No Impact Man goes for the "Colbert Bump" tonight, 11:30p ET/10:30p CT

Important TV/DVR alert: Blogger, author and long-time 1Sky supporter Colin Beavan will appear tonight on The Colbert Report to promote his new documentary, No Impact Man.

We're hoping that Colin will experience "the Colbert Bump," defined by Wikiality: The Truthiness Encyclopedia as "[T]he surge of enthusiasm The American Public has for a politician, candidate for office, author or other personality after they appear on The Colbert Report." We're also hoping that Colin will make a small dent on Stephen's truthiness-tinged views on climate change, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Colin will be on The Colbert Report tonight on Comedy Central at 11:30 pm ET/10:30 pm CT, and you can watch a replay tomorrow at 2:00 am or online at the Colbert Nation website. For a sample of what Colin will be up against, check out Bill McKibben's appearance earlier this year:
