An Inconvenient Truth DVD: Standard EditionSynopsis: An Inconvenient Truth (2006)
Humanity is sitting
on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are
right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could
send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving
extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves
beyond anything we have ever experienced. A catastrophe we have helped
create. If that sounds like a recipe for serious gloom and doom —
think again. From director Davis Guggenheim comes the Sundance Film
Festival hit, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, which offers a passionate and
inspirational look at one man’s commitment to expose the myths and
misconceptions that surround global warming. That man is former Vice
President Al Gore, who, in the wake of defeat in the 2000 election,
re-set the course of his life to focus on an all-out effort to help
save the planet from irrevocable change. In this eye-opening and
poignant portrait of Gore and his traveling global warming show, Gore
is funny, engaging, open and downright on fire about getting the
surprisingly stirring truth about what he calls our “planetary
emergency” out to ordinary citizens before it’s too late. With 2005,
the worst storm season ever experienced in America just behind us, it
seems we have reached a tipping point – and Gore pulls no punches in
explaining the dire situation. Interspersed with the bracing facts and
future predictions is the story of Gore’s personal journey: from an
idealistic college student who first saw a massive environmental crisis
looming; to a young Senator facing a harrowing family tragedy that
altered his perspective; to the man who almost became President but
instead returned to the most impassioned cause of his entire life –
believing there is still time to make a difference. With wit, smarts
and hope, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH ultimately brings home Gore’s
persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming
as a political issue – rather, it is simply one of the biggest moral
challenges facing every person in our times. — © Paramount Classics
