An Inconvenient Truth

We heard Al Gore talk again on the importance of taking care of the earth, and everything on it. Flipping through channels we saw him on Oprah tonight, a show we don't usually watch. She also interviewed those who think Gore's message is wrong. It still surprises me that someone thinks Gore is "wrong." Whether global warming happens slowly, or quickly, it's still happening. Does it matter the length of time it takes for icebergs to melt, or land to dry up? It's happening, so we should be able to start taking steps to slow it down, or turn the tide in the right direction, don't you think?
Educating young people to become conservationists makes total sense. If children are taught from a young age to take care of the planet, we are that much further ahead in conserving our resources, and helping maintain the health of the planet for future generations. Photography is a perfect medium in which to work....helping young people "see" the world around them in a positive light, and as an ongoing project. What are we waiting for?
