why bother?

a must watch - an inconvenient truth. the movie that got al gore the nobel peace prize.
must have seen it 3 times in multiple combos on DVD, cable etc.
each time i have been less impressed by al gore. while the message of imminent catastrophe is acceptable and even within the best realms of probability, the messenger makes it less credible.

coming to the title of this post.
i first heard of michael pollan from this terrific speech.

pollan writes an excellent article in response to the movie, titled 'why bother?'.
nice weekend reading.
he quotes wendell berry a lot. i have a seminal speech of berry. another post material.
