Sometimes people are just idiots

Posted by gnn1 on Wednesday, 15 August 2007

When someone presents a documentary about a problem with something (the US healthcare system for example) and doesn’t offer up possible solutions, they are criticised.

And now, when someone presents a doco about a problem like global warming (specifically Leonardo DiCaprio’s The 11th Hour) and does offer up solutions they are criticised.

Critics are saying the movie is

too quick to come up with solutions to difficult environmental problems.

Okay, whatever happened to every little bit helps?  And it’s not like he pulled these answers out of his arse.  He had environmental advisors.

Kenny Ausubel, a founder of environmental group Bioneers and advisor on The 11th Hour…”To leave people (with a doomsday view), would be like, ‘What do I do now, go home and shoot myself?’ “The solutions are here. We already know what to do in most cases and even when we don’t, we know what directions to head in.”

I’m almost 30 and I remember hearing about global warming at least as far back as middle school (17 years give or take).  So yeah, I’d say that we have some idea what to do.

And to the critics–are you doing your part?  Then shut up, because either way you have no grounds to complain.
