Former Vice President, Al Gore with the aid of director Davis Guggenheim has delivered an educational and entertaining look at our environment and what we are doing to it. This is an important film that shares the science and the politics behind global warming and how it affects our planet and the continuance of our society; specifically what has been happening over the last century with a focus on the last 50 years. It also makes a projection for the next 50 years. It is not looking good. The earth is dying and we are the cause.
If you watch this film you'll learn how CO2 (carbon dioxide) is killing our planet (70 million tons of CO2 are pumped into the atmosphere every day). You will see footage on the decline of our glaciers, our increasing population, weather disturbances, animal and plant extinctions, an increase in new diseases and most importantly you will learn why it should be important to us. This is definitely an educational film but it's a very important one for our time. And it won't put you to sleep.
My only qualm with the film is that it did not spend enough time teaching the viewer enough on what we can do individually and as a society to correct the problem. Fortunately, where the film leaves off, the Climate Crisis website continues. If you visit the Climate Crisis website you will find an educational guide, downloads, news, updates and clips of An Inconvenient Truth's movie trailer.
We all play a role in the destruction of our environment; we all need to take a role in saving it beyond recycling and light bulbs. Watch the movie to see what is going on then visit the website to see what you can do to help. Collectively, we can make a difference.
