Don't watch this video...

...if you want to sleep tonight.

Very appropriate for the season. H/T Frank.

Awesome video! Does a really good job at showing us the big picture that the issues of climate change are not just environmental.

This is what my secular job is about!! :)

I didn't believe your warning, but it was correct. Wow! That was fabulous and a little bit hopeful. I rekon we need a buy nothing chart and let's not buy food products that come in packaging that we can't recycle.

Once Thomas Berry was approached by a distraught man just after he had delivered one of his talks on how our arrogant species is destroying our planet (he uses gentler words than I do). The guy was freaking out over the sheer immensity of the work that needs to be done and Berry simply said - find one thing and do it. We are so used to thinking that the only thing that really counts is a huge effort, and so often we are prevented from doing anything at all because we do not value little things. Do not the scriptures tell us something about small beginnings? Start a revolution of small beginnings Jessica, those always build and better yet they have a good chance of sticking and even encouraging others to start small things too.

Some may have noticed that there is a YouTube critique of this video, pointing out some statistical errors (helpfully) and going on to make more tenuous (and sometimes bizarre) critiques. The critique and a reply to that critique are here.
