向大家推荐一部电影:An Inconvenient Truth,中文译名:难以忽视的真相

虽然很久以前就知道这部影片,却一直没有机会静下心来看,几个月前与别人聊天的时候又说起了这个电影,还特地从网上下载了,今天终于从头到尾看了一遍,觉得不错。影片曾经获得2007年的奥斯卡金像奖,主演是戈尔(Al Gore),他曾经是克林顿政府的美国副总统(1993-2001)。戈尔在哈佛上学的时候就对气候变化感兴趣(他的老师是),后来也做过很多关于控制温室气体排放的政策性工作,在2000年的总统大选中输给小布什以后(尽管戈尔得到的选票比小布什多50万票),戈尔重新回到环保议题,开始在全美乃至全球巡回演讲,推动保护环境的工作。这部电影讲叙的就是全球变暖的问题,如果地球人不努力改善环境的话,全球气候将发生重大变化,灾难随之降临。因为在环保事业上做出的突出贡献,戈尔获得2007年的诺贝尔和平奖。

Melissa Etheridge – I Need To Wake Up

Have i been sleeping?
I’ve been so still
Afraid of crumbling
Have i been careless?
Dismissing all the distant rumblings
Take me where i am supposed to be
To comprehend the things that i can’t see

Cause i need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And i need to wake up
Now

And as a child
I danced like it was 1999
My dreams were wild
The promise of this new world
Would be mine
Now i am throwing off the carelessness of youth
To listen to an inconvenient truth

That i need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And i need to wake up
Now

I am not an island
I am not alone
I am my intentions
Trapped here in this flesh and bone

And i need to move
I need to wake up
I need to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And i need to wake up
Now

I want to change
I need to shake up
I need to speak out
Oh, something’s got to break up
I’ve been asleep
And i need to wake up
Now
