About this product
- DescriptionA movie based on a PowerPoint presentation by a former presidential candidate may not sound exciting, but once AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH hits its stride viewers may be surprised how compelling the subject matter proves to be. While many high-ranking political figures continue to argue about global warming, Al Gore has plunged headlong into a serious wake-up call for the planet with a series of lectures about the problem. It's on one of these lectures that this movie from director Davis Guggenheim is based. Guggenheim breaks up Gore's delivery by illustrating his points with film footage, much of which features the former Democratic nominee exploring the globe as he examines the effects of global warming. Gore's speech is neatly divided between calm recitations of the facts about the issue and several stories of a personal nature. His skills as an orator are considerable, and it's hard not to be alarmed by most of what he has to say. Indeed, as Gore relates tales of melting polar icecaps, rising global temperatures, and the reluctance of political leaders to do something about the problem, the film takes on an air of hopelessness and doom, especially as no easy solutions are offered. Gore's advice is for individuals to take steps to reduce their own inadvertent poisoning of the atmosphere, and to persuade others to do likewise. It's a powerful message, and one that is likely to remain in non-cynical minds long after the film comes to a conclusion.

The true reality of what our planet faces for our and the next generation.
This will open your eyes. I couldnt believe how serious climate change really is! Al Gore explains the facts passionatley and it makes you wonder what if he had become president...? An excellent in depth documentary, for everyone, not just the eco friendly. 5 Star.

Absolutely excellent and Essential Viewing
Although some of the information is dated now (2011), the DVD remains VERY pertinent, and the section UPDATE (which is included) written a year after the original is essential viewing. Full marks to the producers and Al Gore, what a different world we might be in, had George not stolen the Presidency. Watch this DVD. Make your friends and family watch it.

An Incovenient Truth
I brought this film as I had been shown only 1 scene from it. Everyone needs to watch this film. I cant believe that there is still denial that Climate Change is happening. All the proof to the contrary is here.

An Inconvenient Truth
Informative no nonsense and rational approach that makes the science of global warming accessible. Al Gore tells it like it is but salvages hope from a despairing subject. I love the analogy of the frog; which placed in scalding water will jump out immediately, but if heated slowly in it's pool it will do nothing to save itself. Are we that stupid?
