Trend: User-Created: "Truth" Evangelism

Al Gore is developing a training program to teach 1,000 people how to deliver his climate change slideshow (the pivotal feature of his movie An Inconvenient Truth) so that he may spread the message faster.

The first of these training intensives will take place in Nashville towards the end of September, with under 100 people, some of whom will be hand-selected by Gore, others of whom will be chosen by application.

Gore will take the slideshow and pull out anything that's personal, to create a general version...Trainees will learn to do updates themselves, and Gore will also feed updates to them periodically. Once trained, people go back to their communities and give the presentations themselves, and train others in their community to give it.

Funding and scholarships will be made available for applicants who cannot afford the travel expenses. Here is the application.
