Really Loved it
I took my husband and teenage son, no small feat for a documentary at the theatre. It was great to see all the evidence in one setting instead of bits and pieces like on the news (if they talk about it at all).
We cannot hear too much about this, otherwise, our attention spans being as short as they are, we very well may ignore the problem until there is nothing we can do about it and many, many people will suffer.Barry's Response
- That reminds me of the global warming public service announcement of several years ago where the frog sits still under slowly increasing temperatures, but is capable of reacting to sudden changes.
Watch it here. Thanks for your input, Annie.
Does sudden climate change occur?
Depends how you define it. If sudden means a measurable difference over the span of a generation or so (few decades), then we're in the midst of one, the data often presented is a reliable indicator. Or is sudden to be applied to the often temporary changes induced by a major event such as a volcano? One that may occur over a period of days or less. Something to think about.Search

So let's talk about global warming, shall we?
It's become quite the buzzword, hasn't it? Unambiguous evidence? That's another story, or should I say, a tall tale.
Some people say the planet is warming up faster than a microwave burrito, and they've got graphs and charts to prove it! What about graphs and charts?
It's just fancy talk for "look at these squiggly lines!"
I'm all for taking care of our planet, don't get me wrong. It's the only one we've got, right? Don't jump to conclusions like a kangaroo on caffeine.
What's the evidence? Honestly, I've seen more proof Elvis is still alive than I have for some of these global warming claims. Have you ever noticed how they call it "climate change" now? They're covered whether it's hot or cold!
Let's not forget those pesky polar bears. Global warming always uses them as poster kids. Last time I checked, polar bears don't have weather stations! We can't tell if it's getting warmer or if they just need a good wash.
Now, I'm not saying we should just ignore the environment and throw trash out of cars like it's a parade, but let's not go overboard with the doom and gloom. I've heard about the apocalypse for years, and I still have canned beans in the basement!
Is there unambiguous evidence of global warming? I'll let the experts and scientists debate that. In the meantime, I'm enjoying my BBQ and hoping Mother Nature's got a sense of humor because, hey, we could all use a good laugh!
