Presented by filmmaker and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence James Cameron and the Avatar Alliance Foundation, What Would the Ocean Say? debuted at the United Nations in the Hall of the General Assembly to mark the occasion of World Oceans Day on June 8th as part of the programming for the first-ever United Nations Ocean Conference.Video: What Would The Ocean Say?Distributed online by National Geographic, the short film is narrated by Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy actress Zoe Saldana and features stunning ocean imagery generously donated by some of the world’s preeminent marine documentarians.The short film outlines the significant challenges the world’s oceans face: global warming, plastic pollution, overfishing, ocean acidification and more. But it also introduces a new generation of ocean activists — researchers, conservationists, teachers, filmmakers — working on the front lines to protect and preserve the planet’s critical resource.Following the film’s debut at the UN, a second segment aired that featured eight young leaders focused on ocean science, education and conservation and associated with National Geographic, The Explorers Club, OpenROV — OpenExplorer and The Resolution Project. Consistent with the themes of the UN Ocean Conference, which was aimed at achieving Sustainable Goal 14, the “Ocean Goal,” this next generation of ocean champions underscored the need to take action on oceans through a collective statement: “If not me, then who? If not now, then when? It starts here. It starts now.”The film is executive produced by James Cameron and Maria Wilhelm and was made possible by collaboration from contributors: Oceans, a Jacques Perrin and Galatée Films production; Planet Ocean, a Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot film; March of the Penguins by Bonne Pioche Productions and Luc Jacquet; MacGillivray Freeman Films; Alucia Productions; National Geographic; Howard Hall Productions; Dave Hannan; the Plastic Oceans Foundation; Years of Living Dangerously; TBA21-Academy.The following list of institutions additionally supported the production: Disneynature; Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution; The Explorers Club; OpenROV – OpenExplorer; The Resolution Project.

Toyota Motor Corp’s Executive Vice President Mitsuhisa Kato speaks in front of the company’s fuel cell vehicle (FCV) concept car at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show in Tokyo November 20, 2013. Toyota and Honda are taking the lead in this largely untested market.Toyota’s FCV Concept is inching closer to reality and the car which has been the talk of the town is all set to dazzle at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on 6 January. The latest FCV which made its first appearance at the recently concluded 2013 Tokyo Motor Show is expected to go into production in 2015.The FCV; a hydrogen fuel-cell passenger vehicle from the renowned auto maker Toyota, will draw power from its fuel-cell stack and two 70 MPa high-pressure hydrogen tanks beneath the specially-crafted body. It will run on the compressed hydrogen power, which is a clear alternative to the usual gasoline-powered and plug-in cars, but the success of the hydrogen fuel-cell concept is still debated. In a world where the fossil fuel is running out, fuel-cell cars seem to be the only way. Toyota Motor Corp’s FCV concept car is seen at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show in Tokyo November 20, 2013. Toyota wants this on the road by 2015.(Reuters)Although Hydrogen vehicles have been in news for a while now and many companies have been considering the idea, the concept has been tantalizing because of the many hurdles. Now companies like Toyota, Hyundai and Honda could clear the stumbling blocks and introduce the all-new hydrogen cars into the auto world.When Toyota FCV becomes a reality, the car will rival the Honda FCEV concept, which is also expected to mark its entry in 2015. But road to success is not straight and problems like supply of hydrogen still need to be addressed more seriously. The vehicle is also likely to boast a high price tag.Toyota Motor Corp’s FCV concept car is seen at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show in Tokyo November 20, 2013.
