Summary
"Former Vice President Al Gore presents an eye-opening and compelling view of the future of our planet -- and our civilization -- in the must-see documentary of the year. This is a wake-up call that cuts through myths and misconceptions to deliver the message that global warming is a real and present danger. An Inconvenient Truth brings home Gore's persusave argument that we must act now to save the earth. Each and every one of us can make changes in the way in which we live our lives and become part of the solutions."--Container notes
