Al Gore’s Environmental Documentary hits select cities today
By Led Black
The dude that really won the 2000 election, Al Gore, is back in the public eye with his compelling and at sometimes seriously disturbing movie, An Inconvenient Truth. The Davis Guggenheim directed flick which was a big hit in the 2006 Sundance Film Festival is an engaging look at the controversial topic of climate change and global warning. Politics notwithstanding, respected scientists the world over agree that humanity has to take concerted action to avoid an environmental meltdown of biblical proportions. While the prospects of this occurring are quite grim, this movie manages to present the subject matter with verve and wit, a blueprint for awakening the masses to demand from their elected officials more than rhetoric, but significant change. If last year’s Hurricane Katrina was any indication, mankind is truly unprepared for the fate that awaits it.
