Heat waves. Melting glaciers. Rising sea levels. Catastrophic storms. Migrating viruses. Population displacement. Over the past 100 years, the mass consumption of fossil fuels, especially in America, has contributed to a dangerous warming of the earth that has adversely impacted the way we live. The cautionary documentary TOO HOT NOT TO HANDLE offers a guide to the effects of global warming in the United States. http://www.hbo.com/docs/programs/toohot/index.html
I am picking this on DVD, it is no longer in the hbo scheduled line up. I'll post a review when I get it.
I just went to see this the other night. It was free at the local downtown theatre, early in the evening, sponsored by the local university ecology club, who are sponsoring a free movie every week for the next month or so. The theater is providing the space free, too, as a public service. I thought the program (made for TV apparently) was okay, did a good job of showing some of the causes and effects of global warming, but I thought that they were way too optimistic about reducing/stopping/reversing global warming--sort of "somebody will find a way to make money doing it and everything will be okay'.
