I don't like musicals. When I lived in NYC my girlfriend loved them so I suffered through some of the most famous musicals ever made to make her happy. But I find myself oddly interested in watching The Sound of Music tonight to see how Carrie Underwood does. So what about you?
Greenpeace has produced a video and posted it on youtube and entitled it "An urgent message from Santa". The gist of the message is that global warming is melting the North Pole and Christmas may be lost forever if you and your parents don't write to President Obama to urge him to curb more carbon emissions. CNN says that the International Climate Science Coalition responds that Santa should be celebrating the return of the ice to the north pole! In September it was reported that 553,000 miles of more ocean became frozen in 2013 compared to 2012!
If either side of a political, economical, environmental or any other kind of global, regional, or local issue attempts to frighten children to affect change they have forfeited the argument in my opinion. Let grown ups deal with the worlds problems and kids deal with growing up. In fact it seems like some "adults" should get back to growing up themselves.
