In 2007, Former Vice President Al Gore appeared at the academy award 79th ceremonies in Hollywood with fellow climate activist Leonardo DiCaprio.
But just before they walked on stage, the Oscar ceremony was touting the greening of the ceremony and how ordinary Americans can lower their impact on the planet and global warming.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer writing in Time Mag (On March 16, 2007) said his personal favorite was: “Ride mass transit.” On screen text or VO – “This to a conclave of Hollywood plutocrats who have not seen the inside of a subway since the moon landing and for whom mass transit means a stretch limo seating no fewer than 10.”
(Cimate Depot asks: Ride mass transit? This brings up an obvious question, when was the last time Gore or DiCaprio rode a city bus?)
