It's truth, and AC makes it convenient.
Dear Schrodinger's Kitten readers,
Wow. It is hot.
Just thought I'd get that out of the way.
This is Al Gore. I used to be the next president of the United States. On a totally unrelated subject, I suggest you beat the heat by seeing 'An Inconvenient Truth'...a nice documentary about me, Al Gore. Sara and B saw it, and both give it a thumbs up. B thought it was a bit 'political' but honestly, it's about me, and how can you do a documentary about me and not even mention the presidential thing. I did carry Florida, you know. Kind of a burn to not be your Prez now. No worries. I'm over it.
My film is an unabashed attempt to try and change the direction of the planet's fate. I have been talking -- and thinking -- about global warming for 30 years. There are lots of scary graphics about this topic in my film, most you've never seen before. They'll scare the bejesus out of you. You'll walk out of the theater talking to your seat-mates about what you can do, and how soon this is going to happen. Not even as distant as your children's lifetimes -in your lifetime! Ocean currents, Katrina, ice ages, science and politics. And they all are related. Sometimes you just have to accept the truth about things you don't want to hear. Global Warming. Not being President. It's all the circle of life.
And for those who fear it's a political film, let me assure you it's not. Heated molecules don't move to the right or left; they simply rise, because physics is not partisan or ideological.
Please go check it out, and there's some spiffy flyers at your theater indicating things you can do to help. Simple things. Like elect people that care about the environment. Not that I'm being 'political' or anything.
