What can one EcoGeek do to save the world? Well, we can look at Al Gore and be like..."Yeah, he did a pretty good job...but he's a rich ex-almost-president."
But then you get some guy in Oregon to make a fairly logical argument on YouTube and, voila. Four million video views later he's changed the world. Man I love geeks, geeks are so good for the world.
And this guy is DEFINITELY a geek. A fantastic geek.
His first video, the one that's been watched over 4 million times, gives a concise explanation of the precautionary principle. But then, in later videos he fills in the gaps in his argument, in my opinion very completely. He also has an adorable "devil's advocate" version of himself who he argues with.
It's amazingly well done...but I still wouldn't expect it to be so popular. But he's capitalized on his fame, and has now created a 44 part video series on global warming! I'd like to talk to Mr. Craven but, as of now, he's too busy getting covered by the likes of ABC.
So next time you think one person can't do anything, remember it all starts with education, and education starts with teachers. And this guy is just one of the millions of teachers who work to make the world a better place every day.
