An Inconvenient Truth

July 11th, 2006 at 07:17 am

I saw the movie, An Inconvenient Truth, last night. It's the one about global warming with Al Gore.

I strongly encourage, no - BEG - each and every one of you to see this movie. It may not be playing where you are right now - rent it when it comes out. It is worth the money.

I've been an environmentalist since I was a little kid...earth stickers everywhere, telling everyone to shut off the water...

It made me ill to see exactly how quickly we are destroying our home, our earth, and doing so little to change. Polar bears are drowning because the Arctic ice is melting so rapidly. Our CO2 levels are through the roof. Antarctica is breaking off in chunks. If Greenland melts entirely (which it is well on its way to doing), billions of people on our earth's coastlines will die. BILLIONS. Think Hurricane Katrina, a million times worse.

If you're a Democrat, Republican, Independent, hate Al Gore, love Al Gore, couldn't care less about Al Gore - it doesn't matter. See the movie. If you care about polar bears, baby birds, the child napping in the room next to you, the grass under your feet - see this movie. It's important!

    I'm going to try to see it this weekend while my kids are at my mother's. I don't care for the guy as a politician but as an environmentalist, he is top notch. I used to drive my parents crazy with recycling everything, but by the time the city offered curbside recycling it was already a habit. The city does it weekly. Out here in the boonies, we only have curbside recycling every two weeks and if you miss a pickup day you can start to drown in the cardboard. Which makes me think I buy way too much packaged food, but packaged in cardboard is better than packaged in shrink wrap.

    If people don't believe this isn't happening, then they aren't living on the same planet as I am. The weather swings in my county alone over the last 30 years have been strongly tending towards less and less rain and more and more sun. More snow and deeper cold in the winter. Plus all the other things like more frequent hurricanes and tornados. How can people hide from it and say it isn't there? Of course, people do that about credit card debt all the time. Maybe the mentality of the one leads to the other?
