Ban Ki-moon, the normally buttoned-up Secretary General of the United Nations, swept into Los Angeles during Oscar week playing the role of Hollywood pitchman. His message: Make global warming a Hot issue.
"I need your support," he told entertainment industry insiders during a daylong forum Tuesday that focused on recent heat waves, floods, fires and drought, which scientists link to human-induced climate change.
....about 400 writers, directors, producers, agents and network executives attended the outreach events.
....To coordinate with Hollywood, the U.N. has set up an office, the "Creative Community Outreach Initiative" in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, funded by media mogul Ted Turner.
....Also on panels were Indian economist Rajendra Pachauri chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the group of some 2,500 scientists who won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for assessing the effects of greenhouse gases

Ummmm...Hollywood is already invested up to its eyeballs trying to sell this crap religion.
Hasn't Mr. Ban Ki-moon ever seen "The Day After Tomorrow"?
How appropriate for times that are o so much like a bad movie.
Oh brother!!!! So now hollywood elite are climatologist? Maybe they’ll be able to cure cancer too.
I thought this clown has been discredited, already, on a host of issues??
HW would have to shutdown to do any good.
Wow, a proposal to unite the two classes of “dumb and dumber”.
Like anyone in Hollypuke or Buttstank has any more credibility with the American people, than anyone from the UN...
Hollywood will just make a pro-climate change propaganda movie. Michael Moore will probably do it.
He was. I guess he is so invested with the con he can’t quit.
What happened to the 'warmest year on record': The truth is global warming has halted
Climategate U-turn as scientist at centre of row admits: There has been no global warming since 1995
What a marriage! The UN should also tie it into the porn industry — get it on to save the planet! It would be funny if the guy gave a talk to the porn industry executives saying that the UN will push for the legitimacy of child sex in return for raising the consciousness about global warming. But the porn industry is run by the mafia who have some principles about kids and they beat the crap out of him.
I’m sure they will try to reach the children. That’s the only way they can continue this expensive farce.
ROFLOL!!! That’s so true.
They held these meetings during Oscar week. What irony, it will be one of the coldest evenings on the Red Carpet in years.
What’s that crawling across that guy’s head?!!!
What if people stop going to see their bad movies and stop watching tv? It’s gotten so bad anyway.. it really won’t take much.
