A positive video about the environment, for a change!

Aug 24, 2011

This video really has a proactive approach on how to tackle the carbon emissions we release into the environment. The only problem is that most of them are expensive and not necessarily realized - other than reducing our energy consumption. What irked me is that it follows the tendancy of other eco videos in praising the use of nuclear power but spends NO time discussing the real issue of nuclear waste disposal (which could be tackled because there's been more than a few nuclear waste site with leaks). Nuclear waste is toxic and there's no magic wand to make it go away.
