The days of showing up to work and immersing yourself in the humdrum life behind cubicle walls (essentially nullifying your existence from the immediate world around you for 8 hours a pop) until you leave at 5pm are going the way of the dinosaur. Claustrophobia has never been cool, and the feeling of dread one gets from not interacting with the world around them has become unbearable, and this type of office environment stifles aspects of today's economy that are becoming increasingly important: collaboration and creativity.
Global warming. Is it a tragic scientific reality caused by careless consumption and disposal? Is it part of the Earth's natural evolutionary pattern? Is it a construct of bleeding-heart liberals set on vilifying the auto industry, Big Oil, tobacco, Aqua-Net and other potential pollutants?
Crispin, Porter and Bogusky's new video PSA puts the pointless debate into perspective, telling the world to just shut up and clean up. In the video, Alex Bogusky movingly likens the suspected causes of global warming -- pollution, toxic chemicals, and carbon emissions -- to leaving an empty pizza box on the ground, and leverages a powerful anti-pollution PSA of the past to illustrate his point. Take a look at the video, as posted on Adrants.
The bottom line is we shouldn't be arguing about the real or imagined effects of a heavy carbon footprint; we should be acknowledging that reducing its presence will make the world a cleaner place. Whether it's a pizza box, an exhaust pipe belching out black smoke, or a pitiful, oil-covered duck, pollution sucks, any way you slice it.
