son film team takes on auto exhaust
She'd recently learned that burning a gallon of gas, which weights six pounds, . Suddenly she imagined the cars around her spewing human waste and stumbled on the idea for a new film.
A year later, on Tuesday, April 22 Earth Day 2014 Warheit launched a $21,000 fundraising drive for the new project, "Worse Than Poop!," at a kickoff party at the home of Palo Alto eco designer Sandra Slater.
She envisions it as a short, funny, animated feature narrated by her son Elliot, a Palo Alto third grader that will teach children about the science of climate change. Warheit herself is a trained presenter with Al Gore's Climate Reality Project.
"The idea came to me fully formed in my head," Warheit said Tuesday. "Carbon dioxide is a gas so you don't see it, it just floats around. So I thought, 'What if you could see it and see it as something objectionable, like poop?"
The analogy seemed so obvious "Buy Cheap Jintropin Online" to her she felt certain somebody already had made such a film.
"And yet nobody has," she said.
She hopes the project will help kids comprehend climate change "in a way that's humorous and lighthearted," she said. "If you just focus on the negative and you're too serious about it, people don't know what to do with that and they don't act.
"But we have to act. We don't have a choice. Our choice is to stick our heads in the sand and go down with the ship, or to "Anabola Steroider Norge Lagligt" look it in the face and say what we're going to do."
The film, Warheit said, will present alternatives "and there are tons of alternatives we just have to start choosing them."
Warheit, whose past film "Oxandrolone Powder India" projects have included in house videos for Stanford University and local corporations as well as a 2010 "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" documentary that aired on PBS, has shifted her own habits after studying climate science reports and reading books such as Mark Lynas's "Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet."
She rides her bicycle "everywhere" around Palo Alto and also owns a Fiat 500e. Her husband commutes daily by bicycle and Caltrain to South San Francisco.
For the upcoming film, Warheit and her son have already interviewed an array of clean transportation enthusiasts, including a manager of San Francisco's electric trolleys and a San Francisco mother who hauls two kids and groceries around the city on an Masteron E 200 electric assisted Xtracycle, a bike with an extra long rack.
She was heartened Tuesday at Elliot's elementary school drop off when, in honor of Earth Day, families were encouraged to walk, bike or carpool to school.
"Usually on a regular day there are cars lined up . but this morning there were almost no cars and the bike racks were full. So it is possible," she said. "We just have to do it a lot more."
I am so pleased that is planning to make this movie. She is dedicated to the challenge of global climate change, supports several local projects with the same goal of reducing polluting gasses, and is a fabulous ambassador for green living. I am disappointed to see a few who have responded negatively. for myself, I am inspired by those , like , who are willing to step out and do the work. (As an expert film maker she has lots of choices of the kind of films to dedicate her working life to. Many, as we know would be much more lucrative!)

Children intuitively understand why it's important to protect the environment and once equipped with more education on this subject they will be the biggest drivers for change. It takes time to change as we can observe in many domains such as gender/racial/sexual orientation equality and yet the generation of today has a mindset that often dramatically differs from 2 generations ago. This was achieved through political activism and education.
's movie will contribute to driving this change and the world will be a better place as a result.
This is not just about climate change, it's about health. Reducing emissions positively affects people's health at many levels. Wouldn't it be magical to drive your bicycle in Palo Alto without breathing toxic fumes?
I am supporting 's movie through Kickstarter and I encourage everyone to do the same!

I am delighted that Warheit, although she has an advanced degree from Stanford, has found a non intellectual way of making shockingly visual for us and our children, who will inherit this planet, the invisible serious unnatural build up of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. If unabated, this unnatural build up will in mere decades cause dangerous warming, dangerous weather changes and sea level rise, and the acidity of our oceans to reach levels not seen in 300 million years, in turn causing the progressive extinction of the calcifying organisms that are the basis of our ocean food chain. Oral Steroids Side Effects In Babies in 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone physical sciences, with a subsequent PhD in clinical psychology. Instead I invite you study the evidence for yourself, and chat with experts at Stanford, right next door to you. Therefore I wish to recommend to you to watch this video, in case you did not see this in early April on the San Francisco KGO ABC7 News report, about the IPCC's latest climate findings and projections. It includes a very concerned commentary from Dr. Terry Root of Stanford University. She was the colleague and wife of Masteron Winny Stack the late Dr. Stephen Schneider who was, climate adviser to five presidential administrations and, to me, a "Paul Revere" of climate change.
