An Inconvenient Truth with Al Gore

As some of you know, I'm a fan of Al Gore and the 2000 election debacle was the day I went from quiet moderate participant to outspoken progressive activist. One of my biggest hopes is that Al Gore enters the 2008 presidential race, if for no other reason than to put the other Democratic candidates on notice that their bullshit Republican-lite routine will guarantee they never get the chance to win the primary.
Here's a link
to some more information about this film and here's
a great review of the movie in the Washington Post from the movies' premiere at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Mr. Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. "Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style, and by the end has everyone on the edge of their seats, gripped by his haunting message," said Guggenheim. An Inconvenient Truth is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry to protect the one earth we all share. "It is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly, and wisely," said Gore.
