Metropolitan Theatres mogul Bruce Corwin will distribute a list of 10 ways to help reduce global warming to theater patrons attending Al Gore’s environmental jeremiad, An Inconvenient Truth, which opens at Paseo Nuevo this week. In addition, Corwin has sent letters to other movie theater owners throughout the country asking them to do the same. Corwin praised the Gore film for depicting the dangers of global warming, but said he wanted to highlight actions people can actually take to reduce their contribution to the greenhouse effect. The list includes such simple suggestions as checking one’s car air pressure or using compact fluorescent light bulbs instead of standard bulbs. “Yes, they’re modest things,” Corwin said. “But if everybody does just one of these modest things, maybe that’s enough to save Greenland.”
