We were shown this video last night in my algorithm design class (long story). It is 20 minutes long and uses Flash so you'll need the plugin installed.

While I don't wholeheartedly agree with everything, it should still give you pause and make you at least consider what is going on around you.

Be warned that there is some "anti-commercialism"/"anti-government"/"agendizing" in it, but the overall message is pretty good.

It's a great thumbnail explanation of how we're wrecking the planet and the distribution of power into the hands of a few - loses accuracy through generality but that's ok, the underlying message is sound. Thanks for posting, RPM!

No, thank you. That was a much better explanation of its shortcomings. I believe I shall steal your quote. ;)
