Anybody else going to catch A Fierce Green Fire on PBS tonight?



I heard some excerpts today on DN! and it sounded awesome.

4. It'll be on their website and cable on demand shortly.

Probably after it airs out here on the left coast. I might have to catch it that way depending on how late hockey goes.

7. what did you think?

I tried to watch it, but I've got a short attention span.

I thot that the D-N preview captured the best.
but then I need to pay better attention.

it's repeated often.

8. I wanted more time on each story. All together they didn't really create a cohesive narrative,

and the end segment about global warming seemed tacked on and lacked the drama of the rest, even though it's a dramatic story. The dramatic story of our times. It made me think about that old Stalin line about one death being a tragedy and a million being a statistic. Talking about looking in the eyes of two dying whales was heartbreaking. Talking about a dying biosphere? It's harder to tell that story, and I don't think they managed it because they didn't make it visual and compelling, so it didn't make good film. That's probably why it's so hard to inspire the general public on the matter.

I loved the history of it though: most of those stories were from before my time.

9. so true..

I always note that a single puppy found in a garbage can will engender tons of support and interest, and $ for the vet, and of course, people fight over who will adopt it.

But the misery of millions of animals in our society doesn't engender much attention at all.

And yet, if the mass media gave attention to the big picture, to the dying biosphere, instead of to the individual whales, I think this would change peoples' attitudes.

I guess it is a question of which came first-
incompetent nincompoop media
or
ignorant, bored, distracted, entranced by celebrity public.
?
