Directed by Davis Guggenheim in 2006, this 96-minute documentary delves into former United States Vice President Al Gore's campaign to educate people about global warming.
Although some critics claimed that Gore used a biased presentation to exploit the fears of the public for his own political gain, I view this film as an eye-opening and science-based presentation for the sake of the humans and the Earth.

(*The following is a typical politician's response when asked what is being done about global warming*) - "Well, we'll deal with it tomorrow."

(*Note*) - This "Al Gore" production of "An Inconvenient Truth" was originally produced back in 2006 which makes its information somewhat out-of-date (but, all the same, still quite relevant) when addressing the mega-serious issue of escalating global warming.

Since 2006 a follow-up documentary had been released back in 2017 (also by Gore & friends) that clearly showed that this entire planet is, indeed, in big-big trouble if we humans don't collectively wake up and act now to bring about a drastic change to all of our polluting.

Anyway - Even though this presentation is now 13 years old, I still think that it's well-worth a view for all of the clear warnings that it stresses in regards to our endless ways of contaminating the Earth's environment.

This movie is not a bad production but very outdated. Find a updated video on global warming.

Regardless of what Stanley has to say, here, some 9 years later, it is so absolutely obvious that the concerns expressed here are what is currently taking place.

It is like Rick Santorum, who CONSTANTLY talks about Climate Change (as a Flat Earther), whining about Pope Francis expressing his strong concerns about Climate Change and Man's involvement. And specifically about the Pope not being qualified to talk about such a subject.... And then it being brought out that Santorum, a Roman Catholic (with NO science background) did not even know that the Pope has a Master's Degree in Chemistry and is extremely well studied in Environmental Science.

When over 98% of Climate Change scientists and Environmental Science experts agree that Climate Change is real and that Man has had a significant impact on its occurrence, well, it is time to stop making silly ideological comments and start working together to turn things around - if not too late!

See also the similar documentary from 2008 titled "The 11th Hour". Very good also.

-Ice ages have been coming and going for eons. -The last 20 years have shown zero warming.
-Man produces less than 1/2 of 1 percent of C02 on the planet.
-It was warmer in the 15th century than it is now.
-The greatest warming in the 20th century was between 1935 and 1950.

Childish drivel for people who have the absolute minimum understanding of earth science.

Brought to you by the same guy who gave you NAFTA.

He stands to make mega-millions off of carbon trading.

I salute 2 Al Gore. I havent read the book but I plan 2 read it sometime...but from what I hav watched....he teaches how global warming will effect the earth in 10 yrs or so if we dont act up...the earth will flood, the ice caps are already melting and the animals are losing their homes..its just terrible...the Earth is at risk now even in 2012 with earthquakes, hot summers, fires, hurricanes, etc...the problem is that sum ppl dnt really care or dnt pay attention 2 these issues..cmon ppl act up! We can save the planet !...just this or read it

A few people of the Flat World Society have denounced this film. Is it because global warming doesn't exist? Is it because there is no climate crisis? I remember reading about the effects of greenhouse gases since 1980 school textbooks. I think it's safe to say that Al Gore didn't create global warming in his mind in 2005. So, what is the motive of these people, then? That's easy: addressing the climate crisis rocks the boat of the current energy profiteers who know that alternative energy and wind turbines will affect the way the natural gas and oil industry is perceived, hence the contemporary American marketing firms and p.r. campaigns where expensive lobbyists have been known to buy a U.S. congressperson or two, and dump money into smearing those with strong alternative energy convictions. Now that I've said that, I can defend this movie on its justified claims! I took Astronomy at a university in 2006, and my own text book had a whole chapter on this subject that contains a few of the same, exact charts and data that was used in Mr. Gore's film to discuss the existence of the climate crisis: "The Essential Cosmic Perspective," 4th ed. I'm talking about this film as a documentary, but as a film, it well-exceeded expectations. It is quite masterfully done. It never bores like other documentaries. This film is one of the five best of its year, and the people who rate this with bomb ratings are people who are siding with energy industry's public relations marketing as justification to ignore the quality of the film based on the issue that motivates it rather than the film as a work of art.
