Pay for what you use

I saw Inconvenient Truth last night (blogged about the movie previously here and here) and strongly encourage all Urban Eola readers to see it. Make an effort to see it ASAP because it's not a big budget mega-movie that will be out in the theatres for months.

Anyone that knows me knows I'm not about politics one way or another. I'm passionate about
issues that I think are worthy to support for the betterment of people, life, things, etc.

As I learned in college from Professor James Porter, the environment is one of those no-brainer causes that is worth the effort and needs everyone's help (see Leonardo DiCaprio's short videos on the issue for more proof).

Here's an analogy: You sit for 30 minutes in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, New York City watching the street performers entertain you. If you enjoyed the entertainment value that they provided you, you'd most likely tip them a buck or so.

Well, everyone uses the earth's natural resources, whether it's sitting at the beach soaking up the sun and water or throwing a football in a beautiful public park or hiking a mountain or running on a natural trail. There is essentially no charge for using these natural forms of entertainment. Therefore, helping to protect and save the environment is our way of paying back the planet for our free use of it's resources.

It's about doing the right thing and making a difference, no matter how small it is. So go see
Inconvenient Truth and let's discuss its impact.

Well written. Perhaps you can follow up by collecting these $1 bills and then donate them to an environmental group.

I am going to buy the Book that goes along with the movie. All profits from the book and the movie are going to the environment.

Loved the movie and your comments. We take all the beauty of nature around us for granted. "The best things in life are free, stop and smell the flowers", let's do our part to nurture nature, so we can enjoy this "free" show for many years to come.
