LOS ANGELES: “An Inconvenient Truth,” the documentary that turned former vice president Al Gore’s power-point presentation on global warming into an engaging and entertaining film won the Oscar for best documentary. Gore did shock the audience when he stated the source of global warming was not carbon emissions.
In his acceptance speech Gore outlined several steps the Bush administration could take immediately to reduce the effects of global warming. According to Gore, if Dick Cheney reduced his bloviating to 40 hours a week the US could meet the Kyoto accord by the end of George W. Bush’s term as President.
Gore also recommended that The President, karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales could also contribute by “by just shutting up for once.” Gore also took time to mock George W. Bush. “Tonight I have an oscar in my hands, The President has the blood of Iraq on his.”
The Oscar win was a triumph for Gore, who has kept a sense of humor about his loss in the 2000 presidential election debacle that was decided in George W. Bush’s favor by a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
Gore also took his own advice and kept his speech to 3 minutes, in the interest of Global warming.
