I finally got around to watching the Al Gore film, An Inconvenient Truth, this weekend and I gotta tell ya, there’s some scary shit heading our way if global warming doesn’t cease.
The scariest thing is Gore’s predictions of what will happen to Manhattan in about ten years or less if we don’t start making efforts to reverse the damage. The image above is from the film. The clip actually shows my apartment building as one of the first ones to go. To put it mildly, no film in recent history has hit this close to home.
I’m sure you’re asking yourselves “Does he have the nerve to take a universal issue such as global warming and make it all about himself?” In a word, yes. I’ve never been the greatest swimmer. I have pets, if that sways you. Anything I can say that will make you buy an electric or solar-powered car, I’ll say it.
I am asking you, North America, China and parts of Europe, to please put a stop to this global catastrophe (and this is the important part) before my apartment building is underwater. If you can’t do it for yourselves, do it for me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Just to be on the safe side, I probably won’t be renewing my lease.
