In Al Gore’s documentary An Inconvenient Truth, he takes on the mammoth task of educating the world on the seriousness of global warming, intermixing his own exploration of data and predictions on the topic to deliver a powerful message that climate change could spell disaster for us all.

Gore states, “I’ve been trying to tell this story for a long time, and I feel as if I’ve failed to get the message across.”

The former vice president opens by greeting the audience with a joke: “I am Al Gore; I used to be the next President of the United States.”

Throughout the movie, Gore expresses to the audience his views on climate change, as well as the effects global warming will have in the future.

He stresses that climate change “is really not a political issue, so much as a moral one,” describing the consequences he believes global climate change will produce if the amount of human-generated greenhouse gasses is not significantly reduced in the very near future.

Parts of the documentary are intended to prove critics whose theory on global warming is will be insignificant. During the movie, Gore also talks about the on-going threat of major ice sheets collapsing in Greenland or West Antarctica. If either of these two ice sheets were to melt, we could see ocean levels rise by 20 feet, causing flooding to coastal areas and resulting in millions of refugees.

An Inconvenient Truth is a straightforward but powerful documentary film that illuminates some of the myths surrounding both of its subjects equally well.
