This insightful movie
30 March 2012 | by (Australia, N.S.W) – See all my reviews

Has a lot of information that is at once provocative to even the dullest mind.

There can be no doubting the importance of this kind of media coverage.

Plastic bags = self destruction.

The data and imagery, the accuracy, it is all blindingly serious.

There is a slight absurdity about it all and this is well suited to the topic which is easily argued as the purest form of absurdity.

There is none more insane then our destruction of what we have and are, self sabotage while ignorance is bliss.

Its good that it has a global slant despite forcing the U.S condition.

I recommend this movie for all people. Hippies and non hippies alike. It should be essential educational material.
