Amusing Monday: Videos pitch the need to changeAugust 30th, 2010 by cdunagan
Here are a couple of public-service-type videos that have been suggested to me for Amusing Monday.
I’m actually off duty today, as my schedule shifts around at the Kitsap Sun during the month of September, when I’ll be taking my turn working the weekends. While the change in schedule could reduce my attention to Water Ways, I’m hoping it won’t make much difference.
As for these videos, the first is a pitch for low-impact cleaning products to reduce toxic chemicals going into our state’s waterways. This Department of Ecology video is produced in the style of a TV commercial for products used in the home.
The second video, from Monterey Bay Aquarium, is an off-beat
cartoon that raises the question of adaptation among species in the
face of climate change. The message is that sealife can adapt if
given enough time. But the current rate of change demands that
people take action.
