    Avoiding the usual vein-popping diatribes, he comes across as learned, calm and folksy. But much of what Gore says in this slide show he gives to people whose minds are not yet fully formed (undergraduates, actors) is absurd, and his assertions often contradict each other.

    An Inconvenient Truth is something you rarely see in movies today: a blatant intellectual fraud. Shame on all of the people involved in this travesty.

    Propaganda film for the Climate Change movement masquerading as a factual documentary, full of half-truths, outright errors, and dodgy science, presented in a slick package with carefully selected stock footage. Oh, won't someone think of the polar bears! Full Review »

    While I agree with the general urgency this movie tries to portray I hate the special interests and motives behind it all. Al Gore himself travels around the country in his own Jet, making millions of dollars in the process. I think we not only suffer from pollution from burning fuels but also pollution in the form of money which corrupts even the noblest of causes. I am afraid these things just give weapons to the non believers and in general detriments the efforts of people trying to solve this very real crisis. Full Review »

    An Inconvenient Truth is a persuasive argument to the effects global warming has on the environment and why we should change them. The film has good intentions and lots of facts and statistics to back up its points, and almost convinces even the most closed-minded person that he or she needs to change. Full Review »
