An Inconvenient Truth
If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, humanity is sitting on a time bomb. We have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything the world has ever experienced. A catastrophe that we have helped create and therefore we must attempt to remedy.

Director Davis Guggenheim's documentary presents a passionate and inspirational look at one man’s commitment to expose the myths and misconceptions that surround global warming. Vice President Al Gore, has, in the wake of defeat in the 2000 election, re-set the course of his life to focus on an effort to help save the planet from irrevocable change. In this poignant portrait of Gore and his “traveling global warming show,” you'll see a funny, engaging, and open man who's on fire about getting the surprisingly stirring truth about what he calls our “planetary emergency” out to ordinary citizens before it’s too late. With 2005, the worst storm season ever experienced in America, it seems we have reached a tipping point, and Gore pulls no punches in explaining the dire situation. Interspersed with the bracing facts and future predictions is the story of Gore’s personal journey: from an idealistic college student who first saw a massive environmental crisis looming; to a young Senator facing a harrowing family tragedy that altered his perspective; to the man who almost became President, but instead returned to the most impassioned cause of his entire life – believing there is still time to make a difference.

This exceptional film focuses on Gore’s persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue. It is simply one of the biggest moral challenges facing every person in our times. You'll be both shaken and stirred by this compelling documentary.
