Al Gore plugs sci-fi thriller that’s aiding climate campaign

Al Gore is giving two thumbs up to the new science fiction thriller "Inception" that stars fellow environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio – a film that is aiding one of Gore’s climate change advocacy groups.

Proceeds from the film’s July 13 premiere in Los Angeles went to the Gore-founded Alliance for Climate Protection, which is pressing Congress to approve legislation that caps greenhouse gas emissions.

“I have never recommended a movie before on algore.com, but I am making an exception this weekend for a movie that I had an opportunity to see when it premiered in Los Angeles last Tuesday: ‘Inception,’” Gore, the former vice president, wrote on his website Friday afternoon. He also tweeted the recommendation.

“Do yourself a favor and see it! It is, in my opinion, a real work of genius by the writer and director, Chris Nolan, with brilliant performances – especially by my friend and fellow environmentalist, Leo DiCaprio – incredible special effects, and a truly great musical score by Hans Zimmer,” he added.

Gore admits he’s not an impartial observer: “Warner Brothers devoted the proceeds from the ‘Benefit Premiere’ to the Alliance for Climate Protection – so you could say I am biased,” he notes. But Gore adds: "This movie really is one of the best, most entertaining, and most thought-provoking I can ever remember seeing."

The film is receiving good reviews and, according to Entertainment Weekly, took in over $21 million Friday when it opened nationwide and could earn $60 million over its first three days.

DiCaprio has for years worked with environmental groups such as the Natural Resources Defense Council and the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

Great. It seems like I can't read a single headline anymore without seeing double entendre everywhere. I HATE that.


I now blame both Al Gore and Bill Clinton for global pervert change.
