...might very well be non-existant within 50 years. Especially if you live on the East Coast, the West Coast, The Netherlands, Beijing...
This afternoon I saw 'An Inconvenient Truth' with my buddy Heather .
Had been meaning to see it eventually, but after a nudge from Chris (see his 18 June review) I decided to see it sooner than later. This movie blew me away.
It's amazing that Al Gore has been steadfastly hammering on this subject since the '70's. His scope and understanding of the issue is impressive and I truely hope that his status as the President-Who-Never-Was won't deter those who might otherwise be interested in this topic. As it was, the theatre in Bel-Mar had only 20 or so movie-goers when Heather and I were there.
If you want an in-depth review with facts and figures, check out Chris' site.
All I can say after seeing this is I am telling everyone I know that they MUST see this movie. Just told my parents (who NEVER go to the theatre) that they had to break with tradition and go out and see it...and take my siblings along with them!
Am also sending out an email to everyone in my address book (except for Chris and Heather!) urging them to see it as well. While it won't happen for awhile, my next vehicle WILL be a Hybrid, I already recycle and I''ve decided to reseach the alternative energy options in my area and see what I might be able to take advantage of.
Please don't read this and think 'I'm only one person, what can I do'? One person can do plenty. Just ask Al Gore.
