SlowTV for a Fast Plane

British Airways is offering its passengers an unusual in-flight entertainment option: SlowTV.  Specifically, a seven hour long video of a train ride from Bergen to Oslo (Norway).  Boring, yet relaxing and actually a pretty good idea for a long plane flight!  I hadn’t heard of Slow TV before, but if you search YouTube you’ll find quite a bit of this.  My favorite has to be an hour long video of a tropical beach…I’ll embed it below for your viewing enjoyment while I let it play on my second monitor. 🙂

Speaking of going slow, the Kona Brewing Company made a nice commercial about ‘single tasking’, doing just one thing for a change.  I like it!

 

Why climate change scares me

If you want to know why I feel the way I do about climate change, watch this video from a TEDx conference two years ago:

The speaker talks about the path we’re on, where it’s headed, and what that really means for us.  He paints a pretty dire picture…and it’s worth noting that this video is two years old.  In that time, there’s been no action taken, and no science found to refute these conclusions…yet we remain mired in place, unable to embrace the science and take action.
