I finally got the time to sit down and watch this. I've been wanting to see it since it came out in theaters, but hadn't had the time.An Inconvenient Truth is a documentary film about climate change, specifically global warming, directed by Davis Guggenheim and starring former United States Vice President Al Gore. The documentary is based largely on a multimedia presentation that Gore developed over many years as part of an educational campaign on global warming.
An Inconvenient Truth is also the title of a companion book by Gore, which reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller lists of July 2 and August 13, 2006, and again during several months on the list.
The film premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and opened in New York and Los Angeles on May 24, 2006. It is the third-highest-grossing documentary in the United States to date. Both Gore and Paramount Classics, the film's distributor, have pledged proceeds from the film to further educational campaigns about climate change. The film was released on DVD by Paramount Home Entertainment on November 21, 2006.
I think he laid out his case in a well thought and constructive way... I mean how else can you explain all that ice melting?
I hope that we can all contribute as much as we can to solving the global warming issue.
Personally, I recycle... all glass, pet bottles, cans, milk cartons, batteries, steel, aluminum, etc..., I use mostly florescent bulbs in my home, I drive a 2000cc car, my wife has a 660cc car, and we haven't used our heating system all winter it's been cold as balls, but we're making use of the cheaper kotatsu, hot baths, and loads of blankets.
I don't want to see our world's ecology getting diseased and killing off species... especially due to man's careless ways...
Al Gore seemed to know his stuff, he seemed to have had an interest in this long before he was VP, and he seemed genuinely concerned about the world. I hope his presentation has the desired effect and people actually make changes to reduce our impact on global warming.
