Wow Dave ...
I'd say that was a Jumbo Jet flying over your head there...

But considering it's a (pretty famous and well known issue) carbon emissions joke...

I'd hazard a guess that it is more like a 10 mile-an-hour.. very slow... low-flying ...monster-zeppelin with the name "KYOTO" in big giant bold red crayon on the side of it...buzzing your scalp as it flew over your head.

THAT was amazing Mscion...
you got one past Dave...
almost unheard of....
bravo...

The alarms have been going off on mortgaging our future for 34 years now.
It was the 80's when it was widely stated and we were supposed to do something about it then....we most obviously dipping into the planets critical reserves it uses to provide and sustain us way back then.
Now...fabricated crisis and truly non-relevant and meaningless conflicts (looking objectively at the big picture..that is...) , shortened attention spans, and poor education of the populations have made this the dark joke waiting .... chain eco-biospheres collapsing isn't far away.
Just take 1 critical hinge...the bee.
Between over-extending suburbs into wild ares, a parasite and neotins (we use on seed for crops... to stop pests eating them...it has easily inserted itself damagingly into the bee pops.) unfortunately the U.S. gov't has stated that bee pops. as a species aren't sustainable...instead of immediate cessation of urban sprawl...instead of focusing all the science we have to combat the bee parasite...instead of immediate banning and cessation of use of neotins...we are giving up on our best friends and our future ...by working on construction of a synthetic drone bee to pollinate ....at an even more atrocious cost ....and it also begs the question...what will get pollinated? Only what the companies wish.
We are very screwed.

Good film...
Documentary-ish
With the late (deceased) Pete Postlethwaite...
It was his last film I believe...

The Age of Stupid

***This ambitious documentary/drama/animation hybrid stars Pete Postlethwaite as an archivist in the devastated world of the future, asking the question: "Why didn't we stop climate change when we still had the chance?" He looks back on footage of real people around the world in the years leading up to 2015 before runaway climate change took place.***

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2332885785/


pretty good.

Good question, indeed.

One famous Guy once Said we create our own demons.

Why am I telling you this?

I agree with you...the whole "we create our own demons" concept is indeed valid. Sadly the imagery of the words "create" and "demons" have the underlying implications that it is illusory and fabricated. As well there is the implied concept that the situation is a closed loop...whereas the reality is that the multitudinous number of demons (knowingly or unknowingly created) have been converging....en masse...so thick there isn't space to see past them as they approach... to a central foci ....or a singularity of sorts....indeed Dave...your final countdown will be epic.
But enough of the gloom...
A better outlook on the future...
Sure it is grim....
But it sure is one of the most hilarious films I've ever seen.

Idiocracy

it's got electrolytes...

This is how I figure it's goin' down.

I mean how can you go wrong with Justin Long (the old apple vs pc commercials...you know..."Hi ...I'm a Mac..." "Hi ...I'm a PC..."...)
playing a stoned doctor at Saint God's Hospital...
or Terry Crews (who did alot of those hilarious old spice commercials) playing President Comacho of the U.S.A.

and of course Dax Shepard as Frito Lay..

freakin funny movie...
