being inconvenient pays

We all know that Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" is amazing, but I just learned that it grossed $49 million and that it is the fourth-highest-grossing documentary film to date in the United States, after Fahrenheit 9/11, March of the Penguins and Sicko. I only watched Fahrenheit 9/11 and Al Gore's film.

He received two academy awards for it, but that's not what I want to talk about. I encourage everyone to go see it, even if you are a green person who spent the last three decades saving wildlife and studying the environment.

The movie is entertaining, it is filled with accurate and scientific facts, it made me think, alot.

Big surprise... Hollywood lefties give lefty film makers high praise and academy awards. Seriously... was there any chance Al Gore would not have received an academy award?

BTW, yes I agree that global warming exists and that it is caused by humans. I just have zero faith that politicians are competent to do anything about it. i.e. They lower the speed limit to 55 for a negligible improvement in air quality while giving smoke spewing refineries a free pass.
