I’m not talking about climate change, a scientific phenomenon that we, as individuals have little or no control over. I’m referring to pollution that dirties the air we breathe and the water we drink. Why aren’t the out-of-work coal miners, factory workers, etc. being trained to do productive, environmentally safe jobs? We live in a Country of smart, ambitious, creative, critical thinkers. Capitalism is fine, and it’s okay for the rich to get richer, but why not put some of that money into our environmental Industries so that we, and future generations, benefit, even a little.
So, while I walked away from “An Inconvenient Truth” pondering the above, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” demonstrated the need for universal cooperation and better economic choices, even more.
If, as most scientists claim, climate change is partly man-induced … wouldn’t it behoove us all to err on the side of caution and do whatever we can to improve our environment?
My criticism of this follow-up documentary is that there was way too much of Al Gore on screen pontificating.
