Editorial Note: In the last week I have been educated about Climate Change by two documentary film works from two different producers with very distinct perspectives and presentations of the Global FACTS and ramifications. I recommend every one of you people and your children watch them both to be apprised of the issues and what is at stake for every human on the Earth. But that is just me folks. I really believe it is TIME to get off our collective asses and DO whatever WE can as individuals to STOP the murder and rape of our natural world in the favor of stockholder benefit and unbridled greed that is killing every one of us (and THEM TOO). ME the first thing I KNOW I can do is eat a lot more chicken and turkey burgers and tacos. And If I had the wherewithal I’d drive a Tesla model S and ride a new Zero SR electric motorcycle. But THAT is just a dream for now, so it is more chicken and ground turkey for me. Larry A, Publisher Justice News Network Gojnn.com @Gojnnnews
The first film I saw in a park, in the rain, in Los Angeles, was by Josh Fox titled How To Let Go Of The World And Love All The Things That Climate Can’t Change. See this trailer:
The Other Film was Leonardo DiCaprio’s Before The Flood. Unlike Josh’s film which I experienced with a crowd of fans, in a park, in the rain, I sat my myself in my living-room and watched Leo’s film on my TV.
Both works were educational and compelling. Both works made the case that the human race must NOW pull together to end the stranglehold that the fossil fuel industry has on our planet if we are to survive as a species in a world future generations will recognize as non-post apocalyptic. AND those generations are gonna be REALLY Pissed off at us if we do not ACT NOW on their behalf!
If it were up to me I would command the head of the joint chiefs of staff to take into custody every major officer of every major gas oil and coal corporation immediately. I would nationalize their assets and immediately place Elon Musk at the head of the world wide task-force to build the other 99 Gigafactories he says are required to streamline the world-wide transition to 100% renewable energy ASAP. I’d do it ll under the doctrine of Clear and Present Danger to WORLD Security!
But THAT is just me. Ya know folks it MAY come to that yet, because OUR Planet IS what’s at stake. Meanwhile The FIRST THING we all must do is GET BEHIND our relatives, RIGHT NOW, at the Standing Rock community and in South Dakota and Iowa to STOP the Dakota Access Pipeline. In fact EVERY NEW oil pipeline, Frack Gas Well project and any NEW coal fired ANYTHING must be stopped if you want your kids and grand-kids to have a shot at survival, and THAT’S NO SHIT!
Justice News Network is proud to recommend, NAY DEMAND that all you readers follow up and SEE this documentary on taking our fate back and away from the Big Petro Fuel industries that really have run the place for a hundred years now.
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award-winning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet. The film follows DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.
About the Production
In the late winter of 2014, Leonardo DiCaprio called actor and documentarian Fisher Stevens with an idea: he wanted to collaborate on a documentary that would explore the causes and effects of climate change around the world, and the urgent need to transition away from using fossil fuels — and he wanted to get started right away.
“Time is not a luxury we have,” said DiCaprio. “Our natural world is quickly nearing unprecedented, irreversible and catastrophic change that threatens the very future of humankind. I didn’t want the film to scare people, or present them with statistics and facts that they already know, but to focus on what can and must be done immediately so that we can leave our planet a livable home for future generations. We are quickly running out of time.”
So dump Football Baseball Basketball Hockey and Dancing With the Stars and The Voice Too. FOCUS Folks, focus on finding others that are educated about the MESS we are all in and understand that it is TIME to do whatever we can (like eating turkey burgers and a lot more salad cause even YOU can do that) to make the changes required to SLOW UP our planets slide into the Apocalypse we are currently heading at almost full speed for. Otherwise you can just say fuck it and let the worst case scenario force your grand kids and their kids to live permanently with breathing masks, maybe drink their own urine and be forced into wide scale cannibalism for food. Happy Happy Everyone.
Bonus: Premier Discussion with Leonardo DiCaprio & Barack Obama
