    Al Gore, the politician, spouting out about how they should start to regulate everything so his masters can get rich, pure propaganda. A little research or better still dig deep and you’ll soon understand why there are 30000 ACTUAL scientists suing him for promoting this travesty, open your eyes people you’re being had! Carbon dioxide - the bad guy, don’t make me laugh!

    It's clear the other comments against this film are from people who refuse to believe the scientific evidence, ignore them, it is very informative and provides a lot of evidence :)

    A great eye opener to the current situation. I dont think it really takes much, even without evidence, to see that we are having an detrimental effect on the planet. What we commulatively do in our lives can clearly have an effect on our surroundings- put so well by the analogy of the frog gore makes. MUST WATCH The irony of some peoples comments in fact supports what gore believe is the underlying problem preventing progression in fighting climate change- people being ignorant and ignoring what is clearly in front of them.

    Taken from the Daily Telegraph 2007 "Al Gore's environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth contains nine key scientific errors, a High Court judge ruled yesterday. The judge declined to ban the Academy Award-winning film from British schools, but ruled that it can only be shown with guidance notes to prevent political indoctrination. In the documentary, directed by Davis Guggenheim, the former US vice president and environmental activist calls on people to fight global warming because "humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb". But Judge Michael Burton ruled yesterday that errors had arisen "in the context of alarmism and exaggeration" in order to support Mr Gore's thesis on global warming."

    Not a documentary. As factual as Katie Prices boobs are real. Al Gore only did this for attention which he lives off. There are no facts in this film which just proves Al Gore knows nothing. It says the film is shocking and terrifying. These facts are true. Its shocking people believe this and is terrifying as we have to look at Al Gore face for 2 hours telling us false facts on something which is basically a myth. If Al Gore wanted to stop global warming he would of stopped flying around the world telling people of the effects of global warming and how its happening. All this film should of been is a day in the life of al gore and we would of probably seen everything he says is ruining the environment in one day of his life. OVERALL DO NOT WATCH YOU WILL WASTE 2 HOURS OF YOUR LIFE WATCHING A SWEATY LOSER OF A MAN PREACH TO A GROUP OF DUMB PEOPLE WHO WILL BELIEVE ANYTHING AS LONG AS SOMEONE WHO IS WELL KNOWN IS SAYING. NOTHING IS FACT ITS JUST FICTION. DONT WATCH P.S SHOULDNT BE IN DOCUMENTARY SECTION BUT FANTASY SECTION ALONGSIDE HARRY POTTER AS IT IS PROBABLY MORE TRUTHFUL THAN THIS DO NOT WATCH

    A slideshow made up of a gigantic smokescreen led by a man who flies around the world in a private fuel guzzling jet and lives in a very energy hungry house. They even use special effects lifted from "The Day After Tomorrow" movie, in the film. Don't let Al Gore pull the wool over your eyes.

    Over 5 Years ago this documentary was reviewed as part of a UK Court Case and it was found to be sorely lacking in both facts or real science. So why this appears in the "documentary" section is something of a mystery. Al Gore, uses emotive prose and staged pictures to paint a picture of the world that doesn't exist and distorts the facts to his own ends. He shows the diminished on Mount Fuji, but neglects to mention it's an active volcano. He shows a polar bear swimming, without mentioning that's how they spend most of their time. He even goes on to draw the conclusion that because a population in one area in Canada had fallen a percent (actual numbers around 20 polar bears) that ALL polar bears are dying out. Despite this being shown to be false by the very researches who provided most of his polar bear footage. What's worse is that this film acts as a catalyst for people to buy into products he's heavily invested in. If that's not a conflict of interest, I'm not sure what is!
