It's Not Easy Bein' Green

Kermit the Frog had it right or is it left? Environmentalism is one of those hot button issues not only in the world of politics, but also in the pulpits of the Church. And I'll be the first to tell you a couple of things about me: 1. I am environmentally irresponsible, but wanting to change my heart and ways. 2. This is an incredibly complex issue with lots of science and data...neither of which I am very good at so I rely on other people's knowledge to inform my thinking. 3. I am trying to work my way through this issue so as to be theologically, environmentally, and economically responsible.

With all that being said...I was bumping around some random blogs when I came across this blog post and subsequent link on environmentalism. Now what's interesting is it's from Penn and Teller (the magicians/comedians). I thought the slant was going to lean one particular way and was surprised when it didn't. Take a look at the video, but only if you have 30 minutes. It's that long, but worth it - informative and entertaining. It's from their Showtime show, "Bullshit". It's very interesting and well worth your time.

(for some reason the video is not working. the person who had it on google may have had to take it down b/c of Showtime and copyright reasons. I haven't been able to find it anywhere else so that would be a bummer. Hopefully it'll start working so by some act of technomagic!)

for some reason, I can't get the video to you have a link? -- or at least a link to the blog that you got it from?

a couple years ago I saw them do a think on the bible that was completely vile, but excellent in that it really illuminated how most non-church-types think about the bible
