An Inconvenient Truth The first I thing I think of whenever I hear Al Gore’s name is a crazy environmentalist who hands out hugs to redwoods. I’ve always thought this from news and television shows that poke fun and ridicule Gore’s position on global warming.

The film itself was great in expressing his life, feelings, and personal viewpoints on not only the issue, but how he got to the point of being so passionate about the global warming dilemma. The film in a nut-shell focuses on former Vice President Al Gore, who shares his concerns on the pressing issue of global warming in this documentary. A long-time environmental activist, Gore first became aware of evidence on global warming in the 1970s, and since leaving public office he has become a passionate advocate for large and small scale changes in our laws and lifestyles that could help alleviate this crisis. An Inconvenient Truth records a multi-media presentation hosted by Gore in which he discusses the scientific facts behind global warming, explains how it has already begun to affect our environment, talks about the disastrous consequences
