Wow! That was a really good video. Very informative and interesting. I thought it was crazy when Gates said, "All the batteries on earth can only provide for 10 minutes of the world's electricity needs"

My first thought was walking through home depot and seeing an entire rack of energizers.

Good video, show the class at least some of this!

Oh dear god. Haha. I am finishing up my paper and I am looking for counter arguments to global warming. Take a peek at some of the ones I've found so far. Rofl

Now take a wander on over and look up global warming from sites by NASA or other RESEARCH agencies, Colleges, etc.

If there is one thing I've learned through this class it is how to tell professional sites from social BS. I think it's night and day which is which.



In other news, and interesting poem on perception:

I think that Gate's point is important, but the trouble is no one, in America at least, wants to spend the money or or go the trouble to fix our emission problem.

This is crazy how much energy we use. This video was very interesting, i think its about time we start figuring out other ways to get energy.

This video was very eye opening! It goes to show you how much energy we as americans use... I think he has a good point but it will be hard to confront everyone about the problem and get them to care. That's alwasy the problem...
