The papers have been talking a lot about the Al Gore documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth. This morning’s Ottawa Citizen had a three page(!) article, and multiple sidebar articles.Â ThisÂ write up from the Sydney Film Festival in Australia is particularly good.Â Â
Anyway, the movie isÂ playing here in Ottawa, at theÂ Bytown Cinema,Â until the 18th of June.Â We saw it, and have been discussingÂ it allÂ afternoon and over dinner.Â Some characterize this as a shockumentary, but to me it was relentlessly factual.Â And so I say,Â wherever you are, go see this film.Â This could be the turning point in the climate debate.Â It’s that important, and it’s that good. And Gore, well, he’s wonderful – human, funny, persuasive.Â America – would you had elected this man instead of Bush!
Here’s a Google link to more blog commentary.Â A lot of it is like this:
From Australia: This is one of those films that ALL people should see, no matter which country they’re from.
From Greater Democracy: Who lost the Environment? Who lost 8 precious years that could have made a real difference?
From LadyJayne’s Blog: “An Inconvenient Truth” shows that it’s not too late to make progressive, effective, and constructive change in this country in terms of our political, moral, and natural environment, a change that will be positive for us, and the planet, too.
