Thought I’d take a moment to feather my own nest by urging everyone to go see The 11th Hour, a film bankrolled, produced and narrated by actor Leonardo DiCaprio about Mankind’s effect on the biosphere and what can be done about it. Dozens of luminaries in a host of fields are featured, including my boss, mad scientist Paul Stamets. The film is as much about solutions as it is about problems, which makes it somewhat unique in the genre. The entire Fungi Perfecti crew will be at the debut this Friday at the Egyptian Theater, including myself and Margaret. Paul will be taking part in a Q&A session afterwards. If anyone is interested, feel free to show up; it should be a good time.

EDIT: The Stranger’s review of the film is pretty positive:

The concrete and warring policy proposals that crowd the end of the film are exactly what you were thirsting for at the end of An Inconvenient Truth. This isn’t just a good movie; it’s a smart one. And that’s about the highest praise I can give.

Yay Earth!

    Hi Pluggy…how exciting! But, as for the “feathering,” what, are you getting a cut of the theater admissions?! And BTW….is that your hefty boot crunching down on little old Earth? Most dramatic! most scary!

    Well, my boss is featured prominently in the film, along with many others. Can’t do anything but help our business. In fact, we may be in for the most profitable–and stressful–Christmas season of our lives, if this flick really takes off…. 😯
