An inconvenient truth

Filed under: Movie — Randomizer @ 4:13 am

So I *finally* got around to renting out the ‘Inconvenient Truth‘ DVD and watching it earlier this week, and I must say, I felt like kicking myself for not having watched it earlier. If you are one of those people who still think that the terms ‘debate’, ‘exaggeration’ or worst of all, ‘myth’ are associated with Global Warming, then do yourself a favor and watch this movie. I know there is a certain amount of appeal in being a ‘skeptic’, but trust me, this is not one of those cases where its cool – its just plain ol’ ignorant.

The movie does shake you, for what it shows is not a bunch of subtle hints or vague patterns establishing this phenomena, but graphs and statistics and facts that just scream into your face. I found the explanations and the evidence very convincing, and I’m sure you will too.

I am honestly embarrassed to admit that up until last week, I was of the misguided belief that global warming was an issue that was of importance in the long run, and not one that needed immediate concern. I thought it was one of those ‘if-this-gradual-process-goes-on-for-another-50-to-100-years, then so-and-so will happen’ things. Jeez, how wrong I was.

I am sure most of you have watched this by now, or if not, have at least done a better job than I had in finding out the facts by reading up on it yourselves. If not, please consider this post as an alarm bell, and watch this movie as soon as you can.

  3. Hello
    I came across your blog while searching for something else in Google. And I am glad I found it. You have interesting points that I agree a lot.

    As for your post on inconvenient truth which I have not seen yet, please read Micheal Crichton’s “State of Fear” which appears to be more controversial and against all facts of the generic knowledge, calls Global Warming a lie.

  5. Actually Al Gore was sued in the UK for propagation of lies. See the “Fact” he presents have little or no basis in reality. In reality the population of polar bears in on the rise. For Al the truth is inconvenient.
