Big Ideas For A Small Planet... Watch It This Tuesday

For those of you that don't know, this past winter and spring I spent working as an assistant editor on the show Big Ideas For A Small Planet, an environmental documentary series for the Sundance Channel.

Now, as much of a clusterfuck as the production was, admittedly the end product was incredibly good, and I'm ridiculously proud to have worked on the show (even with the Lexus sponsorship).

This Tuesday, Sundance will be showing the episode entitled "Pray." It's one of my absolute favorites, as it shows, without a doubt, that environmental concerns aren't just a concern created by hippie athiests, but an issue that even the most right-wing religious folk do and should care about.

There's a story about a Reverend preaching environmental care to elementary school children of different faiths and practices, a segment about a Southern Baptist woman opposing the evils of mountaintop removal coal mining, and a piece about a Florida based company that will literally use your dead ashes to bring life back to the coral reefs.

Anyway, the point is, this is a very good show, and I'd quite like to share it with the lot of you. It airs this Tuesday, July 10th, at 9pm EST/PST. Please watch it, TiVo it, share it with your friends, buy it off iTunes (the full series is only $20!), whatever. Just share the message.
