An Inconvenient Truth

Activist documentary based around (robbed, former-next-president) Al Gore’s stunning multimedia presentation. The topic: the scientific and moral concerns of global warming on planet Earth. Guggenheim has put it all together in a documentary meant to shock you, scare you, but also as a rallying cry to protect our environment. "It is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly, and wisely" says Mr. Gore.

Winner of Best Documentary and Best Original Song at the 2007 Academy Awards.

Curious.....

Obviously this is an emotionally charged topic, as the evidence of response to certain people shows. I am curious however, that there was a lot of noise over Annes comment, yet when facts are presented by another person - Glenn (although the shortcut to the magazine was a bit much) - those same people have gone quiet. As I said, curious. My own opinion...

Great

History's Greatest Hoax

You’ve all been sucked in. Badly. Here are some of the hundreds of lies featured in the Inconvenient Truth: Gore’s alarmist film presents 10 before-and-after photos showing what 20 feet of sea level rise would do to the world’s coastlines. SCARE TACTICS! The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change does NOT forecast rises of 18-20 feet,...

There's more than science in them thar hills...

Haven't seen the move-e so I can only comment on the comments. Many of those who liked the movie a lot have a lot of nasty comments about those who did'nt and those who didn't don't seem so mean spirited as trying to point out some things to think about. I think that sums up the difference between liberal and conservative.

Stupidity

It's incredible how many people think that if the message is important, then the movie must be good......or........if someone says something bad about a film, then they must not believe the message. If anyone actually took the time to read the comments from Vince and Anne below, they will see that neither disagree with the message of the film. They just...

Must see this and take action

Brilliant film that addresses a problem that so very badly needs action. Lets hope that if a catastrophe does happen it will kill Vince and Anne and all others in denial that are using up our precious resources for wasted space.

Scarier than George W. with a loaded gun

a great movie

Right on Micheal! I thought this movie was fantastic because it promoted awareness of an issue you don't hear enough about. Anne - from what I've read, pretty much all reputable scientists agree that humans are accelerating the rate of climate change on this planet and the consequences are unpredictable, irreversible and very worrying indeed. If you're...

Haunting and inspiring... What could have been mired in political rhetoric or techno-speak is instead illuminating, fascinating and sometimes frightening. A thought-provoking cautionary tale that is also lively and entertaining, An Inconvenient Truth showcases the dedication, warmth and, yes, charm of the former vice president...

Gore keeps us riveted by being charming, literate and profoundly persuasive on a topic that's scarier than anything in a dozen Japanese horror flicks. Vote Gore on this one...
