“An Inconvient Truth” Receives the Best Documentary Oscar

At the 79th Academy Awards ceremony, Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth won Oscars for both best documentary and best song (“I Need to Wake Up” by Melissa Etheridge).

The former Vice President’s film about “the overriding world challenge of our time” (that would be global warming according to Gore, not poverty, terrorism, human trafficking, or any of the other issues which one might think are more deserving of that moniker) has convinced millions of people of the imminent destruction of the planet at the hands of evil carbon dioxide-producing humans. Alas, few people have been spurred to actually do anything about it.
