Three excellent and important 5 minute videos

Astounding images of apparently empty space filled with thousands of galaxies billions of light-years away. A four-minute 3-D movie released by NASA,  of images from the far edges of the universe.  It took 10 days of exposure for the images to appear on the photographic plate – photons that had travelling for 13 billion years.

The activist group Just Foreign Policy has made a short video to help publicize the McGovern bill and the importance of a timetable for military withdrawal from Afghanistan. Watch it and spread it.

These arial images of the spreading oil slick will sicken and dismay you – but I think you’ll agree it’s important for as many people as possible to see it – to galvanize them to action. Bill McKibben has said that this could be Obama’s opportunity to turn the tables on the powerful oil industry and support a radical change of course away from fossil fuels.
