World Environmental Day Premiere Of Home

"Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace." -Albert Schweitzer, one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century and Nobel Peace Prize winner for his philosophy of Reverence for Life

Today Home, a documentary by environmental activitist and humanitarian Yann Arthus-Bertrand, premieres in 127 countries. The documentary centers on humanity's growing impact on the planet. In the U.S. it will be shown on the National Geographic channel, in select movie theaters and on the web. This ties into our discussions about sustainable economics which will be a substantial economic driver at some point in the future. Probably at least a decade from today but in its various forms, it will almost assuredly be a driver of tens of millions of jobs in the U.S. alone touching everything from healthcare to capital equipment to software to homebuilding to transportation to energy to chemicals and on and on.
