Now we'll have the privilege of seeing Gore's sermons on climate change delivered to us in stunning recitative, while the soft contralto of the ailing mother earth lilts in the background. And what tenor has the chops to play the plucky hero: a dashingly handsome man who invents the "Internet," shepherds a nation through a period of unparalleled prosperity and suffers a painful defeat at the hands of the deposed king's son before being reborn like the phoenix? No wonder they're making it into an opera!
