An Inconvenient Truth starring Al Gore. Too much Al Gore featured, was an unfortunate distraction from the facts presented. Did not find Al Gore at all inspiring, his ego got in the way for me....which seemed to extinguish any sense of passion I might otherwise have felt from him...though it may have been the fault of those camera person's who just found him simply irresistable! Sadly, an opportunity missed, it is never enough to state the facts, however much the facts ring true. I don't believe there is any room for self in the process of engagement, Al Gore lacks a sense of humility to connect him to humanity. Sorry Al, stars are for the message rather than the messenger...my inconvenient truth.

Seeing Al Gore as a real public servant is enlightening and satisfying. This documentary is a must-see for every citizen who thinks global warming is a myth... well, maybe just every citizen. This is Gore's REAL work. . . informing and educating us about a matter so serious, only someone with his profile could convince us of our responsibilities to the planet. Really good stuff.
