Video: Home

See the full 93 minute film here.

I had some interesting discussions about sustainability this week at the SC09 committee meetings--things like how do we even have this discussion when our clusters are such power hungry beasts? And with all this Al Gore keynote business, are we emphasizing this topic too little or too much?

And then I saw this film and shared it's conclusion-- the time for pessimism has indeed passed. Only through sustainable technologies like renewable energy does this planet stand a chance.

That's going to require the best minds, the best science, the best supercomputing we as community can provide. Let's get on with it.
