An Inconvenient Truth

Today we saw "An Inconvenient Truth" at the Osio in Monterey. A fine film. Not so much cinema, as an important message using that medium. I read "Earth in the Balance" about a decade ago, and clearly this film is a continuation of Gore's life work, which is more than mere politics. He was using politics then just as he is using the media now: to launch a national debate on global warning. He's a true American hero, someone who brings hope and dignity to a nation that for six years now has been dragged through Neoconservative sludge.

Bush may be the "Decider", but in the real world that most Americans live in, Gore is a true leader.
