TBS aired a special last Sunday called "Earth to America" a comedy benifit designed to raise money for the prevention and ongoing research and ultimatly the solution to global warming. The 2 hour special filmed at Caeser's in Las Vegas was part of a 3 day comedy festival in Vegas, I was supposed to attend were it not for unreliable friends.
Aiming to prove that laughter is the best medicine--even for what's ailing the planet--Earth to America! is a two-hour comedy event featuring America's funniest superstars. Featured performers include: John F Kennedy Jr, Astronaut Jim Hovell (of the Apollo 13 mission) Dustin Hoffman, Leo Dicaprio, Will Ferrell, Bill Mahr, Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Martin Short, Eric Idle, Larry David, Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and more.
The special was produced by Larry David's wife Laurie David and was a blend of music and standup. It was brilliantly and bitingly funny and sarcastic.
All that said I gotta say the highlight of the show was watching Triumph the Insult Dog brow beat 4 Republican Congressmen who honestly do not believe in global warming and consider that it is all junk science. In the face of overwhelming evidence brought to the table by Triumph, the Congressmen froze. Then Triumph asked if global warming was proven, would they find a way to pin this on Sadam? One of the congressmen turned and with a straight face said yes.
I am a moderate on most of my beliefs but I agree with the overwhelmin sediment of the entire evening: Global Warming is far too large an issues for us to sit around and debate the merit of the science. We need to act NOW!
