11th Hour

Must See
The 11th Hour is playing this week at Cinema 21. (8-31-07 to 9-6-07) In my opinion it is one of the best films I have ever seen. The web site is www.11thhourfilm.com. Go see it and bring your friends.
This film has insights from 50 "experts" in there fields. Including talk show host Thom Hartman and others. My favorate quote was from Theodore Roosevelt "The Americans will always do the right thing...after they've exhausted all the alternatives." The film illustrates what a dire situation we are in and that the planet earth will continue, with or without humans. It also states that we have the ability to reduce our impact to the environment by 90% with existing knowledge. Now is the time we either continue our current path and wipe out 99% of all life on this planet or change our behavior and curb the damage we have done. Which do you choose? Please see this film.
