The images of water rising over cities throughout the world were simply insane to watch. The disappearances of huge lakes, snowcapped mountains, rivers, etc made me want to cry. At the end of the film, where it was showed that using the technology we have we could put levels back to where they were in the 70s and we were doing nothing made me so upset and frustrated that I simply didn’t know where to vent my anger.
I began to think of where our country would be if the 2000 election hadn’t been stolen. I have thought of this before, of course, but not to such an extent. Instead of being scorned by the rest of the globe, America may have had a chance to better itself and, as a result, the entire world’s situation with Gore leading the charge. Instead of that, we have a war-mongering dolt sitting in the white house. I also had to wonder that with Gore out of politics, who will take up the cause of the environment in the Senate and the Congress. Without many passionate people in Washington the growing awareness matters very little. As was said in the movie, the issue will not be important until people pressure their representatives to take a stand. When will that be?
When Gore talked about the distortion of the media surrounding the issues related to global warming I was not surprised but I was dismayed. People tend to be stupid and listen to what they want to listen to. If the media keeps telling them that global warming is a theory, they can continue to ignore it. All the sensible people know that it is fact. You don’t even need to be a scientist. You don’t even need to see pictures of glaciers melting. All you need to do is look at the thermostat and take a walk outside. It is the middle of December and people in Chicago are walking around without hats and gloves. That is a serious problem. I used to wonder if I remembered childhood winters as worse than they really were. Winter now in Minneapolis is nothing like it used to be. I remember school being closed for cold. Not for snow but simply because it was too cold to go outside. Granted I don’t live there anymore but the time I spend there in the winters just isn’t all that bad. It’s the middle of December in Chicago and there was a few inches of snow for a few days. It makes no sense. This happens and people continue to tell us that global warming is a theory?
I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir here. I would guess that anyone who reads this already knows. I just had to rant a little bit. Now, when people ask me what the scariest movie I have ever seen is, I don’t have to think about it. Move over original Amityville Horror (not that new piece of shit that couldn’t scare a mouse), An Inconvenient Truth has stolen your place.
Now to reveal another truth, the unguessed songs.
1. Tell em I’m driving and it’s all right turning on this wheel turning on headlights. Driving, PJ Harvey
2. In the right light study becomes insight but the system that dissed us teaches us to read and write. Take the Power Back, Rage Against the Machine
After all the jacks are in the boxes and the clowns have all gone to bed. The Wind Cries Mary, Jimi Hendirx (come on people that was so incredibly easy)
So I was doing my blogsurfing thing and saw a new quiz. It was the what book are you quiz. I love books and I love quizzes so I was super excited for this one. I am.......
Wait for it
by James Joyce
Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but compared to what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense. What people do understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.
