no longer fearing the truth...

Tonight I finally went to see An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore's movie about climate change.

Have you seen this movie? It's one of the best presentations I've ever seen of scientific data-- about the unprecedented changes in climate in the past 35 years, how in the next 50 years we could lose a significant amount of the world's glaciers and with them many of the world's water sources, how a significant melt of the ice sheets in the antarctic and greenland are possible and could raise sea levels 20 feet, drowning the homes of 60 million people around the world.

scary shit... but, Al's last graph shows how we can reduce carbon emissions to lower than 1970 levels by just focusing on a few major changes, like moving toward renewable energies, focusing on local govt policies that fight global warming, and reducing personal carbon emissions-- see more here about what you can do.

i also found a link for Earth 911, a clearinghouse for recycling info.

why are we letting this happen? i want my grandkids to be able to see glacier national park like i just saw it...

it's bad already, not a lot of snow left.

all it takes to start is to change your lightbulbs...
