The Persona Behind The Lens, With A Glimpse Into Our World.
Photographer: Anita Cross
Photographer Anita Cross & husband "Llama"
Amusing stories of travels throughout Oregon's beautiful–and sometimes not-so-accessible–scenic areas, from the perspective of a not-so-athletic photographer.
"This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while, extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to meditate"

UPDATE: This video is now only available as a series of nine shorter videos. I’ve found it on both YouTube and MySpace. Here are the YouTube Search Results for Great Global Warming Swindle.

I like to tell stories with my blog, entertain with anecdotes about camping or hiking (and other misadventures) as I attempt to get photographs of out of the way places the masses otherwise won’t see.

Stories take time to write, and since becoming self-employed, I haven’t had much time for my own pursuits. So my blog goes months without a new post, even though nearly every day I tell myself I need to make the time ‘today’.

Today is Sunday, allegedly my ‘day of rest’, and I stumbled upon a video on Google Video that I just have to share. You see, I’ve never bought into the Global Warming as man-made disaster camp, so I was delighted to discover a BBC documentary that debunks the politically correct views.

Personally, I think it is incredibly arrogant of man to believe that anything we do in the course of living our everyday lives can have such far-reaching effects on the planet. That doesn’t mean I’m for pollution, or anything like that, though.

I believe we have a responsibility to be good stewards of our planet and the environment. And nobody bristles more than I at the garbage I see along our roadways. I always leave a trail or camp cleaner than when I found it.

Anyway, here’s the video. It’s long, over an hour, and you’ll need the Flash Player installed to see it. But if you’re interested in an opposing point of view to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”, you’ve found it.

(The complete video is no longer available. See Update above.)

Feel free to leave comments and opposing points of view are welcome (English only, please.) However, I moderate all comments and any comment which is disrespectful (flame), uses crude language or attempts to spam my blog will not be approved.
