An Unfortunate Truth

emailI received an email from my brother Steve yesterday afternoon. Here it is.

If you guys don't already know about peekvid.com, you should check it out. You can stream recent releases on your computer and the quality is not bad at all. I just watched An Inconvenient Truth and it's alarming!

Mike, use the power of your website to tell everyone to watch and become consciously aware. It's also fresh right now in the wake of that environmental report. Something must be done and must be done soon.

As instructed, I headed over to peekvid.com and watched An Inconvenient Truth. Steve's right, it's alarming and something must be done and the sooner the better.

It's amazing how controversial this topic is. People of a certain political slant are quick to deny the cause and effects of global warming. This issue has become so politicized there's a sense that acknowledging this inconvenient truth is a kin to seeking socialist reform. Stripping away the political angles and staring at the facts reveals something deeply disturbing. The long-awaited report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said global warming is "unequivocal," "very likely" man-made and will "continue for centuries", findings bleaker than its last report in 2001.

You all have homework. Toronto Mike insists you watch this film and report back here with your feelings on the subject.

I beat u to it. I had already been a regular visitor of this site - not for the movies but for the tv shows like Joey and Farscape. It is really cool.
