Just saw the video. I think it could /should have been about 1 1/2 hrs long to really cover the subject. But it does a really good job on the overview.

And, while we have a certain level of specific interest, didn't some of the other areas pique your interest to learn more (ie computer obsolescence, pollution) about that aspect.

But it would have been nice to have about 10 seconds of cars filling bigbox parking lots and driving down freeways.

Weirdly, when Annie was talking about the growth of consumerism in the 50's I remembered late 50's early 60's 'math' lessons about using credit, how checkbooks work. But how long was it before science classes talked about _ Silent Spring _?
