"An Inconvenient Truth" is a complicated look at simple science - CinemaDave

Dec. 5th, 2006 09:08 pm "An Inconvenient Truth" is a complicated look at simple science

"An Inconvenient Truth" is former Vice President Al
Gore's documentary about the end of the world. Filmed
during the wrath of Hurricane Katrina, Gore presents a
slide show with facts, figures, funny cartoons and
environmental devastation. With professorial respect,
Gore presents a sincere argument about the effects
global warming on Mother Earth. If Gore does not run
for the presidency in 2008, he could make a career
producing movies about science. Director Davis
Guggenheim does an entertaining job presenting the dry
academics environmental science.

It is too bad that Guggenheim did not have the
confidence to stay focused on the science. Instead,
"An Inconvenient Truth" sidetracks to
Gore's childhood home, his son's near death
experience, his sister's death from smoking her father's tobacco
and losing the 2000 presidential election.

"An Inconvenient Truth" is a science and lesson
plans can be found on http://www.climatecrisis.net/.
While the former vice president encourages political
activism (with solutions that seem to be found only in
the Democratic party), the solutions to global
warming is actually quite simple. Plant more trees
and heed the advice of my father; “When Not in Use,
Turn Off the Juice!”

It is too bad that Mr. Gore does not practice what he preaches. Despite his publicity, I do not see him becoming Saint Enviro!

I agree, Al Gore could do more in his own life to support the environment (at least based on what I've heard about his personal contribution to CO2 emissions.

However, he is getting the word out, which does seem to be making a big difference!
