So maybe you've been meaning to see that movie with the drowning polar bears
, but you're finding the supersized Al Gore isn't so easy on the eyes. How about Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury
's smiling half-dome instead? Now's your chance, since Bradbury will be giving Gore's slide show at 7 pm tonight
(Thursday, April 5) at PCC-Sylvania.
Bradbury was one of the first 50 climate warriors Gore trained personally last fall to deliver the slide show at the core of An Inconvenient Truth
, and Bradbury's making the rounds with the ex-veep's presentation and his own perspective on Oregon's role in tackling global warming.
Next stop: Portland Community College-Sylvania Campus, 12000 SW 49th Ave. Event free, parking free after 6:30. For more info on the Gore-Bradbury warm offensive, go to theclimateproject.org
OK, so: First "losing" 2000 presidential candidate Gore snags an Oscar for his movie, then ?losing? presidential candidate John Kerry shows up at the Bagdad flogging his own enviro treatise
, and now Bradbury, who unsuccessfully challenged Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Ore.) in 2002, takes Oregon into the A/V club's green zone.
Who will we see next? My money's on 1988 presidential also-ran Michael Dukakis, trying out the next generation of biodiesel tanks
