Winner of two Oscars, this thought-provoking masterpiece ought to be legislated as “compulsory viewing” throughout the world! Written and produced by former US Vice-President Al Gore (one time a college roommate of actor Tommy Lee Jones): it deals intelligently with global warming, and in a manner which we can understand.

While Mr Gore sticks strictly to facts, he allows humour to reinforce several of the issues he raises – so the running time is never allowed to drag at all. Many of the points he makes are ordinary, though “I-never-thought-of-it-like-that-before!” matters, and deal with our day-to-day lives.

Why the word “Inconvenient” in the title? Because we are made aware that global warming and cooling are largely human caused, that’s why! Appropriately enough, the Oscar-winning song here is called I Need to Wake Up; and is the first time a documentary has ever won such an award.

As one reviewer commented: “If you ignore this, one day you’re going to have to explain very carefully to your grandchildren why you chose to do so!”
Documentary following former 'next president of the United States' Al Gore as he attempts to make the world aware that global warming is a very real threat to mankind. An impassioned Al Gore tirelessly trots the globe giving talks to anyone who'll listen on the only topic he's interested in - the environmental consequences of global warming. Footage from the hundreds of speeches Gore delivers on this matter in a year are interspersed with candid interviews with himself and many other authorities on the subject. Steering clear of judgment of any of the responsible powers, Gore simply puts forward reams of irrefutable fact - combining to form the truth about how we are harming the environment.
