Global Climate Change: Oscar Goes Green
Not only did "An Inconvenient Truth," win the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, but the issue of climate change and the environment was highlighted several times by Leo DiCaprio, Al Gore, award-winner Melissa Etheridge, and even host Ellen DeGeneres, who joked about recycling jokes from earlier in her career. Clearly the issue is de rigeur for Hollywood types. Let's hope that translates into greater support for solutions to the problem.
