Manche Hundefreunde benützen die Entsorgungssäckchen doch... Davon landen nur sehr viele gefüllt doch in der nächsten Wiese oder im Kanal. Oder wie hier: Spaßvögel reißen die gesamten Säckle aus der Station und lassen sie vom Winde verwehen.

Papierbecher

Jeden Tag werden in der Mensa Papierbecher für das gratis Wasser verwendet. Meist sogar aufwendig bedruckt. Und das, obwohl eigentlich genügen Gläser vorhanden wären.

Mülltrennen

Der Müll wird leider viel zu wenig getrennt.

Richtig trennen?

Soll man Wurstverpackungen vorher waschen oder nicht?

Documentarians always have their own points of view, but Michael Moore takes what he needs to convince his audience of his political opinion. Moore produced this film with the explicit goal to prohibit the reelection of George Bush. The Movie is filled with controversy. As footage he used many cuts of tv-news and ‚personal‘ interviews made by himself with a big portion of dry sarcasm.
The title of the film refers to Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451, a view of the future United States, drawing an analogy between the burning temperature of paper and the date of the September 11 attacks.
