snipshot_e4g65vtg3wi.jpgYes, climate change may now be unavoidable — not because we’re belching more than ever into the atmosphere, but because permafrost is melting and releasing massive amounts of CO2 right along with us. But, that’s not the only thing it’s releasing. Oh no. Have you ever heard of Killer Permafrost Possums? I hadn’t either, but after watching this short from AtomFilms, I could care less about hurricanes. These critters are nasty!

Placing humor in a topic seriously in need of some, the creators of this film weave a bloody 3-minute tale of the deadly consequences of global warming. From the film’s MySpace Page,

“Scott Waters, the world’s leading possumologist, is working alone in a remote sector of the Alaskan wilderness. He’s been trying to warn the world of the furry menace about to be released because of global warming… but it may already be too late.”

Gripping, right? The film was 100% offset through 3 Phases Energy Services making it the first carbon-neutral short web film. As their marketing states, “To calculate your carbon emissions and find out how you can stop the killer possums from thawing out, please visit the 3 Phases website.” Seriously. After living in New Zealand for a few years, I can attest to the fact that possums are not friendly. Killer possums look even less so. Do what you can — watch this film — and pray the world figures out a way to prevent us from going the way of the Dinosaurs…via the possums.
