Blog Action Day 2009

Today is Global Blog Action Day.  When I was first asked to participate, I knew immediately what I wanted to write about.

If you have an hour and a half to spare for the planet, I highly recommend French photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand's exquisite 90-minute documentary Home, produced by Luc Besson.  The photography is breathtaking and the message is compelling.  Earth is our fragile island home -- the only home we have.  Our challenges in taking care of our home today and in the future are complex.

Arthus-Bertrand, perhaps best known for his documentary and book Earth from Above (La Terre vue du ciel) has given up author's rights to Home so that all may see it on the web.  You'll be glad you did.

For more information check out his website GoodPlanet.

I am in total disagreement with the Global Warming Cartel. Many well-known and respected scientists have pointed out, time and time again, that whole premise is based on poor calculations. In some cases, the "proof" has actually been manufactured. Do I believe there is global warming? Yes, I do, but it is not man-made, it is the natural cycle of the earth.

Thanks for your opinion, Starman. You are certainly not alone in your views. Vive le debat!

Thanks for talking about this; my friends and I held a movie night when it was first released and I was just mesmerised....the photogaphy is stunning!

Starman, whether or not climate change is human-caused (and the science clearly proves it is), we have a responsibility to treat the earth well. Let's not waste time arguing over who to blame when we could be doing constructive things to secure a better future.
