The Age of Stupid

This is a great doc to share with everyone you know. Wow. Ow.

Some crazy facts from the film:

- If all 6½ billion people on the planet consumed like Europeans or the Japanese, we would need 2 more planets to supply the necessary resources.

- An American uses twice as much energy as a European, 9 times as much as a Chinese person, 15 times more than an Indian and 50 times as much as a Kenyan.

- China builds a new power plant EVERY 4 DAYS!!

- The same PR company employed to convince Americans there is still doubt about the whole climate change debate is the same firm employed to convince Americans that smoking was good for them.

- Everyone agrees that it is necessary to stabilize the temperature at no more than 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels. Anything above that and there are forces in nature that will move the tipping point out of human control.

...and...the point of stabilization MUST BE NO LATER THAN 2015!!!
