Tonight we watched the film An Inconvenient Truth. It is a film where facts about global warming are laid out very clearly by Al Gore, who is incredibly interesting to listen to and very knowledgeable about this subject. This is certainly a film that everyone should see.
All too often, films like this are made and no clear indication is given as to what every person can do to help. But An Inconvenient Truth was very good in this respect as well.
At the end of the film and on the website, a list of common every-day energy saving and environmentally sound practices are given. They include recycling more and using public transportation, turning off lights and electronic devices when you are not using them, and so on. The website is http://www.climatecrisis.net and I would very much recommend reading it and seeing the film.
It seems like an impossible problem - but really it is not. There are just a few things that everyone can do to help and to treat our planet better.
It was a fantastic film and I very much recommend it.
