Global warming is tapping the cultural zeit geist, with 2006 on track to smash an all-time record for news attention (more on this soon), and various film and TV events trying to raise public attention to the issue. The latest, reports the Washington Post today
, is a Discovery Channel documentary slated for 9pm Sunday night, hosted by Tom Brokaw. And if Inconvenient Truth
is setting records in terms of revenue for a science film, stay tuned for the fall, when Leonardo DiCaprio releases his 11th Hour documentary
on the environment.
