The amazing powers of the slideshow is yet another proof of how media does propaganda well

Al Gore does...

Al Gore does...

There is indeed that big problem of man making too much bad changes on earth. This is the only one we've got, and no matter what regenerative powers it has, it can't compete with us.

Having said that~ let's move on to an Inconvenient Truth. One statement - my professor in NatSci Natural Science gave a better lecture on the possible effects of global warming if allowed to continue on than Al Gore. And what is horrible about An inconvenient Truth?

I watched and sympathized when he talked of findings and of the visual effects on Earth, I sighed and fidgeted when those strip of his life story and political career all in the name of Earth kept interfering with my understanding of his cause.

Seriously man, what is he fighting for? Earth, or his political career? I am at best exasperated and at worst deeply, deeply irritated.

This isn't a good basis to start your opinions on global warming and climate change. It is far too dramatic, truly another proof of how media can go wrong.

Barry's Response - Those personal anecdotes are definitely confusing to the whole story and have caused several to ask similar questions to what you pose.


I can somewhat see that it helps build a big picture for his understanding, experience and mission,
but it retains a faint odour of political agenda. This is what underlies many complaints (in the scientific community) regarding the film.

If you haven't seen it

'An Inconvenient Truth' is a 2006 documentary about climate change and its potential consequences. Davis Guggenheim's film, starring former Vice President Al Gore, presents a comprehensive overview of the scientific evidence he had at the time for climate change and argues for immediate action.

Some critics have raised concerns about the film's approach and presentation, but they generally acknowledge its importance as a call to action on climate change. The film has been criticized for being overly alarmist and presenting an incomplete picture of the science of climate change, and it's been criticized for its political tone. Heavily criticized.

Also, critics said the movie came out at a time when climate change wasn't a major political issue and helped raise public awareness, leading to increased pressure on government and business. Even with these criticisms, "An Inconvenient Truth" has been widely credited (in other circles) with popularizing climate change and creating a more pressing sense of urgency for action. Millions of people have seen the film, inspiring many to shout about taking action on climate change and making this environmental controversy an important part of the global conversation.
