Young people are being arrested in Copenhagen because they were protesting. Their main motive was to save the rain forest. They believe that we should save the trees instead of cutting them and using them to graze animals in which they would sell to the U.S. for money. The movie “The 11TH Hour “is a documentary explaining ways and methods we should use when going by how to save the planet. On how the ecological problem, in the long term affects the horizon. They are both connected because the government could/should use the advice from the documentary to help when it comes to making a decision with what we are going to do with the rainforest.

young people are being arrested in coppenhagen because they are protesting global warming.As u said in class they are being hosed down like a civil right movement. the movie we watched showed the human impact on the environment and how our motives are focused on money. the video also showed that humans think the economy is more important than nature.

Many young people in Copenhagen are being arrested because they were protesting. The reason they were protesting was because they want to save trees, mainly rain forest.
The movie 11th Hour is talking about the ways people (us) can save the world and change it in time before it becomes worse than what it is. I also agree with Andre, when he said that in the video that humans care more about the economy than nature. I agree because everyone wants to be industrialized and to do that well, they have to careless about nature.

Young people are being arrested in Copenhagen because they are protesting to save the rain forest and global warming. They want us to save the trees from being cut down to help global warming. The movie The 11th Hour is telling us how we are trying to save the world and make it a more better and natural world. This connects to the article that we got in class because the movie is showing how we can make our earth healthier and probably have a longer life and why people are fighting to save it.

The young people in Copenhagen are being arrested because they are protesting in the fight to save the rain forest. Cutting down trees is not the way to go. They believe that we should save the tress instead of causing future environmental problems. The documentary, The 11th Hour, explained several procedures we can do in order to save the world from global warming.

The ecosystem collaese and the globel warming is a cause from us because we are being blind sided to the nature and that what we do around us (what we put in the world)is what we became to the world,thats what the global crisis we are now facing.To agree with Kendra that the young hundreds of perople are being arested in Copenhagen today is because they were protesting to the cutting down the trees (rain forest) to save them so that the farmer who owns that land to not make his product grow more to where he gets no money to where he sells them to us the U.S.

The youth in Copenhagen were arrested by the hundreds because they were protesting. They were protesting against the U.N. climate discussions, in hope for an agreement beneficial to the developing countries, and reducing the effects of global warming. The documentary, The 11th Hour, is related to this event in Copenhagen because they both address an environmental issue. The people in the documentary spoke of how the people are separating themselves from nature, and like Andre said, people care more for the economy. People care more for the convenience of machines, that they pay less attention to the other effects it has on the world, in this case, global warming. As Denzel said, there are people—similar to the protesters—that are fighting for a healthier world and for longer life.

People are being arrested in Copenhagen because they are protesting the way the countries are handling this climate crisis. The movie The 11th Hour is a documentary showing us how disconnected from the environment we have become, and how we don’t see how our actions affect it and how bad it really is. The movie also explains that we need to take action so we are able to survive on this planet.

In Copenhagen the young people are being arrested because they are trying to protect the rainforest. The movie we watched in class, the 11th hour, showed humans impact on nature. People have become so blinded by money and industrializing that they have lost sight of what's important. People need to realize that without nature things would be thrown off balance. The movie and the article we read in class are related because they both discuss methods we should take in saving our planet and making it healthier.

The young people were being arrested in Copenhagen because they were protesting about global warming. They wanted to save the trees. My fellow classmate Alexis explained to me, how in the movie the "11th hour" basically explained procedures on how to save global warming before it gets worst. The article and movie connects because both shows how there are some people who still cares about global warmings in its the young people protesting and the people that made time to make the documentary on how to help save the world that surrounds us.

Young people are being arrested in Copenhagen because there protesting cutting down trees and they are trying to prevent global warming. The movie the 11th show showed us what kind of impact cutting down trees has on the world. It also shows methods of had to stop are slow down the process. The movie also showed the causes of the global warming a it was our love of money. To get money in the past we had these factories to produce certain items and they gave of carbon dioxide, which harms the atmosphere. I feel since where in a time were there is more technology we can figure an alternative method and we need to do that a soon as possible.

