Have you seen this yet?
Preya’s post about warmer than normal weather in Hanoi this year reminded me that I haven’t written about this amazing film yet.
I will admit, I am very prone to attaching myself to causes – especially political issues – but this is so devestating, I honestly can’t believe the whole world isn’t panicking. Well, I’m pretty sure most of the developed world is panicking, except for the US…
Yes, I like Al Gore. I voted for him when he ran for President. But this goes far beyond liking someone. His presentation is so clear, rational, and powerful that it’s impossible to ignore.
Climate change is real. While we lived in Germany everyone was talking about the horrible summer floods in central Europe which devestated so many cities (and have now become an annual disaster). And then in 2003 (repeated again in 2006), the heat wave that killed thousands across Europe. Next came the tsunami here in S.E. Asia. And then the hurricane in New Orleans. How is it that the US is not paying attention yet?
I borrowed this DVD from a friend, but it’s going to be the first one I buy when I get home for the summer. If you haven’t seen it yet – go out and buy the DVD today. And then visit the site to see how you can make a difference. You can even calculate the impact you have on the environment. We only have the one planet, right? That’s got to be worth the $20 it’ll cost to buy the DVD.
