If you have read a couple of my posts here, you might have realized that I’m not only interested in Java Studio Creator. Sometimes I also look out of my window;-)
So I was thinking if I should add a link to a film, which I find very important. So far I staid out of big product announcements etc. But in the end, I believe that’s an important enough issue to bring it up here.
So if you want to watch a film, which might shock you quite a bit, try to find a theater which shows “An Inconvenient Truth”. Here are some trailers
I tried to get this into our local Cinemax theater but the guy told me, that’s a decision of the distributers. I don’t know if that’s true or not:-( So I’ll probably have to find another theater which shows the film:-(
Have a good day;-)

And then there is this on the other end of the spectrum: http://streams.cei.org/
I will refrain from comments on those ads since they would not be civil at all….
Thanks to the strong opening weekend returns Paramount will distribute the movie to more markets.
They are updating the list of theaters you may check it here:
As for those CEI ads, the one about CO2 is so ridiculous it makes Bush look like an expert on climate change.
The issue is of course not that we have CO2 in the atmosphere but that we have too much.
The second ad is dishonest to the core and the scientist who was the main author of one of those papers said this:
“These television ads are a deliberate effort to confuse and mislead the public about the global warming debate,” Davis said. “They are selectively using only parts of my previous research to support their claims. They are not telling the entire story to the public.”
You can read his full statement here:
The third ad is picked apart by Tim Lambert form scienceblog.com here:
Moreover, CEI cannot know how much Gore really travels as he obviously didn’t tell them.
But even if he had told them Gore lives a carbon neutral life, which of course CEI fails to mention:
Surely he could make a start by flying less? “Beginning two years ago, I made a decision to live a carbon-neutral life,” he says, explaining that his family and businesses now do all they can to reduce their emissions and to “offset” the rest by giving money to carbon-reduction schemes in India and eastern Europe.
Thanks for the pointer. I looked at those ads:-(
For the amount of CO2, the kid was breathing out during the whole spot (one minute), her dad’s SUV could travel about 2.5 yards at highway mileage estimates.
The question is not, CO2 yes or no, but rather where is the limit?
