"An Inconvenient Truth" (2006)

Al Gore

As I’ve been writing about a few of the films I’ve seen recently I wanted to make sure I mentioned the possibly most important film of last year: Davis Guggenheim’s “An Inconvenient Truth”.

I URGE you to watch this film capturing Al Gore’s presentation on global warming.

Beyond the politics, your religion or spirituality, your nationality and whatever beliefs you may have, everyone should watch this film and ponder what we can do to save the environment – and what may happen if we don’t…

There’s hope – especially now that even the American government has finally accepted that global warming exists (it’s a bit of a joke that it took so long, not a very funny one, of course).

The only part that puzzled me about this film is that the hole in the ozone layer (or “the ozone patch”) was hardly mentioned. Is that not an issue anymore at all or did Al Gore just not want to complicate the issue in his presentation?
