An Inconvenient Truth

I only have a moment before the whole morning rush begins, but I wanted to let you all know what has been eating away at me for a week or so... I recorded An Inconvenient Truth the other night and, since watching it, haven't been able to sleep or focus on much else. If you haven't seen it, there are several things in it that will make you shudder and others that will make you sad. But all of it points to one thing: We need to fix this planet now, or WE won't have a place to live. Not our grandchildren or great grandchildren... US. The information is ridiculous when you think about the fact that government officials and scientists and major corporations have had this hard data in their hands for decades and have done MINISCULE things to try and change it. They've even started conspiracies to make the general public think it was all a hoax! I know, I am obviously very late to the game, but I've been a bit busy having babies for 8 years, so give me a break. The fact is, I have seen it now, and I am nauseous...

Watch it. Once you've seen it, you won't be able to go back to the way you were. I'm in the process of trying to change the way we live. I'm sure the initial changes will be strange, but I honestly don't want to melt those polar caps any faster than they already are.
