Frustrated that President Obama and Congress are currently focusing most of their attention (and our money) on other things while his “clean energy” stock portfolio takes a hit (dramatization of Al’s message to DC Dems here), the Goracle is again turning to Hollywood.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter about 75 guests including Lawrence Bender, Leonard Nimoy and Lynn Lear gathered to hear Gore’s impassioned plea for the entertainment industry to renew its focus on climate change.

While in town, Gore also lunched with An Inconvenient Truth director Davis Guggenheim.

At a dinner for the Children’s Defense Fund, the documentarian bemoaned global warming slipping off the public agenda.

“Do you think it still matters to people?” he wondered.

The short version of that is, “Will one of you please make a sequel to The Day After Tomorrow?”

Actually, if Gore was serious about getting Hollywood on board to help curb climate change, he’d demand that they shut down production on everything.
