Waterlife, a new film screams for our attention to the plight of the Great Lakes. They are dying a painful death. The Beluga Whales have cancer, the people are sick and the soil is contaminated. They have built an amazing website for the film with alot of information on the situation; I highly encourage you to visit it – Link here.
The disaster of the Great Lakes is another example of industries going too far, caring too little and forgetting that they are part of – and not exlusive of – the communities they operate in. The film is clearly calling for a new attitude, so well defined by MLK, “The fierce urgency of now”. If you are a business, what are you doing about this? If you are a consumer, what actions are you taking to reduce your impact?
