I am old enough to remember learning about plate tectonics in college, when students were still cautioned that it was a controversial proposition. I was incredulous that something so brilliantly, obviously true could still be considered unproven. However, there have been many theories that were treated as heretical when first unveiled - gravity, evolution, the origin of ulcers, and the dangers of tobacco smoking all come to mind. It is my hope that someday soon, the notion - that spewing poisons known to be toxic to vegetation into the atmosphere at ever increasing rates must and has achieved a threshold that is intolerable to trees - will become crystal clear as well. It is in that spirit that I made the film. Please follow the links, and leave any questions in the comments, or email me at email@example.com.
