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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inconvenient Reality July 12, 2006
In addition to an excellent overview presentation of the realities of global warming, this documentary offers a disarmingly human look at Al Gore - a view that should have been seen six years ago.

The graphics and reasoning of his presentations are first rate. The reliance on a broad range of converging scientific studies is impressive. And contrary to early reviews of this movie in other venues, the scenes of Gore trapsing through airports, undergoing security scans, working nights in his hotel rooms, and following up on peripheral critiques of global warming helped bring home the perserverance and dedication of this man.

A quick scan of negative reviews of this movie suggests strongly that the authors must have been in the lavatory when the segments they criticized were on screen. See this movie! It's well organized, thoughtfully presented, and thorough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good presentation July 10, 2006
One reviewer wrote:


"The Ice Caps are melting!! Sea levels will rise!!" Really? Such drivel shows a real lack of scientific understanding. Ice caps are after all, floating ice. Not a land mass. To see how water levels will rise try this little scientific experiment. Take a bowl. Fill it half full of water. Add a lot of ice cubes or a block of ice. Mark the level of the water once that is done. Let it melt. Note the water level has not risen because the ice melted. Duh!!


Now, if that reviewer actually saw the movie, he would have seen the same experiment reinacted on the screen. The problem isn't the ice that's already in the oceans melting. The problem is, when that ice melts, the 'dam' or barrier to the land-based ice is removed and that land-based ice then flows into the ocean raising sea level.

Do the above experiment and then add a handfull of ice and watch the water level rise.

The facts that Mr. Gore presents are strong and well thought out. I do hope that people listen and collectivelly try to change. However, that won't be the case. People seem to need a disaster to incite action. The threat of terrorism was just as real before 9/11 as it was after, but it took that disaster to incite action and in some cases overreaction.

The movie is a great documentary even if you don't believe in the subject. It is well thought out, humorous in just the right places, and makes its point clearly. This film reinforces in my mind that entertainment can also be educational.

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.

And on a more serious note, Gore not being a scientist is not particularly... Read More
