DiCaprio’s 11th Hour

I went to one of the opening shows of Leonardo DiCaprio’s new “documentary movie.” It, and what he is doing with it, are fantastic. I highly recommend it. A discussion followed the movie, led by Brian Gerber, one of the film’s producers, and Gil Friend, a friend who consults on environmental and sustainability matters. How is a discussion after the movie for an anomaly? Really it was something more than a “documentary.”

Three things impressed me about the presentation, aside from the fact that it was well done and showed the disastrous situation clearly, with lots of grounding: First, it showed clearly that there is already at work a broad constituency of people actively at work to do something about the mess. Second, while it pointed a finger directly at businesses as major contributors and culprits in the situation, it did not blame businesses for the situation. Third, it laid the responsibility for the mess, and for cleaning it up, squarely in the hands of you and me.

Here’s the trailer.

Go see it!

  1. I just wanted to let people know that if you are interested in test driving a real Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicle you can register to do it at this site:

    http://www.chevrolet.com/fuelcell/

    You must live in New York City; Washington, D.C.; or Southern California and be of the required age, etc. You can check out if your eligible and then apply for the test program.

    This is an amazing functioning Hydrogen Fuel cell vehicle that can travel at speeds up to 100 miles per hour and is crash test rated. It runs on Hydrogen and the emissions are H20. Amazing – if you want to be part of moving us to the next level and getting rid of our dependence on petroleum then sign up for the test program.
