"Nature never did betray the heart that loved her." Wordsworth
Everyone on Earth should see Earth, a Disney documentary so beautiful and poignant that it should be as well known as Bambi, and more important. Important because it glamorously reminds us of nature's seasonal spectacle, the Darwinian playing fields for animals in the long food chain and that global warming may be a canary in the cave for this splendor.

Columbus, OH – Carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming are driving power companies to a decision. They can move away from burning coal altogether...or they can work on technology to eliminate their C-O-2 emissions...someday. While they're making that decision, some of the nation's oldest, dirtiest coal-burning power plants still run. In the final part of our series on the future of coal, Shawn Allee looks at why they billow dangerous air pollution...stuff most people think we cleaned up long ago.
Columbus, OH – President Obama wants the U-S to reduce the greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide that contribute to global warming. Congress is considering a carbon cap-and-trade program.

Columbus, OH – The coal industry got hit with expensive pollution restrictions almost two decades ago. Now, the government's considering putting a price on carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming. Coal companies think they have a technological solution in a test project called FutureGen.

Lobbyists for the coal industry and environmentalists are conducting campaigns for and against the use of coal. In the first of a five-part series on the future of coal, Lester Graham reports.
"At this point in my life, I feel like I could destroy some mother------s!" Ronnie (Seth Rogen)
Seth Rogen's Ronnie Barnhardt in Observe and Report is more deranged than the loser slackers of Miss March and actually generates fewer laughs. This pathological rent-a-cop head of mall security is so clueless that he pastes the picture of a mall streaker's penis on his forehead without the faintest notion that he is establishing himself as a d---head.
"The blues was like that problem child that you may have had in the family. You was a little bit ashamed to let anybody see him, but you loved him. You just didn't know how other people would take it." BB King
