I haven’t seen it, but Jeff Master’s review of “An Inconvenient Truth”, the Al Gore movie, seems a good and fair review of not just the movie, but the environmental impact and sciences behind the truth about global warming.
The science presented is mostly good, and at times compelling, but there are a few errors and one major distortion of the truth. Gore does an excellent job focusing on the most important issues, and usually presents them with a minimum of hype and distortion. The only exception to this comes in his treatment of global warming and extreme weather events such as hurricanes.
The points Masters makes on the complex issues of global warming and human impact on the planet are very compelling and honest. Definitely worth a read.
As a side note, doesn’t anyone use the word “pollution” any more? It appears to be a lost word. Pollution is what is killing our planet. Not global warming. If global warming has a direct cause and effect related to humans, it’s from pollution. Pollution and abuse of the land causes more deaths, more illness, and more disease than global warming today. By reducing pollution levels globally, everyone benefits, including the planet. Let’s stop polluting. Bring back micro-awareness of what we all can do to stop polluting and it doesn’t stop with just picking up a piece of paper.
