As I sit here this evening, contemplating what the vote will be tomorrow in the US as the House of Representatives votes on the Waxman-Markey Climate Change legislation, I wander through a few late night Tweets (Twitter), and suddenly find myself face-to-face with three youths in Alaska. The video (on YouTube) is simple and is the kind of documentary we need more of – first person, authentic, real things. Something that we need to move to, within this complex world that is full, synthetic, resonant, and full of noise.
Take 4 minutes and 28 seconds to absorb this beautiful video of high school students sharing their observations. We have the responsibility to ask our legislators to change the laws in Canada – move forward to Copenhagen, with Canadian targets to reduce emissions.
