Monday Moaning

It may well be New Years Eve (at least here in Brazil) but I have been watching videos and looking at photos from around the world.

Just because it’s New Year, doesn’t mean I can’t have a Moan!

Here is an example, New Year’s fireworks display from Copacabana Beach last year. Sixteen minutes of fireworks (the clip is just 1:22).


Did you watch until the end? Did you see the amount of pollution that was pumped into the atmosphere, all that carbon?

Here we are in the midst of critical irreversible climate changes and we still do this…

Imagine the collective carbon and pollution from celebrations all around the world.

We aren’t serious about wanting to survive, are we?

“But it’s New Year!” goes up the collective shout.

What’s to celebrate if there are no people around?

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 22,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 5 Film Festivals
