CNN debuts “Planet in Peril”


CNN does its own imitation of Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” beginning Tuesday night with a two-part documentary of unabashed green advocacy called “Planet in Peril.”

Complete with a theme song from REM, Anderson Cooper traverses the globe via helicopter, jeep, and airplane to explain how helicoptors, jeeps, airplanes, and other man-made devils are destroying the planet with CO2.

In a preview Sunday night, however, CNN did say that there was “good news.” According to chief environmental correspondent Miles O’Brien, “some big corporations finally agree there needs to be more government regulation.”

The Goracle couldn’t have put it any better.
