gore_diaz.jpgEarlier this fall, after the discussions surrounding Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ began to sink in, the former VP announced that he would take a portion of the profits from the film and train approximately 1,000 volunteers to continue spreading his presentation around the globe. Well, the training has finally started; and in Nashville, Tennessee last week, surrounded by scientists and former politicians, Gore also enlisted the help of Cameron Diaz. We’ve had some people who were there write in and say that Diaz is being trained alongside them to give the presentation to schools, communities, and everyone else in between. Could it have been ice core data and temperature fluctuation discussions at the dinner table that caused her and Justin to split?

Anyways, if you would like a good read into what’s going on behind the scenes, take a look at some blog entries here, here, and here. Apparently, organizers have stated that despite what the website is saying, applications are still being accepted for those interested in becoming a volunteer. Wanna spread a little “truth”? Hit up Gore’s site, ClimateCrisis.net and find out more.

    Does it get any better than this?

    Now if only she’d get on Lester Brown’s bandwagon as well. Like Gore, only smarter and with a better sense of the big picture.
