I have positive reactions to the film.

Not only did I see the film "An Inconvenient Truth" in the movie theater, but I also had the positive follow-up experience of seeing Al Gore deliver his powerpoint presentation in person. Finally, I thought, someone is giving voice and scientific data to thoughts that many people have advocated for decades: the increasing world population and production of greenhouse gas is throwing nature out of balance and living things will suffer accordingly.
The transcription provided in http://www.stuffintheair/AnInconvenientTruth.html
is very helpful in condensing the former Vice President's premises. I am especially glad that the website and he himself explained why he has chosen this as his "crusade". He is professorial in his presentaion, giving more weight to his thoughts and recommendations than might otherwise be the case.
Having climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 1997 and also having visited Antarctica in January 2005, I was particularly interested in the effects of global warming on those two locations. The current pictures of the Mt. Kilimanjaro peak show that the snows are indeed melting. I visited Antarctica just after news of some major ice melting there. Standing on the deck our our ship in Paradise Bay, we could actually hear the loud noises that are made when chunks of icebergs melt and crash into the water. It's alarming.
When you click on some of the website's links, you get additional background information which is helpful. I would see this film again. I would highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it. In fact, I am hoping that Mr. Gore will produce an update for general distribution.Barry's Response
