LOS ANGELES - "An Inconvenient Truth," the documentary that turned former vice president Al Gore's power-point presentation on global warming into an engaging and entertaining film, won the Oscar Sunday night.
The best-documentary win was a triumph for Gore, who has kept a sense of humor about his loss in the 2000 election that was decided in George W. Bush's favor by a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
"I am Al Gore. I used to be the next president of the United States of America," Gore says in the film, repeating a line he has used often.
Sunday, Gore used the Oscar win not to further his political career but to boost his campaign to find solutions for global warming and other environmental problems.
"My fellow Americans," Gore said to laughter from the crowd. "People all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It's not a political issue, it's a moral issue. We have everything we need to get started with the possible will to act. That's a renewable resource. Let's renew it."

I thought it was a cartoon.
everywhere Algore shows up, there is cold weather, sometimes a blizzard, incredible coincidence?
yesterday at the Nascar race in SoCal everybody was wearing a parka - mid 50s and windy
God is speaking to us about global warming, LOL
"AND tonight's 'P.C. Whore and Hypocrite' Award is presented to Al Gore for his mockumentary...."
Gore had a movie?
The movie should be called "A Conventient Lie."
What was the basis for the Oscar?
Does he have to give it back when it's discredited in a few years?
Get with the program, it's now "Climate Change." The fearmongers have all the bases covered now.
>> It's not a political issue, it's a moral issue.
Well then, I guess it must be a relative issue.
Michael Moore didn't give his back after it was proved he doctored video.
Some day, not too far into the future, Hollyweird will look back on the Al Gore and Michael Moore awards and be embarrassed.
While we're all sure that Hollywood returned to their respective 20,000 sq ft mansions in their SUVs, it's also good to know that Mr. Gore shares Hollywood values.
For someone who says the sky is falling, he does very little. He says he recycles and drives a hybrid. And he claims he uses renewable energy credits to offset the pollution he produces when using a private jet to promote his film. (In reality, Paramount Classics, the film's distributor, pays this.)http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/editorials/2006-08-09-gore-green_x.htm
Public records reveal that as Gore lectures Americans on excessive consumption, he and his wife Tipper live in two properties: a 10,000-square-foot, 20-room, eight-bathroom home in Nashville, and a 4,000-square-foot home in Arlington, Va. (He also has a third home in Carthage, Tenn.) For someone rallying the planet to pursue a path of extreme personal sacrifice, Gore requires little from himself.
Al Gore supporters around me, get told to stop buying gas.
For someone rallying the planet to pursue a path of extreme personal sacrifice, Gore requires little from himself.
It is just more lying hypocrisy and sham from the left. So what else is new, right ??
Was there really any doubt that he would win? PUHLEEZE! I am proud to say I havent been in a movie theater in over ten years. Last night I watched Sands of Iwo Jima and Patton. Doesnt get any better than that. Except for maybe some Bon Bons.
They would have awarded "Triumph of the Will" as Best Documentary in 1935.
" he uses renewable energy credits to offset the pollution he produces when using a private jet "
There's nothing going to stop the pollution,
from Al Gore's private jet, no matter how many credits
Al Gore may actually recycle!
