An Inconvenient Truth (2006)
Really interesting educational science movie about the dangers of global warming and the effects it has had on the earth particularly in the last 50 years. I learned a lot from this movie but a lot of it I'm not sure of it's validity. For example, pictures are shown over a period of 50 years, but not told whether it's winter or summer. I also didn't like was it seemed that Al Gore was "selling" himself a little by dramatizing his loss of presidency and making jokes about the Republican party. I think he would have sold his point a lot stronger if he had not included this and made more validity to his points. I am very hesitant of conspiracy theories, especially ones from people who's electric bill in a month is more than I pay the whole year. Gore doesn't seem to live his belief. Nonetheless, the movie is really insightful and gave some ideas on how to help the environment.
