As many of you may know, “An Inconvenient Truth” won an Oscar last night for Best Documentary along with Musician and songwriter Melissa Etheridge winning Best Song Oscar for “I Need To Wake Up,” the theme song for “An Inconvenient Truth.” She triumphed over three original songs from the show business musical “Dreamgirls.”
I really thought Melissa Etheridge summed it up nicely, “I have to thank Al Gore for inspiring me, showing me that caring about the Earth is not Republican or Democrat, it’s not red or blue. We are all green. We can be the generation that woke up and did something.”
Also, this year for the first time, the Academy Awards were carbon neutral. Meaning renewable energy credits were purchased to offset carbon emissions from the pre-show, the red-carpet event, the Oscar telecast, and the Governors’ Ball.
