Last night's Academy Awards weren't as boring as I thought they would be. Admittedly I usually skip them but I was holding out for the 'Best Documentary' category to see if Davis Guggenheim et al would get the recognition they so richly deserved. And I was not disappointed.
Neither, I suspect, were millions of other human beings who got their first dose of the dangers of global warming through watching this highly acclaimed documentary. It may just be a gold statue, but it certainly represents an encouraging turn in public understanding around climate change.
