    wonderful work of fiction. A british judge ruled that in order for school children to watch the movie, the teacher must cite the 9 (confirmed) lies in the movie, such as the gulf stream eventually stopping.people that gave this movie a 10 should be embarrassed, is man made carbon emissions making the temp. go up on Mars as well? no, the sun is hotter than ever.Finally, Gore seems content wonderful work of fiction.

    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. Expand

    Complete lack of scientific evidence to back up claims as evidenced by the courtcase in the UK blocking misuse of this inaccurate political film. Only shows one side of the story. History repeats itself, every other planet in our solar system is also heating up to some degree, are the inhabitants on those planets also responsible for the sun changing their non-inhabited planets?

    As liberal propaganda goes, it's no very entertaining. Furthermore, Al Gore makes a very serious mistake when he tries to blame global warming on man. The fact of the matter is that there is very little evidence that global warming is man made, and much more evidence that global warming is cyclical - occurring about ever 1500 years.

    A convenient lie, absolutely no basis in fact, a fallacy.

    FIlled with errors and half truths, it's no wonder the mainstream media loved it. So why is Gore riding around in chartered mega-jets and traveling in 4 car caravans? If he beleived his own material, he would have moved in with the Amish long ago!

    Anyone who watched this movie and thought now they knew everything about this anthropogenic global warming issue is utterly deluded! this movie was nothing but a self-serving propaganda campaign and a scare-mongering strategy! the movie did not address a single argument against the AGW issue and instead delivered a 98 min rhetoric on the "catastrophe" facing mankind! the many inaccuracies Anyone who watched this movie and thought now they knew everything about this anthropogenic global warming issue is utterly deluded! this movie was nothing but a self-serving propaganda campaign and a scare-mongering strategy! the movie did not address a single argument against the AGW issue and instead delivered a 98 min rhetoric on the "catastrophe" facing mankind! the many inaccuracies and blatant lies stated in this movie are so nauseating only a lay person with zero scientific knowledge would buy the ridiculous claims made in 'An Inconvenient Truth'.

    There are two sides to every story, and gore did not come close to presenting the other one. the points he makes are deceptive, and his credibility is low.

    Global warming is as true as Manbearpig.

    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!

    The material was far-flung (at its most truthful) and the little emotional glimpses of Gore writing, or contemplating, or staring out a window were regurgatory. Destined to become a camp classic, or a cult fave for its kitsch. Bleh!

    Is the temperature of the sun constant? No. The sun is the cause of global warming. What a joke.

    It's as if a time-warp transport has put you back into a boring lecture from your first year of college -- this time interspersed with touchy-feely vignettes meant to make you adore your professor personally. Some of the information really is compelling, but it lacks context -- especially, it lacks any serious debate with scientists who disagree with Gore on what global warming trends mean.

    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.
  2. The documentary is an act of political activism. Guggenheim and his politically conscious producers, Laurie David, Lawrence Bender and Scott Z. Burns, have no interest in either challenging Gore's viewpoint or giving opposing opinions equal time. The film is simply a conduit for Gore's message.

    A straightforward record of the lecture Gore has toured for years, juiced by elaborate graphics. An excellent educational tool, picture may prove an awkward fit for theatrical distribution.
