Czech President Vaclav Klaus joined some of the people last week, who deny that global warming exists. ‘I don't think that there is any global warming,’ Klaus stated, ‘I don't see the statistical data for that.’ (source: February 1, 2009). After hearing this, we found a film to suggest to Mr. Klaus, since it seems he has never cracked open a book on environmental science. AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, starring Al Gore, and directed by Davis Guggenheim is as relevant of a documentary today, as it was several years ago. And with people like Klaus running around in power, and the state of our environment, it is highly necessary viewing.

In An Inconvenient Truth, Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change in what was the most talked-about documentary at Sundance when it was released.

An audience and critical favorite, An Inconvenient Truth makes the compelling case that global warming is real, man-made, and its effects will be cataclysmic if we don’t act now. Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way, often humorous, frequently emotional, and always fascinating. In the end, An Inconvenient Truth accomplishes what all great films should, it leaves the viewer shaken, involved and inspired.
