Interest in the environment, concerns about pollution, and mankind's effects on the planet have proven to be a rich source of material for Hollywood. Several films over the last few decades have successfully used an environmental theme as the basis for dramatic story-telling.
Here is a list of several such films, some of which may be obscure, and some of which were filmed right here in Kern County. All of them touched on either air pollution, global warming, water pollution, man's interference with nature, or similar topics.
Have you seen all of these? Do you have a favorite that isn't listed here? Feel free to comment below. Not included were cartoon movies, like Fern Gully:The Last Rainforest, Wall-E, and Avatar.