The city of Copenhagen is being ran wild by young people because of the universal global warming crisis. These many young people feel so strongly about this topic that they are even willing to give up their freedom for the cause. They have been protesting the deforestation and the usage of certain resources that's killing mother nature. "The 11th Hour" documentary contained information about the carbon footprint that human beings are stomping into the earth. And the December 17,2009 "Two Days and Counting" article was about how the young people are responding to the deforestation. They are responding by raising hell in Copenhagen and the House by the Senate's environment committee are planning to stop the outrageous protesting by passing some environmental bills.

In Copenhagen many young people are being arrested by the hundreds because they are protesting how the government is dealing with the climate crisis, they want to save the rain forest. The Movie the 11'th hour talks about how we can help save the environment before its to late. It shows how we don't treat our planet right, and if we don't start soon, it might be too late.
The movie and the Article we read in class were commented because it was talking about how people form all around the world were going to meet in Copenhagen to decide how to save the planet and how to help it.

The reason why young people in Copenhagen are being arrested is because they are currently protesting global warming, to save the rain forest, and negative effects of peoples actions towards our economy, and Earth as a whole. They are fighting for more natural solutions or options to help decrease the causes of global warming. The movie "The 11th Hour" is connected to the youths' protesting, and rioting in Copenhagen because it is a documentary based on saving our Earth from global warming. It is my own personal belief that it is the younger generation that is fighting the efffects of global warming because we are going to be the one's that feel the effects of it. The older generation will already have come and gone around the time it really begins to cause serious bio harm, and ruin our resources, and Earth

The people in Copenhagen are being arrested becuase they are protesting global warming trying to save the rain forest. They are trying to prevent global warming from occuring getting other people to realize that what they are doing is wrong. Like what Andre said,"The movie "The 11th Hour" showed the human impact on the enviroment." It's showing us that all we care about is money and expanding to be industralized but not caring much about nature. They are connected because this movie could teach us that what were are doing to nature is going to harm us in a long run.

Young people are being arrested in Copenhagen because they were protesting. Young people were protesting against the way countries are handling the climate crisis. As Kendra said, "Their main motive was to save the rain forest," but as Andre stated, "humans think the economy is more important than nature." As one group is trying to save our environment another group is trying to form a better economy.
The movie "The 11th Hour" and the article we read in class is related because both things have to do with saving the rain forest. Like Kendra said, the government could and should use the documentary to help them make decisions when it comes to what we should do with the rain forest.

Many young people are being arrested in the city of Copenhagen because of the constant protesting to save the rain forest. Trees should be saved in order to help us breathe by producing oxygen. The movie The 11th Hour is related to the article because the people in the movie were informing us on things we can do to stop global warming as well as showed us how we made global warming exist in the first place.

So, after watching the 11th Hour, discussing the topic in class and on the blog, and reading about the article, it becomes clear that there is a barrier separating the ideologies of two different people. The voice of one side states that there is a war being waged on mother nature by us humans using & consuming its resources at an unnatural rate. The other side of the opinion states that there will always be hippies, so what can you do but ignore them.

The young people were not only arrested for their protest for the better treatment of the environment but also for bringing an important matter to surface. They challenged authority with strength and sincerity which was a threat to the order established in society. Their protest could have been so powerful that it border lined chaos and could have possibly made a big change.
“The 11th Hour” was a more “civil” and acceptable way of discussing the issue of the environment. The title is actually a phrase for something done at the last minute. It shows that we have already waited to long to talk about this topic. The film really discusses the issues that we like to avoid. Unfortunately, even with these constant warnings I don’t think the government or we as people are doing enough to change the state of the earth. It seems as if it were not an important topic at the moment because it hasn’t fully affected us yet. Are we just going to wait until something really bad happens? Or take serious action now?

People are being arrested in Copenhagen because they are protesting to protect the trees in the rain forest. The people protesting believe that cutting down trees is bad for the environment and we should save them instead of cutting them down. The movie The 11th Hour is a real eye opener. It shows us how the word is being harmed by the things that we humans do to it. It tells us about global warming and how it will effect our planet earth in the long run.

The young people main reason was to save global warming. they all believe that they should save the trees. they do not want the people to cut down the trees and using them for what want to use like to graze amimals and they will sell it in U.S money.
