    you need to find a way to watch this soon. Did you see the first one?  I'd like to say that this one is even better.

    The people, all the people he talks with (and it might have been easier to get people to do interviews this time since he has some notoriety) were just like us.  They are just befuddled and quietly angry at what is happening to the country.  Some of them just have to up and leave their homes.  

    And this lie, the way it's being sold as America independent of foreign oil and all that... it's just bullshit.  The prices that the gas is fetching in Asia is much much higher than here and LG ports are being built all over the world.  It's a giant last ditch effort of Big Oil and Gas to extract every damn thing they possibly can as alternative energy starts to take hold.

    One guy that Josh interviewed did a broad study on alternative energy.  Wind, solar, tidal, waves, geothermic, hydroelectric.  He said that we've got enough energy in wind alone to provide for the world's energy needs 5 times over.

    A more granular study shows that in all or most places a combination of various forms of alternative will easily provide for our needs.He said we don't need oil, gas, coal, none of it.

    None of it.

    I look at that ocean all the time. On a sunny, breezy day on the beach there is so much energy.  So much energy.

    Anyway, I ended up watching it on the computer.  My kids know how to set up HBOGO, so my son gave me his comcast email password (that I set up for him when he was a toddler, lol). My comcast account, hell it's something they assigned to me and I haven't used it for a decade so I don't even know what it is. I guess I should get on the ball.  So I watched it on the computer after all that.
