I did really like the movie
A fine Piece of Celluloid
This was a great film that did enlighten many people of the problems plaguing the environment we live in. We watched the movie in my Environmental Science class one day, and I must say, I cried while watching it. It was sad to see how drastically we have been influencing our world in such a negative way.
After seeing the movie, I decided to buy it, and did so to support the cause.
I have since tried my best to participate in all the world saving green movements, but I do think it has turned into a trend rather than a real attempt to make a positive difference. Barry's Response

It's not necessary for a logical policymaker to oppose the statement outright.
It might be interesting to discuss this message with him if your stance on environmental issues has traditionally been more conservative, emphasizing market-based solutions.
I might appreciate the film's impact on raising awareness about environmental issues if I were responding to this statement. However, you might argue that addressing these issues requires a balanced approach that takes into account economic factors, job creation, and technological innovation.
The best statements would promote policies that foster environmental stewardship and economic growth at the same time. A lot of environmental problems can be solved with private-sector initiatives and technological advancements.
In essence, I agree with environmental awareness, but advocate for a more conservative approach to finding solutions.
