I want to watch this documentary > 

King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis,  best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, nitrogen fertilizers, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat — and how we farm.

Freeline has released a product(RED) version of their skates. >

“The Freeline team is stoked about the Product(RED) campaign. We love the idea of effecting change through sharing and have decided to give $15 per package of “Our Red” to the cause of helping orphans in Africa through >Raising Malawi< which works to remove poverty at seed level. ….. ” The Freeline team creates change in the action sports industry everyday, we are a company of change. Now our change will extend further then our industry”

These skates look like ton of fun (check out video) But I also have a feeling if you don’t know how to use them well,.. you’ll be losing some of your own (RED).

It’s been a really long time since I’ve heard > 

” If the world’s population were reduced to 100,.. it would look something like this”

What a powerful way of putting things in perspective and making sense of the 6.6 billion + humans on Earth. This video from miniature earth does a great job of showing what it would be like.

Who would you be if there were only 100 people on Earth?

White Christmas

Looks like President George “Dubya” Bush is the target of another creative video attacking his environmental policy. Some of you may remember the “Ice Kappa Melta” video we posted here on idUnited right after halloween. It was an instant classic. Well now it looks like the crew over at coolhunting have spotted the next classic video,.. with a holiday twist —>

A company called… Coldcut have applied their cut-and-paste ethic to critique George W. Bush’s environmental policy with devastating effect. Words spoken by the President have been manipulated to make it appear like he’s crooning along to “White Christmas,” but it’s juxtaposed with images that leave you in no doubt what Coldcut think.”

Happy Holidays!
