The British Government produced this climate challenge video for its citizens, I find it very interesting not so much for the content, but for the fact that the government put it out. As I watched the video (many of the same themes you may have seen from the film "An Inconvenient Truth") I was struck by the fact that this was a government talking; I kept asking myself - if this same video could ever be made by our current administration in the United States?I like to stay fairly apolitical and balanced in discussions, this blog no exception, however occasionally I feel it is ok to ask some delicate questions, especially when they involve topics I feel are very serious and may have long term impact. If the answer to the above question is no, then why? Is the answer due to the personal beliefs of those in the administration? Or is it due to entrenched big-business-special-interest in Washington crippling Congress? Or is it possibly due to some political expediency to not alarm the populace? According to the Governor of California the debate on climate change is over, the science is irrefutable, and in the absence of federal leadership, his State and others are taking matters into their own hands.
