An Inconvenient Truth

| | Comments (0)

I just finished watching Al Gore's documentary, An Inconvenient Truth and I must say it was quite eye opening. Much like Morgan Spurlock's Supersize Me opened my eyes to the relationship between convenience, laziness, irresponsiblity, and health issues, Gore's An Inconvenient Truth showed logical information, experiences, studies, and examples of how global warming is likely to be a real and serious threat.

If you haven't seen the movie, check it out. It's available on DVD (for purchase or rental) and has been playing on Showtime quite a bit this month. It's about 1.5 hours, and will definitely cause you to take a step back and consider things a bit differently.

I used to think Gore was some crackpot tree hugger that liked to make-up stories about how he invented the internet; his history and interest in the environment reaches back into the 70s, and is something that he has always taken a strong stance in favor of. And while I don't believe in hybrid cars (they're not that much more efficient, and the energy epended on making the batteries, charging the batteries, and destroying the batteries is greater than an equally efficient gasoline powered car), I do believe we can improve our current environmental destiny.

Do yourself a favor - check out the movie.
