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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go See It. Go. Right Now. May 30, 2006
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and captivating May 28, 2006
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Never Looked at My Watch July 24, 2006
No matter what Al Gore's motivations may have been in making this movie, it is a carefully crafted, well-articulated, science-based, superbly visual presentation of what almost all respected and Nobel Prize-winning scientists have been saying for some time, that we are going through a period of global warming that is caused by greenhouse emission in the atmosphere.

His style is relaxed, articulate and sincere as he explains the threat of increased carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. He explains this in such a way that he can hold an intelligent audience while still explaining things for those who may need more time to understand. He manages to make his message without losing anyone.

This is made easier by his colorful and effective use of graphics that invite comparisons and trends. Vice President Gore always remains the focus of attention and uses the visuals to support his message. It is a very persuasive documentation.

The one part I did not care for was Mr. Gore discussing his family's prior income from tobacco and his sister's death from lung cancer caused by smoking. While he may have been very close to her in life, I think grief should be more private, so I found this a bit heavy-handed. Thus, four stars.

I admit to having read some of the one-star tirades, and could address them, but I think it is better to ignore them. I hope you will too, and buy the DVD. Maybe you will invite one of them over to watch it with you!

One more thing, I never looked at my watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should have included scientists July 2, 2006
I laugh, first, at the negative reviews. There are those among the political "right" who consider "environmentalism" a religion. So they spout off the doctrine of their peers, ignoring the century or so of warnings one of the most recent and visible of which is this film. I thank those of that dogma. You're the ones who convinced me to see this film; had it not been for your ideological baggage--conspicuous from various "mainstream" media and here on these pages, I may have just stayed home.

True, it's full of Al Gore. In fact, that is perhaps the film's biggest weaknesses. Al quoted "a friend of mine," repeatedly, most of them, e.g., Carl Sagan, named. There was sentiment: Gore's son was nearly killed in an automobile accident at I think 6 years old. So Al became "conscientized," i.e., recognized the value of life, of the earth, etc. Unfortunately, there was the irrelevant. (See, right wingers? I even acknowledge some negative attributes of the film without throwing out the proverbial baby with the...well, you know.) There was a clip on Gore's having lost the 2000 election. I don't think that added a thing to the story. There was a slightly inferrable, "I'm better than Bush on the environment and that's bad." But that wasn't even clear. It should have been left out of the story.

Gore included lots of graphs. The empirical is important if you're trying to make a point. And those points he made effectively. One that my spouse and I both noted are the 958 (nearly 1,000 in any event) scientists who acknowledge a global warming problem with NO DISSENT. Yet, 53 percent of the mainstream media were skeptical of the scientists' claim. (Remember, those overpaid media pundits get their paychecks from the media who sensationalize the skepticism and the corporations that depend on it).

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.
