Do the Math: A Movie to Spark a Movement

Do the Math: A Movie to Spark a Movement

The fossil fuel industry is killing us. 

They have five times the amount of coal, gas and oil that is safe to burn -- and they are planning on burning it all. Left to their own devices, they'll push us past the brink of cataclysmic disaster -- life as we know it will be irrevocably altered forever. Unless we rise up and fight back. 

Do The Math chronicles follows the climate crusader Bill McKibben as he works with a rising global movement in a David-vs-Goliath fight to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. 

This growing groundswell of climate activists is going after the fossil fuel industry directly, energizing a movement like the ones that overturned the great immoral institutions of the past century, such as Apartheid in South Africa. The film follows people who are putting their bodies on the line the Keystone XL Pipeline and leading universities and institutions to divest in the corporate polluters hellbent on burning fossil fuels no matter the cost.

Baby Bieber Busted

Think maybe it's time to throw this little self important baby in jail like some of the other spoiled Hollywood kids.   Where the hell are his parents or at least his managers.  Someone put a collar on him, please!

Justin Bieber will be prosecuted for allegedly spitting on and threatening to kill his 47-year-old neighbor outside his home in Calabasas, California. The neighbor had confronted him about "reckless driving," the report claims. If true, perhaps Bieber wants to show the world that he's also reckless when not driving.

In another incident a witness reports ... “It was absolutely outrageous,” Zine told NBC. “Horrific. They were driving with complete disregard for people and property, weaving in and out of traffic. I was heading in an easterly direction and this car came by me at least 100 miles per hour.   Avoiding paparazzi was his excuse.

Justin Bieber can't seem to catch a break. After having to leave his pet monkey behind in Germany, the star reportedly didn't have any better luck in Austria. The 19-year-old star has now been banned from Passage club in Vienna, Austria. The Austrian Times reports that the club's managers claim the singer's bodyguards smashed fans' cameras, as well as destroyed the cellphones of other patrons. "Justin Bieber is no longer welcome here," club manager Joachim Bankel told the paper.

Starting this Blog so I don't have to post my personal life and trivia in my other Blogs that mainly are concerned with Mexico

The original reason for this Blog has changed a bit towards being political and exposing a few jerks that we run across in the news or in person. Hope some of you find it interesting.
