Before the Flood is a documentary from National Geographic featuring Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s nice to see the King of the World use his star power reach out to those who would not pay any attention to these matters otherwise. (We’re not quite conscious enough there yet to be able to just listen to facts just from anyone the same way we do from a celebrity.) It’s a testament to the film that the topic came across more importantly and overshadowed the movie star.
I’m grateful for the people who have worked hard to remind those of us who have been distracted from important issues.
Climate change is generally not an immediate short term problem for myself and my friends and family here in BC (Canada). By that, I mean we will likely not see any major effects in our own lifetime. It makes it even easier to be more complacent about it. Why even care?
For me, it’s a responsibility of taking care of our home. Until we fully accept Earth IS our Home it’s likely we won’t care and be mindful of it as much as we are with our house, apartment, basement suite, condo, RV. Imagine if we all consciously treated Earth as our Home . . .
IT IS UP TO ALL OF US
Do you want to be part of the problem or part of the solution?
Watch the film . . . Do you feel that Earth is Home? Do you understand the problem? Are you going to do anything about it?
Lies, Damned Lies, and Global Warming Statistics
