The one thing about having Tivo is that I sometimes get a bit lazy, and don’t keep up with some of my shows as much as I would like. This leads me to post about some things well after the fact. The good thing is, that if I still feel it is worth posting about a week later, it might be a bit more long term important than would otherwise be the case.
Now that I am done explaining… John Kerry was on The Daily Show recently, promoting a book he wrote with his wife called This Moment on Earth: Today’s New Environmentalists and Their Vision for the Future.Â Now as Jon Stewart noted, some people may be put off by the fact that it is 250 pages with “no pictures.”Â Now, I was of course immediately impressed with the fact that this goes beyond some of the more standard environmental issues, as Senator Kerry points out (albeit the message got a bit lost), an example of how Factory Farming affects our water supplies and such.Â I will be picking up the book this weekend and reviewing it… soon. (No Honestly… I will find some time for it.)
It really was a decent interview.Â And it was fun as Stewart points out that obviously Kerry and his wife were working on this project for quite some time, and pokes fun of the fact that “Gore got there first” with An Inconvenient Truth, and sort of makes Kerry appear as a “me too” kind of add on to the environmental cause, but that it simply isn’t true.
For those that didn’t see it, the Interview is below the fold.
