Oprah on Global Warming

Oprah WinfreyOprah touched on global warming on Monday and I missed it! In the program themed, Moms Around the World, Oprah interviewed Mary Swisher, an Inupiak Eskimo from Kotzebue, Alaska. On Oprah’s website, it focuses on how Mary’s family lives two months of the year in darkness and pays $8/gallon for milk that is flown in daily. But NewsBusters says that Oprah quickly shifted the conversation to global warming, encouraging everyone to see Al Gore’s  An Inconvenient Truth, coming out on DVD November 21. I wonder if anyone made the correlation to global warming and having food flown in. Though I can’t really talk, as most food that is on our plates has travelled 1500 miles to get there.

Oprah also looked into the crisis in Darfur during this program, looking at the situations for mothers in Sudan’s Abushok Refugee Camp. In addition, there is a special page set up for education on the crisis in Darfur on Oprah.com.
