to lose her long term friendship...
