An Inconvenient Truth Reviews
A well-made, confronting, thought-provoking documentary. Well researched and planned - Al Gore engages you with the doom factor - gently at first but more forcefully as then movie goes on - and then provides hope at the end.
Great presentation by Al Gore. I was expecting a dry, bombarded-by-numbers-and-facts delivery and, while there is a bit of that (as there needed to be, to an extent), Al Gore makes the whole experience quite entertaining, while chillingly depressing at the same time. His delivery is spot-on and the use of visual aids (graphs etc) is very helpful.
It does feel a bit manipulative at times and certain aspects to his argument do stray from setting out scientific evidence to editorialising, sentimentality or scoring political points. These would be the only negatives.
Overall, a very informative, hard-hitting documentary.
When will politics stop and common sense enter the environmental argument? Everyone wants clean air and water. That has nothing to do with climate change. The climates been changing since time began. It was warm, then we had the ice age, then it warmed up again. There were no evil oil companies back then, so what caused the massive cooling, then massive warming? It's called "distance from the sun". This is something we have NO CONTROL OVER. So let's stop the man made global warming lie, get politics out of environmental discussions and concentrate on the truth.
