Al Gore's famous keynote presentation is already a book, Oscar-winning movie and popular topic of debate. So what more could Gore want? Jeeez, the presidency?

Following in the footsteps of such epic films as The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and Legally Blonde The Musical, An Inconvenient Truth will soon "hit the boards." And we're not talking the dregs of off-Broadway. According to The New York Times, Milan's legendary opera house, La Scala, is in contracts to mastermind a masterful production: An Inconvenient Truth The Opera.

Humph? Opera? That's a great way to spread the message to the masses . . .

Alas, opening night is not until 2011, but here's a little teaser of what the opera might look like--just to tide us over.

Please watch! I guarantee you'll get a good chuckle, especially from the last scene which features a very sweet polar bear, group of skeptical scientists and that infamous cherry picker.
