I met John Liu at the Water Symposium and he was a totally inspiring guy. I don't usually have much time for time for journalists but this guy really drove home that anyone involved in spreading information of any kind had an absolute duty to always give the most accurate, truthful and complete information they possibly could. He also said that if different groups of people get different information, they will reach different conclusions, but if all the information gets to all the people, they should be able to all reach the best conclusion.

So I'm tipping my hat to this guy.

Very reminiscent of a younger David Suzuki. The message is critical!

Does anyone know if this is a dvd to buy or something I can download and watch with family member's on a tv? I can't seem to find a site it all leads to other sites who are linking the youtube video. Youtube video's are great but when you get something good that's an hour or over it's nice to be able to sit down over dinner to it.

the video has been "taken off line"

it was on the "aussie" site and then dissappeared
there it was mentioned the the video was going to be shown at the Rio+20 meeting next month
maybe it will be released after that

it appears to be an update and expansion of this video (most of this is in it)
the new video also includes an interview with Geoff Lawton
