Global Warming 

Going to see the premiere of Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" tonight and then to an after-party with the producer. Should be interesting.

Yesterday I was at an event for this new group 3650 that is putting eco-friendly messages in cartoons and animation to help educate the masses about climate change and global warming. The group includes some of the top animators from cartoons like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the Family Guy and the Simpsons. Al Gore is also involved with this project.

Global warming is definitely a popular issue right now. So is Al Gore. Seems like he's peaking right now. Heard he was treated like a movie star at the Cannes Film Festival.

Some say Gore could have won the 2000 election (won by more I should say) if he had talked about his passion, the environment, instead of listening to his consultants who told him it was a dead issue.

Not only is it an issue that cuts across party lines but it also may have helped loosen him up to talk about something he was truly passionate about. But hindsight is always 20/20.
