Addendum: An Inconvenient Truth

It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it. — Upton Sinclair

Thanks to moschus for reminding me of An Inconvenient Truth, which I've been meaning to mention, but have forgotten (along with lots of other things) in the mad rush of editing these last three weeks. Anyway, yes, the website's here, and I urge you to watch the trailer and add your name to the list of people pledging to see the film. It will be screening here in Atlanta on June 9th at the Tara, and I for one will be there. In my wildest dreams, I just begin to hope that the world is finally waking up, here at the eleventh hour, when even now it may be too late to turn the tide of global warming. It's time to listen to the scientists and educate yourselves and understand the science and take the fate of the planet — or at least this version of the planet, the one amenable to human life — out of the hands of politicians and corporations. I'm not an optimist, and I'm not even sure than humanity deserves another chance, but I'd still rather see mankind fighting a losing battle, if it's the right losing battle, than continuing to ignore what's happening.

Meanwhile, today is managing to be stupendously unproductive.
