Impact of Global Warming

Impact of Global Warming

At the time I originally saw the movie An Inconvenient Truth, I was appalled at what had become of the earth, from the increase on CO2 in the ice, to melting ice caps and drowning polar bears. I must say now, however, several years later, I am apathetic to the film.

Why does Al Gore fly around in HIS PRIVATE JET wasting fuel to talk about the environment? Why not take a train? or something more fuel efficient? I have read about the research going into genetically fart-less cows (yes, fart-less cows), but wouldn't it be easier just not to eat them and be a vegan? Al Gore isn't.
When you eat a piece of corn, you get 100% of the value of that corn. When you eat a cow, you only get 10% of the value of the corn it ate.

I found the review of this film simple in that the author doesn't or couldn't make long or interesting sentences. The sentences are short and simple minded. They are of a less than professional quality. It was just alright.

I would not explore this website further. I have a wide screen monitor, and this website was only formatted for a standard screen. On my screen, everything is squished to the left.

Barry's Response - The film, like this website, is designed to appeal to a broad set of members in the each potential audience. That has enabled both to become great successes. More power to Gore; it worked for him. He voiced these scientific principles to a public who were completely unaware of them, and we are now seeing some benefits from that action.

Thank you, Cloei, for bringing this point out of me.

everything was too good

Apathy is not an option
by: Bentham

If you object to Al Gore using a jet to get around then tell him. You could suggest he use scheduled commercial flights to reduce his carbon footprint. Personally, I think he should stay in one place and webcast a lot.

The whole argument about cows and veganism is a red herring. Vegan farming can be just as energy intensive as carnivorous farming. It is not the end product but how you get there. And, apathy gets you nowhere.
