Transcript of The Story of Stuff

The Story of Stuff Extraction Production Distribution Consumption Disposal EXTRACTION "In the past three decades we consumed 1/3 of the planets natural resource" From the research I did i found that 2/3 of the world's natural resources are consumed. PRoduction "Dioxin is the most toxic man made substance known to science." I have found that this is a true fact, according to the article I read "Dioxin is 60 thousand times more toxic than cyanide: a dose of only 50 micrograms of dioxin is lethal for human being." Distribution "Out of the 100 economies on earth now, 51 are corporations." This is not a true statement, from the information i found the real number is 37. For example Exxon is the biggest corporation of all and it is still only 1/200th the size of the U.S. economy. Consumption "75% of global fisheries are fished at or beyond capacity." This is untrue she does not break it down like she should, from the information I found 24% of their fisheries are over exploited or depleted. 52% are being fished at or near capacity, but it still means that fish stocks aren't going up or down there is no loss. Disposal "Each person makes an average of 4.5 lbs of trash a day." After researching i found that the actual number is 4.4 lbs but she was just rounding up. This does prove her fact correct. Another Way Annie Leonard has a good point with her film. Yes all of her ideas are good thoughts but my main concern with Leonard is how biast she can be. The people of earth should help to make the world cleaner and try and keep it around as long as we possibly can. For future refernce Leonard should be less broad with her facts and not so biast, i think she could have a big impact. Another Way Production & Presentation By: Seth Snyder
