The best environmental film ever made

From 1968, the best environmental film ever made--"Pass Creek." This 10 minute film was the center of a successful campaign to reform bad logging practices in the US northwest. Worth highlighting this week, during debate over perhaps the worst environmental film ever made, No Pressure (link removed because this film is soooooo-o-o bad).

Pass Creek was made by a team, inspired by my friend Frank Moore, and Frank barnstormed around the US in his private plane showing the film. Frank is called the father of the first forest protection law in the United States, passed in Oregon in 1971.
