Really Alternative Cinema: the teaser

On Friday night, I went to a Greens Party screening of The 11th Hour, and came home to hear that Al Gore had won the Nobel Peace Prize. By now, you'll probably have heard that the Supreme Court had voted 5/4 to award it to George W. Bush instead, so I won't use that joke... but it did make me wonder what might have happened to the documentary film in those parallel worlds where Al Gore became President in 2001. What would have been the alternative versions of 'Fahrenheit 9/11', 'Outfoxed', 'An Inconvenient Truth', 'The 11th Hour', 'That's My Bush', etc?

I shall be conducting research into this issue during my copious free time-travel, but any assistance will, of course, be welcomed.
