This is a rough edit that I compiled from our raw footage for personal use and enjoyment. IT IS NOT PERFECT, there are a handful of known editing and continuity errors that do not affect the interview.

"Give a Damn?" is a feature length documentary about two idealist activists who convince their friend, who is uncertain about his responsibility to care about the poor, to immerse himself in poverty traveling through the US, Europe, and Africa living on $1.25 a day!
We filmed the main portion of our movie from July 5th 2009- roughly thanksgiving of that year. While in Nairobi Kenya, filming aerial footage of the Kibera slum, our plane crashed. The pilot and co-pilot were killed in the crash, Dan and I, obviously, survived.
I (Rob) am an Atheist, Dan is a Christian
We became friends at a church in Chesterfield, MO, where we eventually both became leaders of the high school ministry. After struggling with doubt, I left the church and eventually gave up all belief and became an atheist. Dan continued as a youth leader, and we still remained close friends.

Nigeria's lucrative oil reserves may have enriched its politicians but they've brought little but misery to ordinary people. Now, a rebel group is fighting for a share of the profits. "I need help. I need help," begs a woman, clutching her young children in despair. Her home has just been demolished to create luxury housing for foreign oil workers. "The oil boom has turned into the oil doom!" laments Pastor Lekia. Across the Niger Delta, there's growing resentment at the oil industry. "Corruption pervades the whole place, starting with the way contracts are awarded," complains lawyer Ledum Mittee. "There seems to be some sort of collusion between the oil companies and those in power." But militia leader Asari Dokubo has vowed to sever that link. He's fighting to seize control of the oil and give it back to the people. "We own the oil!" he proclaims. "The thieves are the people in Abuja." And across Nigeria, young men are flocking to his call. Last September, he spooked the international markets and forced the price of oil to $50 a barrel by threatening to attack foreign oil companies. The government was forced to agree a truce but he's threatened to rearm unless oil companies leave. Nigerians no longer expect help from their own government. It's militia leaders like Asari who are winning their trust.

The group, calling itself the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, says the crisis of climate change is exaggerated and may be a ploy to keep Africa in poverty. Ntv's Joe Ageyo reports on the climate skeptics that are struggling to be heard in Durban.

Truth is every man, woman, & child in the whole world could have about 1 acres of land to themselves & it would all fit into a land mass the size of North America, with the rest of the world completely unoccupied.
Total land area of North America (including Central America and the Caribbean): 24,486,305 km² (6,050,697,738 acres)
Average population density of North America: 21.0 persons per square kilometer (11.77 acres per person)
Total population of Earth 6,553,289,000
Average population density of Earth: 44.0 persons per square kilometer (5.62 acres per person)
6,050,697,738 acres of North America / the total world population of 6,553,289,000 = 0.93.. acres per person (not families mind you, that would take up less land maas)
