Folks, I’ve been saying that if you haven’t already, you NEED to see An Inconvenient Truth. If it doesn’t change the way you look at the world, then you probably have no heart. (Grin!) I also previously reported that Gore had been Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize. This is not just because he made a [...]
In line with the environmental topics of earlier in the week, I came across this interesting little cartoon that addresses the issue of “action and reaction” when it comes to our personal habits. The film does a good job of demonstrating how everything is interrelated while also delivering hope for the future. Enjoy…
I came across this great little video called “A Beginner’s Guide to Giving a Damn About Climate Change”. I think it was somehow associated with the Live Earth event. Anyway, the premise of the video is things you can do without actually changing the way you live your life. Despite the use of the word [...]
I think by now everyone knows what side of the environmental debate I’m on. And I’m aware that I have friends and relatives that still have differing opinions on the matter.

On March 21st Al Gore will be testifying before congress about the topic and he has almost 300,000 digital signatures he’s taking with him. You can add your name to the list in about 30 [...]
Will Ferrell spoofs George W. Bush on a TBS special in support of StopGlobalWarming.org. As usual Will Ferrell had me laughing out loud a couple of times. My favorite quote: “Global warming is an issue my administration is very concerned about. Deeply. Deeply, in a deep kind of concerned way. I start my day and [...]
From the American Society for Microbiology… You know how we’ve been hearing for years that a huge impact probably wiped out the dinosaurs? Well, now it seems there is evidence to suggest that those silly scientists were off by a few hundred thousand years! Gerta Keller of Princeton University claims that it was more likely [...]
