An Inconvenient Truth









I first saw the announcement about this movie from the World Wildlife Fund e-newsletter. I watched a movie about our Oceans and the Life therein some months ago. Though it was rich and colorful, the orchestral music at times made my mind draw blanks, and my companion snore.

Not so with this movie. It's a presentation of facts by no other than Al Gore about the current trend and effect of global warming. He presents numerous data and photos substantiating the global warming phenomenon and it is indeed very disturbing.

Within 50 years, we will have fresh water shortage.
Why are we having typhoons and hurricanes of magnitudes never seen before?
What will happen to land masses when the glaciers in the North and South Pole melt?

This movie is an excellent educational material not only for viewing by students but by people from all walks of life. It explains in plain detail and with illustrations what global warming is.

Sit in his lecture and you will learn a fact or two about what is happening in the world around us today. And it will move you to think about your lifestyle, and how to make a difference.

Click on the button above to pledge to see the movie. Currently showing in SM Mall of Asia and SM Megamall.

    ey watson, saw this docu too on dvd just 2 days ago. gore and the film itself strike me as reasonable, sensible and sober in their presentation. nothing alarmist--which makes the message all the more scary given the general apathy out there. those shots of disappearing glaciers were very disturbing. waaah, wala na ang snows of kilimanjaro and we've not been there! :)
