I just saw Al Gore's movie about global warming called, "An Inconvenient Truth" and would love to hear from other people who have seen the film.
I think the film does a good job communicating complex information about global warming, and I enjoyed hearing how Gore got interested in the issue, and how he has struggled to articulate the threats global warming poses.
But most of all, the film convinced me that global warming is not just about science, or politics. It is a moral issue that each of us has a responsibility to do something about it. The film has inspired me to lobby lawmakers to write and support meaningful legislation to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and invest in cleaner energy technologies. I will certainly do more to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide my family produces, but I’m determined to demand more leadership on this issue from politicians in office and future candidates, and convince friends and family members to ask the same of their elected officials at all levels of government.
Have you seen the film? How has it affected your opinion about how much of a threat global warming is (or isn’t)? What--if anything--do you want lawmakers to do to address carbon dioxide emissions and the need for cleaner energy? What do you think we as individuals should be doing to address global warming? Do you think this movie is the beginning of an Al Gore comeback and possible run for the presidency in 2008?
