An Inconvenient Truth (2006)

In the harrowing, fact-based Best Documentary Feature Academy Award winner about the threat of global warming:

  • former Vice President Al Gore's (Himself) opening line: "I used to be the next President of the United States of America"
  • his masterful use of slides, computer graphs and photos - a multimedia lecture that he had delivered hundreds of times, to illustrate the disastrous results of global warming
  • his poignant recounting of the tragic lung-cancer death of his sister Nancy in their tobacco-growing Southern family - explaining how he wished that we could "connect the dots" more quickly
"Global Warming or: None Like It Hot"
  • the short clip "Global Warming or: None Like It Hot" from the animated TV show Futurama, from a 2002 episode in which he guest-starred, about the effects of greenhouse gases
  • his descriptions, illustrated by before-and-after photographs of the effects of global warming on various landmarks, such as the mountain peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and on glaciers at the poles
  • the famous scene in which he used a scissors-style fork lift to raise himself up on the right side of a mammoth graphic to examine annual temperature and the drastically high, rising rate of CO2 emissions levels for the past 650,000 years, measured by Antarctic ice core samples
  • his ultimate conclusion: "I don't really consider this a political issue, I consider it to be a moral issue"; the closing credits included recommendations in answer to the question: "Are you ready to change the way you live?"
