What do we do next?

Yesterday I saw the documentary, Chasing Ice. It’s probably the most beautiful and the scariest film I’ve ever seen.

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.

The film is so important it should be required viewing for every member of Congress and every person in the country. People who are skeptical about global warming and all employees of oil, gas and coal companies should be required to view it twice. View the trailer, go to the website, see the film and you will understand why I found it so scary. We are surely destroying the world we live in and no one seems to care.
