agreed! this is great! i've pieced together most of the content through years of work and reading lots of books. so it just shows how handy this is to put it all together in a captivating way. great for a high school class or a group just getting hip to the fact that there's a big 'problem' with all sorts of seemingly unrelated things. they Are related. sums it up quite nicely.

This is a great site. I ran across it some time back but had forgotten about it. I have always believed that we are a society obsessed with stuff. I wonder if more people realized how bad this problem is if they would change their ways.

Good, old George, R.I.P. He's always able to gist any subject in a hilarious manner.

Interesting Yes! magazine update from Annie Leonard: she's been receiving threats and been called "un-American" for making this video.
 
I got this tall by not having enough crisco in my diet as a kid. This ad looks like it had plenty of shortening:
