An Inconvenient Truth

Eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Gore’s personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. The film is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry.

It is ironic that so many people in 2000 figured it was all big money politics and they voted for Nader, figuring that the difference between a Gore Presidency and a Bush Presidency would not be significant. And so it became close enough that the other side found a way to steal the election.

It wasn't more than a few days after the election results were official that President-elect Bush rolled out a plan of massive tax cuts, squandering the surplus (which Al Gore had pegged during the campaign to pay down the national debt and do cover the cost of insuring 42 million people who lacked health care insurance.) Pretty soon we knew the real George W. Bush-- rigid, inflexible, and insistent on getting his way on everything. John Ashcroft, his pick for Attorney General made it clear that a broad assault on individual rights in favor of more governmental power would be in the offering.

After about a year of recovery from the stolen election, we also saw more of the real Al Gore. He spoke out early and often against the avalanche of fear-mongering that was used to build support for a war in Iraq. Before the war, most people in politics were afraid to openly speak out against it, but Al Gore did that.

Oh, the people who voted for Nader by saying 'they're all the same' about Bush and Gore, were so horribly, horribly wrong. Recently Gore said he has no plans to run in 2008. And who can blame the man? He had big plans to move the country forward, but he knows that if he became President now, he'd have to clean up Bush's mess instead, and have virtually nothing to work with.
