Another few hours in front of imovie has produced the following montage of biking across Wisconsin. The music in the background is provided by Peter Mulvey, a musician who biked with us out of Milwaukee.
In addition to scenery of us biking and camping across Wisconsin, we share one fact about global warming: over 20% of all known species of plants and animals may be at risk to extinction due to global warming (source: the IPCC’s recent report). This would radically transform the natural world, and it would be a major tragedy. Think about it – one out of every five species of birds, plants, animals, gone. Why should we accept this?
We end the film with a practical suggestion from one person we stayed with in La Crosse, WI – change a lightbulb to a more efficient bulb. It saves you money, and will result in power plants putting less carbon dioxide into the atmopshere. It will lessen global warming.
And of course, there is bonus material at the end of our film. Watch below.
