Speaking of the end of the world, I saw Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth last week, and I have to say it’s the best film to come out this year, hands down. It’s fascinating enough just to see the return of the pre-VP Al Gore (charming, funny, engaging, and passionate as hell), but more importantly it’s an amazing and illuminating film which would be required viewing in every school in the world if I had my way. No matter your feelings about Al Gore, you have to admit this guy knows what the hell he’s talking about when it comes to climate change and global warming.
Watch the trailer here, or you can learn more about the film (and what you can do about Global Warming) via it’s website. With all seriousness, I can’t recommend this film strongly enough. If nothing else, go just to make yourself feel bad that we got stuck with Stumbles McDumbass delivering the State of the Union address, when we could (should) have had ‘em delivered by a literate, intelligent, and reasonable human being. Way to go, Florida. Next time try to not pick the guy who’ll gut your hurricane relief over the guy who was part of the administration that made FEMA an effective organization.
I’d also recommend keeping an eye out for Who Killed the Electric Car? (watch the trailer or visit the movie site), which asks why currently available technology is being kept from the public, and why GM and Ford recalled and destroyed their highly popular electric cars after only a token appearance on the market.
