I finally went to see An Inconvenient Truth and it was well done and worth seeing for anyone who's interested in living on planet Earth or wishes their progeny to continue to live on Earth.
I learned things like an ice age can occur in my lifetime (within 10 years), polar bears are drowning because they can't find ice (even though they can swim 100 miles), and the reduction of CFC's has been successful in stopping the ozone hole from growing!
Things I'm going to work on to reduce Carbon Dioxide:
1. Get an insulation blanket for my water heater (save 1,000 pounds of CO2)
2. Unplug electronics from the wall when I'm not using them
3. Buy more fresh foods
4. Avoid buying as many packaged products

In some ways, I think we should have had the Unity rally after the NSM thing, just to wash the bad taste out of the mouth, so to speak. But, through the power of video, we can remember what Olympia is about. Enjoy.
The response in Olympia, however, was one of the most effective I've seen yet. For one thing, by making mockery the theme of the day, it transformed the mood of the crowd from an angry one -- and who wouldn't get angry if they actually listened to what these Nazis were saying? -- into a celebratory one. They played music, they danced, and made so much noise having fun that, if you were in the crowd, you couldn't hear a word the Nazis were spewing.
