Oh, and Al Gore as well. Details:
This will be during the First Hour of Talk of the Nation, which here in the Midwest will start at 1:00, I think.
Filmmaker-turned-scientist Randy Olson will be on NPR’s Talk of the Nation TODAY shortly after Al Gore in a segment they are doing about communicating global warming.
This is in anticipation of the World Premiere of his new film, “Sizzle: A global warming comedy” this Saturday, July 19 in the Outfest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and on the east coast next Saturday, July 26 at the Woods Hole Film Festival.
Al Gore headlines our first hour, a discussion on what this moment means to the struggle for the environment. With gas prices through the roof (that’s not a scientific measure, so don’t quote me, but when I filled the tank of my economical car and it cost almost $50 I may have smacked the roof of the car in frustration…), environmentalists, including Mr. Gore himself, are hoping people are finally ready to listen to their alternative energy message. We’ve also got some folks who are trying to present the message in a different way, namely Matt Williams and Mike Hughes, the guys behind the “We Can Solve It” ads, and Randy Olson, who’s got a new documentary called Sizzle. We’ll end the hour with Warren Zinn, who took an iconic photograph of a soldier who later committed suicide.
