The film, An Inconvenient Truth was an amazing eye-opener. I loved the film and have such a greater respect for Al Gore and his fight against global warming. Gore was able to represent the information in simple visual terms that the average consumer can understand and relate to. As a major skeptic, I still question some of the facts, figures and graphs that were produced, because numbers and data can always be manipulated to support any argument. However, I have no doubt that the end results will be the same, if not more disastrous.
One thing I loved about this movie was how it was able to tie everything together to show the relationship between our actions and its impact on the world and the environment. A person typically sees only what surrounds them and rarely beyond it. Who knew that one’s action could negatively impact another continent or the “invisible” barrier that protects us from the harmful sun. This movie helped provide a greater connection and increased responsibility for the planet we live on.
This is one film that has had a major impact on me and my way of life. Not having being serious about recycling, (because it was inconvenient), some of the changes I’ve made include setting up recycling bins in my home and workplace, “upgrading” my gas-guzzling sports car to a fuel-economic hybrid and participating in monthly community clean-ups. I know I can’t save the world, but I will certainly do what I can to not accelerate its downfall.
If you enjoyed watching An Inconvenient Truth, I’d recommend also checking out “Who Killed the Electric Car” produced by Sony, or another Michael Moore documentary, “Sicko”.Barry's Response
- Thanks Jay: Research is good. Data presentations are good. The more people we have analyzing and interpreting data, the better in the long run. I means we shall eventually hit upon the correct answer.Search
