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.

After the election of Trump, "An Inconvenient Truth" and its belief in the narrative of liberal democratic progress, seems a little naive. While I admire the call to grassroots activism at the end of the documentary, is riding a bike going to stop major corporations from polluting our planet and killing people who try to organize and stand up to them? Ironically, Gore's failure to win the White House in 2000 speaks volumes to how powerless we are in the face of lobbyists and corporations that trample on us and destroy the planet. What remains unexplained in this documentary is our government's complicity with these corporations. Towards the end, Gore explains this complicity as an "inconvenient truth." Indeed. Instead of falling upon the "do something" narrative, this documentary would do better to acknowledge the social, political and economic contexts that make up our current climate change crisis. Hurricane Katrina and the global south are acknowledged, but the longer trajectories of economic, social and political disenfranchisement, such as institutional slavery (yes tobacco farms...), indigenous genocide, Western colonialism, are not...

I am a conservative (though not a Republican). I am also a skeptic. There have been--and are--several aspects of "environmentalism" about which I have been, and remain, skeptical or even hostile. For instance, I believe that recycling efforts tend to use more energy than they produce. Also, I believe that the discouragement of the use of D.D.T., worldwide, may have had disasterous consequences given the spread of malaria in those areas that did not undergo massive D.D.T. spraying; malaria has been virtually eliminated in the United States and Europe, where D.D.T. was used in large amounts, but continues to kill on the order of millions in Africa where it was hardly used at all. Also, I question the abridgment of human liberties in the name of certain causes, such as the protection of one species or another or the maintenance of some "pristine" environment.

That said, Al Gore, in An Inconvenient Truth, makes a clear and compelling case that 1) Global Warming is real, 2) We are responsible for it, 3) It will have disasterous consequences on our environment, and thus ourselves, if left unchecked.

For the most part, An Inconvenient Truth is the filming of a lecture that Gore delivers as a college seminar. We watch Gore as he provides study after study, statistic after statistic, to support his conclusions. He comes across as very well informed, reasonable, and sincere in his convictions.

The skeptic in me says that, there is probably "another side of the story." I hope--and I believe that Mr. Gore would hope as well--that this film inspires people to try to learn as much as they can about this topic in order to reach an informed opinion.
