Think Globally

Trust me: It's impossible to win an interview with Al Gore when your media credentials are ozone-thin. You'd think he was trying to save the planet; you'd think he was a big-name politician or even a movie star, with all the hoops and fire-walks involved in four little e-mail questions. Actually, Al Gore is all of these things and more. From senator to vice president to environmental activist to film personality, the former almost-president has run the gamut of career changes, and it seems like he's finally found his stride.

Beginning tonight at 8 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Theatre in the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street, watch and learn as Gore's multimedia presentation, "An Inconvenient Truth," explores the damages and potential rip-roaring effects pollution has had on the planet, from the snows of Kilimanjaro to the polar ice caps.
