“The Oscar® winning documentary that made global warming the number one topic of conversation.” –

Anyone who hasn’t watched this video should do so. Without commenting on the science (which some opponents have questioned), the documentary is well worth the hour and a half, and will get you thinking about the effects of our collective and massive carbon footprint on earth. Human population has reached the point where exponential growth is happening now. We are at 7 billion people worldwide. Some projections suggest 16 billion within the next 90 years. (Wiki Facts)

In the film, the main focus is on global warming, specifically how our overabundance of pollution is radically and adversely changing our world. The projections in the film are mind-boggling. Old habits die hard, but we need to change. Our population is simply growing too large, too fast. And Mother Nature cannot  absorb indefinitely all weight we’re heaping on her shoulders. Sometime she will shrug and say, “That’s it. That’s all I can carry.”

Imagine adding another adult to your house. Then add another. Then another. Keep adding. Eventually, you’ll say, “Man, this place stinks. It’s turned into a toxic dump. Nobody ever cleans up after themselves. The food evaporates immediately. And all the plants have died.”
