‘An Inconvenient Truth’

Over the last few days, I’ve been getting links about “An Inconvenient Truth,” Davis Guggenheim’s documentary about Al Gore’s attempts to bring attention to global warming. I might not have paid too much attention, precisely because of the fact that the film is about a potential presidential candidate, but I have heard very very good things about it, so I do look forward to seeing it. Here is the trailer.

There is also a companion book by Al Gore, also titled An Inconvenient Truth, which Michiko Kakutani reviews in today’s NYT:

Fourteen years ago, during the 1992 campaign, the current president’s father, George Herbert Walker Bush, dismissed Mr. Gore as “Ozone Man” — if the Clinton-Gore ticket were elected, he suggested, “we’ll be up to our neck in owls and out of work for every American” — but with the emerging consensus on global warming today, Mr. Gore’s passionate warnings about climate change seem increasingly prescient. He has revived the slide presentation about global warming that he first began giving in 1990 and taken that slide show on the road, and he has now turned that presentation into a book and a documentary film, both called “An Inconvenient Truth.”
