Climate change video of the week: None Like It Hot

Set in the distant future long after politicians have devised a "solution" to global warming, this animation first aired in 2002 as part of the Futurama episode, "Crimes of the Hot," and was subsequently used in Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth.

Set in the distant future long after politicians have devised a "solution" to global warming, this animation first aired in 2002 as part of the Futurama episode, "Crimes of the Hot," and was subsequently used in Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth (Mr. Gore's daughter, Kristen, was a writer for the show).

Gore lent his voice to the episode, portraying his own head, which had been preserved in a glass jar for almost a millennium.

The episode was nominated for an Environmental Media Award, but it lost out to an episode of King of the Hill.
