Hunger Activists Want Al Gore to Make Another Movie, but there isn’t any money to be made out of Global Starving
By the blogowner, honestclimate, February 14, 2009
An interesting article caught my eye today, from YahooNews, titled:
“Hunger Activists Want Al Gore to Make Another Movie”.
Here’s an excerpt from the article
From a distance, it looks like an ordinary movie poster. Pasted to a bus shelter wall along Madrid’s central Calle Segovia, it depicts a thin child, looking upward toward credits printed in that look-at-me font that film publicity posters always seem to use. It’s only when you get close enough to read the title credits that you realize something is amiss. “‘Ask Al Gore,”” one passerby queried his companion. “That’s the name of a movie?”
Not exactly. It’s the name of an advertising campaign designed to get Al Gore to make a movie – only not about what you think. By collecting enough signatures through their website http://www.askalgore.org , an international NGO, called Action Against Hunger, hopes to persuade the former-vice-president-turned-climate-change-activist to take on the issue of acute malnutrition, a remediable problem, the organization says, that each year kills 5 million children in the developing world.
Reading further, note the response from Gore’s office..
Gore has yet to respond according to Action Against Hunger. “We hope that when we launch the U.S. campaign, he’ll invite us for a meeting,” says Nonzioli. “That would be great.” But at his office in Nashville, Tennessee, a spokesperson for Mr. Gore said the former vice president was currently busy with the stimulus package. “They want him to put aside climate change and switch to world hunger?” she asked, somewhat incredulously. Informed that the organizers hoped that he would add the issue to his list of concerns, she conceded a bit. “It’s quirky, but I have to admit it’s a good idea.”
Let me translate the response of Gore’s office above:-
Sorry, there’s no money to be made out of Global Starving. Also, it’s not like Al Gore actually takes man-made global warming seriously. If he did, he wouldn’t have a carbon footprint the size of Africa. Let them eat cake!
