Bad news, good news
Today, the Washington Post ran a sad story about the hole over the Arctic. They showed the scene above, taken during a 2005 visit by Jake Gyllenhaal and Salma Hayek to the Arctic village of Iqaluit. The actors were there to bring attention to the problem of global warming. Despite warnings from scientists and environmentalists, disaster still looms. The sad state of the environment did lead to something positive however. I discovered these wonderful pictures of Jake on a website for a company involved in the project.
I also found a brief clip of Jake and Salma, from the movie Everything's Cool, a documentary about global warming:
I don't think the movie got very good reviews. Has anyone seen the whole thing?
