Eco-irony

If I want to see An Inconvenient Truth, the acclaimed new film about Al Gore's patient efforts to awaken Americans to the reality and danger of global warming, at its earliest opening in my state, I will have to drive at least 137 miles each way and burn from seven to nine gallons of gasoline.

If I want to see the film at a closer location a week later, I will still have to drive at least 70 miles each way and burn at least four gallons of gasoline.

Unless I get lucky and a local theater decides to bring the film in, I have to commit a small eco-crime if I want to show eco-support for this acclaimed eco-film on its opening eco-weekend.

Grrrrrrrrr.
