Some of the information 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. Expand

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

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!

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 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. Expand

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

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 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.

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 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? The ice is actually increasing in Antarctica. There are two sides to every story, this is just one. Expand

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?
