I originally wanted to post this yesterday, because it was January 1, but after learning of Betty White’s passing I didn’t want to take away from the memorials to her life and achievements. So, I’m posting it today.
In addition to reading the books that were recommended by my dear friend Anita, I’ve also been watching several very good documentaries on Netflix. This post is about those documentaries.
In no particular order, the Netflix documentaries I’d recommend are:
What The Health
Salt Fat Acid Heat
Down To Earth with Zach Efron
Kiss The Ground
The Game Changers
The Bleeding Edge
If you have access to Netflix – especially Netflix streaming service – you owe it to yourself and the planet to watch these documentaries. Together, they build a compelling argument against the currently accepted “traditional western diet”. They also present a very good foundation for building a defense against Global Warming.
While thinking about New Year resolutions – I’m compelled by having watched these shows to make the following commitment – I’m going to spend the rest of January 2022 as a vegan. If that succeeds in reducing my arthritis and other body problems, I’ll commit to that lifestyle in perpetuity.
At this point, I don’t think there are very many intelligent, well-informed, people left on the planet who would dispute the idea that the average temperature of the planet is getting higher. What the actual cause of that warming is, well, that is still up for debate.
However, a couple of months ago I watched a documentary that I’ve been meaning to post about on here. That I didn’t post about it earlier was mostly due to all of the other distractions we’ve had going on. Still, I think it is of sufficient importance that I’m forcing myself to go ahead and post about it now.
The name of the documentary is “Kiss The Ground” – and if you have access to Netflix Streaming it is still available on there.
The amazing thing about this documentary is the very simple solution it offers to the problem of Global Warming. Almost every solution I’ve seen suggested involved complex ideas that were either capitalistic or industrial in nature, and relied on heavy-handed governmental intervention. “Kiss the Ground” proposes a solution that any farmer or gardener can implement right on their own property – and could even be used to reclaim land that has previously turned to pure waste.
If you have even a couple of hours of free time between now and the end of the year, you owe it to yourself (and the planet) to watch this documentary. If you agree with me after you’ve seen it, buy a copy for every elected official in your area and mail it to them, if for no other reason than getting us out of the complicated schemes proposed by people who would take advantage of a global crisis for personal gain.
According to new research, the earth is actually benefiting from increased emissions of carbon dioxide gasses. Here’s the link to the BBC News article with more info:
