Part 5: Nuclear waste, neurological diseases, ground water poisoning, ocean dead zones, mustard gas dumping
The recent blockbuster movie, "Avatar", by the enigmatic director James Cameron, touched a lot of environmental nerves across America and hopefully, the planet. Moviegoers enjoyed an amazing futuristic world with similar dramas playing out across America and around our globe in 2010.
His movie, set in 2154, depicted a planet named Pandora, where the 10 foot tall, blue-colored aborigines named Na'vi, lived in perfect harmony with the natural world. Unfortunately for them, their planet possessed a rare mineral, "unobtainium" that military pirates, from a dying planet called Earth, came to plunder.
Humans had so desecrated their planet Earth that it struggled to maintain its environment to sustain life. Ironically, the human army decided to trample the rights of the aborigines--by stealing the rare metal. As one of the actors, Sigourney Weaver insisted that everything on Pandora connected to a life "energy' and to disrupt it would bring destruction to all life.
