Leonardo DiCaprio Introduces ‘The 11th Hour,' AKA ‘An Inconvenient Truth, Part II’

Given the dismal failure of Al Gore’s Live Earth concerts, now seems hardly the time to be releasing “An Inconvenient Truth, Part II.”

Yet, on August 17, Leonardo DiCaprio’s documentary about how man is destroying the planet, “The 11th Hour,” premieres to a society that seems to be losing interest in global warming alarmism.

How delicious.

The seemingly over-worked premise is described thusly (trailer available here, h/t NBer Sick-n-Tired):

”The 11th Hour” is the last moment when change is possible. The film explores how we’ve arrived at this moment — how we live, how we impact the earth’s ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course. Featuring ongoing dialogues of experts from all over the world, including former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, former head of the CIA R. James Woolsey and sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau in addition to over 50 leading scientists, thinkers and leaders who discuss the most important issues that face our planet and people.

Any bets as to how quickly this ends up out of the theatres and on DVD?
