Has anyone dared to see "An Inconvenient Truth" yet? I can't bear to, though apparently it tries to end on a hopeful note.

Not yet. I'd like to, but I share your misgivings. I suspect we know most of it already, given the discussions on this blog. Trivia fact: it was produced by Larry David's wife.

Yes, I do feel that it's moving rapidly up the agenda of liberal America, and events in California have been encouraging. However, I've no sense at all that it has permeated into the mid-west meatheads who actually determine American politics. (And depressingly, the Republicans have apparently rallied in the polls off the back of falling oil prices and Bin Laden videos)
