In this great Rolling Stone interview last month, Al Gore said that he plans to train 1,000 volunteers to deliver the Inconvenient Truth slide show across the country. I immediately began scouring the web looking for information on how to apply, but found nothing. Finally, I called Al and Tipper’s office in Tennessee and they gave me an email address to which I summarily sent a resume and cover letter. Yesterday I received a reply.
Alas, now I have other plans and won’t be able to participate, but here is the program description and application, for all you Grist readers who have a free weekend in September, funds to get yourself down to Nashville, and the cojones to stand up in front of a crowd — at least 10 times — and tell them their world is going to melt, burn, and flood unless we all do something about it. Encore!
