Stop me if you know the answer to this one, "What is the one single industry destroying the planet more than any other?"

We all know the answer to that one ... Right?

The fossil fuel industry, of course. And we feel completely helpless to stop the Drilling and the Fracking and the Mining. No matter what we do -- we know Global Climate Change is here. It's going to get worse, and there's nothing we can do about it. We can leave all our cars in the driveway, take shorter showers, change out all our light bulbs, get a low-flow toilet, recycle every scrap, think globally and buy locally, and it won't make any discernible difference at all.
Personal change won't save the planet as long as the energy barons are calling the shots. Billionaires are buying the politicians hand over fist, while suppressing the vote and simultaneously lying to voters on a minute-by-minute basis with the full cooperation of the media. Go ahead. Take shorter showers. Control of the "system" has been systematically taken away from us. There's nothing we can do, so we might as well crack open a beer, sit on the porch, and watch the sun go down on all of us.

This is a pretty typical "Moment With Bob" isn't it? In one paragraph I can suck all the air out of the room and replace hope and optimism with despair. What can I say... It's a gift. But hold on to your socks, buckle up, and make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position, because we're about to make a full 180 ... Right Now.

Personal Change Can Save The Planet. But we've got to hurry.

I just found this out a couple of days ago and I'm still kind of overwhelmed. I never imagined this could happen, but it did. I watched a documentary -- That Changed My Life. After an event like that, of course I've tipped over and become evangelical about it.

Everybody Must See This Film: "COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret."

You'll find out that the one single industry destroying the planet more than any other is not Big Oil, Coal, and Gas but ... Animal Agriculture.

And there is something we can do about it. Starting Right Now. And if we do ... we've just bought ourselves a future. Go here: cowspiracy.com -- watch all the video clips, and read everything. Find a screening, go to a theatre, or host a screening yourself. You Must See This Film.

Now I'll stop typing for awhile and cut and paste information from cowspiracy.com...
"There is one single industry destroying the planet more than any other.

"But no one wants to talk about it...

"'COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret' is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

"The Air

"Transportation is responsible for 13% of all greenhouse gas emissions.

"Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than all transportation combined.

Some 45 years ago I became aware of the fact that the government of The United States was trying to kill me. I wasn't paranoid or anything. I mean I knew the government wasn't out to kill me personally. They just wanted to kill as many Vietnamese (more...)
