Inconvenient Truth – Al Gore on Global Warming

Inconvenient Truth PosterI just finished watching “Inconvenient Truth” – A documentary film by Al Gore detailing the rationale behind the truth of Global warming. I found the film captivating and moving. I personally believe that human activities contribute to Global warming and that we all should consciously do our part to counter this threat.

According to Wikipedia,

An Inconvenient Truth is an American Academy Award-winning documentary film about global warming, presented by former United States Vice President Al Gore and directed by Davis Guggenheim.

An Inconvenient Truth focuses on Al Gore and his travels in support of his efforts to educate the public about the severity of the climate crisis. Gore says, “I’ve been trying to tell this story for a long time and I feel as I’ve failed to get the message across.” The film nearly follows a Keynote presentation (dubbed “the slide show”) that Gore presented throughout the world. It intersperses Gore’s exploration of data and predictions regarding climate change and its potential for disaster with Gore’s life story.

  2. Time for you to watch Sicko as well. Another amazing documentary on the American Health Care System.

    What I liked about the Inconvenient Truth was the way Al Gore presented the whole thing,I dont remember exactly, but at one point he used a ladder to show the high level of effect the emisson of Green House Gases were causing.. Nice to know I am not the only one who watches documentaries..
