    There's a hole in the ozone bigger than Antarctica, that we created.

    There's a garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean twice the size of Texas, that we created.

    Last summer there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico the size of the state of Maryland, that we created.

    There are 6 nuclear reactors in Japan that have failed and are pouring out radiation.

    We have increased atmospheric CO2 by 40% in the last 200 years. Atmospheric CO2 is now at the highest level ever recorded, and the Anarctica ice core record goes back 600,000years. We will add another 1,000 billion tons of CO2 to the atmosphere in the next 100 years.

    We are changing the planet, my friends.

    funny how an area like the Gul of Mexico, which is used to dealing with oil leakage, has basically recovered from the largest spill ever in less than a year.

    The Earth will do what it has been doing long before we were ever here.

    Don't forget the 7,000 sq. mi. dead zone in the G.O.M.

    I wanted to find a clip of "The Simpsons" where Burns runs a fire drill at the plant and there was a man running in a small circle breathlessly panicked breathing "Firefirefirefirefirefire". But this will have to do.
