    An Inconvenient Truth

    Testimonials From KeelyNet News: 05/20/06 - Gore's Film on Warming
    'An Inconvenient Truth,' an incredible documentary about Al Gore's work to raise awareness about global warming. It opens May 24. It's part revealing profile (Gore is as smart as you'd guess, a Macintosh / Treo freak who creates his Keynote presentations himself, and a passionate, caring, positive, and funny person) and part hair-raising report on the astonishing changes our planet is undergoing as a result of massive increases in carbon dixode in recent decades. The two parts are woven together in a way that makes for a riveting, unforgettable movie. I especially like the fact that the film offers a way out of the frightening path we're taking. There's plenty to be scared about, but with smart (and expensive) work, Gore believes we can reverse global warming. Naturally, Big Oil is not happy about this film and has started attacking the facts presented in the film.(via boingboing.com).

    As usual, the first reaction of an addict is denial, and the addict today is a combination of ourselves and the entire fossil fuel industry. We love the convienience that comes with turning that key, and industry loves the money that otherwise nasty smelly goo brings in.

    The world is separated into two groups, those that will be dead before all hell breaks lose with the climate, and those that will live with the problem and suffer its effects.

    Those that will be dead can be in denial as much as they care to stomach,  depending on how much they love their grandchildren.

    Be in denial as much as you want , but do yourself a favor, don't have children, because they will curse your graves.

    Long a sceptic, David Attenborough tells Stuart Wavell why he is now certain the planet is warming up and issues a call to arms

    Like many of the animals he observes, David Attenborough is a creature of habit. For half a century he has marked out his territory in natural history films with a remit to explain what he calls “the glory of life”. Heavy sermonising is not his way. A leopard does not change its spots. Its cough is discreet.

    Admiration for the veteran broadcaster, 80 earlier this month, has been tempered by chiding voices of late. An estimated 1 billion people have seen his programmes, so why, ask critics, can’t this most mesmerising of presenters use his platform to more outspoken effect? They thought he could have made the green message more explicit in his last series, Planet Earth.

    This week we shall see a different Attenborough. He goes critical, assuming the mantle of a wrathful prophet as he enters the battle for the planet against climate change.

    Attenborough had remained silent on the subject of global warming during the debate on its validity. “I was very sceptical,” he admits. His outlook changed when climatologists showed him graphs linking the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with rising temperatures.

    “I was absolutely convinced this was no part of a normal climatic oscillation which the Earth has been going through and that it was something else,” he says.

    The result of his conversion is a two-part BBC1 documentary starting on Wednesday as part of the corporation’s Climate Chaos season, in which he looks at the future impact of global warming and discovers what steps can save the planet from dramatic change. It is another luminous production by the BBC’s natural history unit, but this time infused with a stark warning.

    Attenborough discovered a compelling reason for sounding the alarm. “How could I look my grandchildren in the eye and say I knew about this and I did nothing?” According to colleagues, he also feels a strong public obligation. “He’s very aware of the trust people hold in him,” says one.

    I put this to Attenborough, described recently as the most trusted man in Britain after Rolf Harris. The label sends him into a paroxysm of laughter that leaves him gasping: “Quite so . . . thank you . . . I don’t think I need to say any more.”

    But he does, veering off to blame himself for his part in the parlous state of the planet. “We are now realising the consequences of the things which we did: things that I did as a boy, things my parents did,” he begins. What can he mean? Yes, burning fires.

    “The carbon from the open fire that my parents burnt is still up in the atmosphere and will remain there for 100 years. Absolutely innocently and unwittingly over my lifetime and my parents’ lifetimes, we have been stacking up and thickening the carbon dioxide layer. We didn’t know but now we do. No one could blame my parents for having a coal fire but they could blame me.”

    Attenborough agrees there is little, “if anything”, we can do to reverse this backlog of carbon dioxide for the next 100 years. So what does he think of the assertions of Bjorn Lomborg, the Danish academic who says we should resign ourselves to a temperature increase of 2C over the next century, by which time a replacement will have been found for fossil fuel?

    While acknowledging that a new energy source is “a real possibility”, Attenborough takes issue with Lomborg. “If we don’t take stock now, and even if we get to this paradisiacal situation of having consequence-free energy, the carbon dioxide ‘tanker’ will still go sailing on for another 100 years.”

    The new BBC season is distinctive for the way it shows a whole range of climate indicators, from the examination of anaesthetised polar bears that are declining in numbers to climate modelling, all told by the top scientists in their field.

    Cameramen record the plight of Pacific islanders on Tuvalu, driven from their homes by the highest tides they have seen. The scene shifts from the stricken trees of the Amazon to deserted villages in China, where sandstorms and drought have affected thousands of lives.There are disturbing images of rapidly retreating glaciers in Patagonia and the devastating effects of coral bleaching in the warming seas around the Great Barrier Reef.

    The carbon “footprint” of an average American family is shown as black blocks floating over their heads and expanding with the decisions they take. Attenborough explains how seemingly “trivial” measures such as only filling the kettle with the amount needed, wearing a pullover when it’s cold and turning down the thermostat by one degree can produce immense savings. ..

    If there's one thing that alternative energy has taught me is that scientists are always right.

    Let us hope that all this discussion produces an effect. I have my doubts. What we need is government funded world-wide Manhatten type projects to research and develop ALL sources of non-fossil fuel and non-nuclear energy. We actually need this yesterday. mojo
