Doing what I need to do...

So, "An Inconvenient Truth" came out on DVD today, which means I was finally able to watch it. I wanted to go see it at the theater the day it came out, just like I did when "The Day After Tomorrow" came out.

Here I am sitting in front of the computer and I think I am at a general loss of words for how I truly feel after watching the movie, but I know that I have to do something. It baffles me (actually scares me beyond description) that there is all this evidence in front of politicians supporting all the facts about global warming and how it is a legit threat to human civilization as we know it, and mind you all this evidence is piling up as high as freaking Mt. Everest, and politicians, ESPECIALLY REPUBLICANS, just shrug their shoulders annd still DARE to say that global warming is just a hoax. It obviously isn't, especially since the first thing that Republicans try to do when movies like "An Inconvenient Truth" and "The Day After Tommorrow" come out is to try to stop them from being released to the theaters. Are their minds that guilt-ridden that they will go to extremes in order to stop the truth from coming out? Or I dunno, maybe it's just the fact that Al Gore made the movie. Anyway, this is one of those movies that regardless of what political beliefs you hold, you HAVE to watch this movie. And we have to take steps to ensure that the message that Al Gore and the entire scientist community have been trying to filter out to the general population is not only heard, but turns into a message we can all learn from and do something about. And one of the things we can do is to make sure WE DON'T EVER ELECT ANOTHER FUCKTARD LIKE GEORGE DUMBASS BUSH TO BE OUR PRESIDENT! It's time we start taking responsibility for our roles in global warming. I truly commend Al Gore for all the efforts he is doing to spread the overall message of warning, and the thousands of people around the world trying to do the same. I have always wanted to do something about it, and I can't believe it never really hit me how badly I wanted to do something about and for the environment until I watched this movie. I mean, all you have to do is watch it to see the tremendous amount of scientific evidence that supports global warming, from ice shelves the size of Rhode Island breaking off from Antarctica, to some of the worst tropical storms we have witnessed in recorded history, including the first ever tropical storm to form south of the Equator, to some of the highest temperatures we have seen in this planet all ocurring within the last 14 years! It is scary indeed, but you have to see the movie to see just how scary it can get if we don't do something about it. Let's just say that "The Day After Tomorrow" is not all fiction.

Anyway, sorry for the long rant... the environment is one of those things I am passionate about, and I think tonight I may have even been reminded of how truly passionate I am about it. And I can't stand still and not do anything after watching this movie, even if it's just telling all my friends about the movie. Please watch it if you have the time. Maybe all the evidence presented in the movie won't be enough to completely convince you that global warming is an actual threat, but I can guarantee you it will AT LEAST make you think and question your stance on the issue.

You can also go to http://www.climatecrisis.net and find out more info about the movie and the subject of global warming.

Anyway, I'm off to bed. Later kiddos.

Well, the desire to become one is still very much there... I just don't have the money to go back to school. So.... until I can figure out a way to whore my way into a meterologist position afford going back to school, I don't have another choice but to not pursue it. Sad, I know, but at the same time is one of those mistakes I made a long time ago that now I have to live with. =/
