An article about amazon.com bestsellers is here...
I am a kind of a skeptic but let me admit that I thought that the ice shelves in "An Inconvenient Truth" were real. It turns out that they were computer-generated and directly taken from "The Day After Tomorrow", making the producers of TDAT really proud!
Some NB readers have suggested that Al Gore in AIT wasn't real, either. It may have been the robot from "Short Circuit" (1986). :-)

Update: Pelosi confuses the Bible and AIT
On the Earth Day, Nancy Pelosi argued:
"The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, 'To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.' On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children's children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature."You have heard the holy word. Or have you? :-) The actual message of Genesis 1:26 is the following:
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."I have included a link to 12 additional translations for you not to think that it is a mistranslation. Isn't it a bit different from Pelosi's worshipping to the Earth? Perhaps, Nancy Pelosi has confused the Bible with "An Inconvenient Truth." Or with "The Day After Tomorrow." ;-)
She has also violated most of the ten commandments - most importantly, the first three (in the Orthodox counting)
You shall have no other gods before meas well as the last three:
You shall not make for yourself an idol
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God ...
You shall not steal (not even from the carbon-producing companies and from the Democratic voters and other stupid movie audiences)So far, at least the Biblical scholars agree with me. Sometimes it is too bad that the Church no longer burns the heretics because not only Pelosi badly deserves it. :-)
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor (not even the false U.S. Senate witness James Hansen against your Exxon neighbor)
You shall not covet your neighbor's house (not even if he drives an SUV).
