Opinion

From Library Staff

Confronted with the idea of a dying planet sends Bill Nye into a tailspin. Using the framework of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's five stages of grief—denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance—Nye tackles global warming and finds that it is not too late, there is still hope.

Although the celebrity cameo by Arnold Schwarzenegger and his related scenes are rather goofy and silly, they serve to lighten a film about a deadly serious topic. Science educator Bill Nye goes through the various effects of climate change on the world, and the scenes aren't pretty. Nonetheless, the 'Science Guy' feels optimistic about the ability of social change and technological innovation to push the world into a green energy direction. This interesting movie is highly recommended as a background primer on climate change issues and also a reminder of just how important things have gotten.

I liked this documentary DVD. It is about being green and environmentally friendly. It is about alternative solutions. It shows how the current systems are damaging the earth. It is very scientific. It is well organized. I recommend watching this and applying it in your life.

Watch This! Then see if you can possibly continue to deny it. Don't you owe it to your kids and grandkids?

This is an extremely informant video about global warming. It is also good proof that global warming is very real. Beware, all non-believers! Your nightmare is nigh and true!

Walt out.
