Al Gore on Oprah!

Mr. "Inconvenient Truth" himself was on Oprah this week spreading the word about the dangers of global warming and climate change. Given that when Oprah picks a book for her book club, it immediately becomes a bestseller, we can only hope that having Al Gore showcased on her show will turn on the compact fluorescent lights in the minds of her legions of fans.

You can find information about this at Oprah's website, along with ideas for things that you can do. One of my favorite pages lists how your can combat global warming when you go to the grocery store:

  • Instead of regular aluminum foil or plastic wrap, purchase recycled aluminum foil
  • Look for items without extensive packaging
  • Bring a cloth bag to the grocery store instead of using its plastic bags
  • Buy local and organic.

Hopefully, Oprah will help push the message of "An Inconvenient Truth" into the mainstream. If you have not seen the movie, it is out on DVD and can be purchased at
