Editorial Reviews

Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change in the most talked-about documentary of the year. An audience and critical favorite, An Inconvenient Truth makes the compelling case that global warming is real, man-made, and its effects will be cataclysmic if we don’t act now. Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way: often humorous, frequently emotional, always fascinating. In the end, An Inconvenient Truth accomplishes what all great films should: it leaves the viewer shaken, involved and inspired.

All I can say is go out and see this movie right away!
C. Kellen
Remarkably, he makes it easy to understand, pointing out key facts, walking us through some of the more difficult to understand ideas and problems.

Ok, let me get this straight. They made a documentary about Al Gore giving a lecture? About global warming? Okay, I'm already asleep. Snore. Yawn. Why don't I just stay home and save the money I would spend to take a nap.

All kidding aside, if you know anything about Al Gore, you know this is a subject he is extremely committed to and passionate about. Very passionate. And after five years of some of the worst, most harmful environmental policy to ever come out of Washington, DC, there is no better time for "An Inconvenient Truth".

I know many consider Gore to be less than a captivating speaker. But in "An Inconvenient Truth" he comes across as a different man because he is so passionate and committed to the subject of global warming, he comes across as a different man. Informed, knowledgeable, conversational and persuasive, if he were like this during the election, there would be no Florida Recount in our history books. Okay, so that didn't happen. But the result is that Gore, much like Clinton and Carter, are trying to do something with their status to help better the world. Gore has long been an environmental advocate and it shows. He knows the facts inside and out; people have provided him with statistics, graphs, charts and more, and he uses them in this presentation.

As Gore states, he has given the lecture more than a thousand times around the globe. Because of this, he is extremely comfortable addressing large audiences, giving them a lot of scientific research to digest. Remarkably, he makes it easy to understand, pointing out key facts, walking us through some of the more difficult to understand ideas and problems. He also knows when the audience needs a break and interjects humor here and there.

When I was a child, people clapped at the end of movies -- we knew that the filmmakers wouldn't actually hear us, but we showed our appreciation nonetheless. Over the years, it seems that tradition has died out. I don't think I've heard anyone clap at the end of a movie for twenty-odd years. Until, that is, this afternoon.

The entire audience clapped at the end of "An Inconvenient Truth".

It is all too rare to see people act out of idealism and ethics. Those qualities shine throughout this film -- Al Gore has noticed a problem -- a BIG problem -- and he has learned about it, and is trying to solve it. The "news" media gives us little 15-second soundbites instead of news and arguments, believing that we, the American public, are too stupid to comprehend any non-trivial ideas. Gore, on the other hand, clearly has faith in us to UNDERSTAND, to do the right thing, and, above all, to CARE.

See it.

Whether you believe Al Gore or not, every American out there has a duty to watch this movie or find some other way to get involved understanding the *facts* behind global warming.

I have read articles saying the movie is amazing, and some articles saying it stretches the truth, etc. But regardless it is incredibly eye-opening.

I thought the documentary was great. I still have questions - like why were there next to no hurricanes in 2006 and why are the oceans not boiling due to the current CO2 levels in the atmosphere? Although I believe the information presented in the film to be largely true, I also believe the earth to be at least as complex as the human body - created just as wonderfully and intricately. That said there are just unknowns about how the earth copes with stress (or doesn't cope) as there are with how the body heals (or doesn't).

So I will set my questions aside for this reason - what does it hurt to be a good steward of our planet? It takes a few extra minutes to put my recycling in the bin. Even if global warming is a hoax, who wants landfills? I do a little more research when I buy a car. But isn't that smart anyway? And doesn't it benefit me financially to drive a car with higher gas mileage/lower emissions? I spend an extra 10 cents on yogurt manufactured by a company that offsets 100% of its CO2 emissions. But that yogurt also has no artificial sweeteners and no chemicals - isn't that better for me anyway? I walk my kids to school. Hello, heard of childhood obesity? I reuse plastic grocery bags (and paper ones too, for that matter). Isn't this just being frugal, thrifty and smart? I buy "green" electricity from my power company - don't I want to step outside and breathe good, non-polluted air?

The message here is that it is NOT DIFFICULT and NOT A HARDHSIP to be an environmentalist - or don't call yourself an environmentalist - say you are protecting the earth, helping to create a clean home for your family or being a steward of our greatest natural resource - the pale blue dot.

Loved it, loved it, loved it. A fabulous lecture hall! Stupendous graphs! Articulate, informed, committed teacher!

If you can handle the truth, well, here it is.

Vice President Gore has given this lecture a thousand times. He has honed it, tweeked it until any attentive and interested viewer can understand.

Occasional pithy personal comments allow the viewer insight into the lecturer. And help to break-up the, how do I say this, "We're Doomed!"

School Administrators need to take heed of this for educational use. But just in case they don't parents should view this with their children.

We all need to get ready to save the world.

Why are the polar ice caps melting?
The only thing Mars and Earth have in common is the Sun. Since it has been determined by recent studies that Solar irradiance cannot be attributed to have had a major impact on our own current warming trend, we then have to assume that ice melting on Mars is also being caused by some other... Read More

Global Warming is a myth
Sorry Mr. Chan, but Ryan is correct. Labeling everyone liberal isn't going to change science. That's why Isaac Newton developed the scientific method - so that it would stay objective.

Conservative rejection of global warming
John, I think that the difficulty comes from the fact that they've spent so much time and money convincing themselves that it isn't true. ExxonMobil spent a tremendous amount funding the research of global warming skeptics. Fifteen years ago we actually did need more research to bring us to a... Read More

Haha. You lost all credibility when you said "evolution" WITH the quotation remarks. I can actually picture you saying the word "evolution" while making bunny ears with your fingers. Good stuff.
