  1. #1 To Gore: Give Back Oscar. 
    Take back Al Gore's Oscar, two Academy members demand in light of Climategate
    December 4, 2009 | 2:03 am

    No, it wouldn't do anything for the environment.

    But two Hollywood conservatives (yes, there are some) have called on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to rescind the prestigious, profitable gold Oscar statuette that it gave ex-Vice President Al Gore two years ago for the environmental movie "An Inconvenient Truth."

    Roger L. Simon and Lionel Chetwynd, both Academy members, are among a small, meandering pack of known political conservatives still believed to be on the loose in the liberal bastion of movie-making.

    In 2007, the Academy sanctified Gore's cinematic message of global warming with its famous statue, enriched his earnings by $100,000 per 85-minute appearance and helped elevate the Tennessean's profile to win the Nobel Peace Prize despite losing the election battle of 2000 to a Texan and living in a large house with lots of energy-driven appliances.

    Chetwynd and Simon were prompted to make their hopeless demand this week by the ...... leak two weeks ago of a blizzard of British academic e-mails purporting to show that scientists at the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit systematically falsified data to document the appearance of global warming in recent years.
    LOL!

    Roger L. Simon and Lionel Chetwynd, be prepared to never work in Hollywood again.
