What makes Earth habitable? This LiveScience original video explores the science of global warming and explains how, for now, conditions here are just right.

This was one of the trailers shown before "And Inconvenient Truth". Here is Moby's commentary on it:

Jun 27, 2006 - new york city

tonight i meet up with some friends and watched 'who killed the electric car?'
it's a great movie, and well worth seeing.
in some ways it's almost a bit more sophisticated and far reaching in it's scope than 'an inconvenient truth'(which is also great).
what's fascinating about 'who killed the electric car?' is the realization that oil is becoming a strange nexus of many different issues.
a-national security(almost all of our foreign policy vulnerabilities are a result of the oil trade and our reliance on foreign oil...iraq, afghanistan, saudi arabia, lybia, etc. even north korea, which we've ignored because they don't have oil or natural gas).
b-the environment. global warming is a result of burning oil and coal. quite simple.
c-technology. we subsidise old industries(oil, coal, etc), but neglect new technologies that will deliver prosperity in the future(wind, solar, hydro, battery technologies, etc).

so i believe that what we'll see is the following:
a-strange 'matchmaking' between neo-cons and environmentalists, between hippies and christians, between high-tech and national security.
and
b-gas prices are going to start coming down soon, for the mid-term elections and to discourage investment into alternative and sustainable energy sources.
if the democrats were smart they would make energy a key issue for all of these reasons.
it's a huge republican weakness(as gw bush and cheney both ran oil companies and condi rice was on chevron's board of directors and 80% of the oil companies campaign contributions go to republicans, etc).
it's not just the environment, it's not just national security, it's not just a viable high-tech future, it's all 3 combined.

I went and saw the movie last night. I STRONGLY URGE EVERYONE to go see it as well. I started to cry at some points, including when the polar bears were drowning because they could no longer find ice in the North Pole to rest upon.

PLEASE!

Global Warming is a DANGEROUS REALITY!

WE MUST FIGHT NOW!

Trailer for the upcoming summer movie "An Inconvenient Truth". If you care about the planet you live on, even remotely, watch this trailer.

Eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Gore’s personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. The film is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry.

Trailer (2:30)
Documentary
Rating: PG
In Theatres: May 24th, 2006

Found this lovely gem on [livejournal.com profile] mobyjournal

SUV's are the scourge of the planet and it just doesn't seem like the auto manufacturers care. They guzzle gas and destroy the atmosphere. Every time I see an Escalade or a Hummer, I just want to pummel the driver yelling WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!

Well, somebody's thinking. Chevy launched an advertising campaign asking for submissions for car ad spots, calling it Chevy's Apprentice. I urge EVERYONE to view this before Chevy realizes it's there and yanks it.

THANK YOU MOBY!
