“An Inconvenient Truth Review”
Many people have heard little about global warming, some have heard nothing at all. The documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, by Al Gore is an excellent way for people to learn about what “Global Warming” is, how it affects us, and what can we do to prevent this problem from becoming irreparable. Al Gore presents the meaning of global warming in a non-scientific way that is easy for everybody to understand. There is simply no reason why a person could not understand this film. Al Gore does a great job conveying his message in a simplistic way.
During the documentary, I was concerned on how global warming was affecting the rivers, lakes, and mountains around the world. Once Mr. Gore showed this in the film, the evidence was devastating. Then I got more worried, because I knew that this issue could in fact grow and become worse if we do not take action. This film presents at the end many ways in which we can contribute to help the Earth, which was great. These easy things can make a big change and can prevent our planet from having a disastrous end. People can also visit a webpage that provides more examples, so that we can all invest in this movement. I think everybody, including myself, should be doing something about this problem, because it already started having consequences on our country, and some other countries in a horrific way leaving thousands of people without a home to live.
Maybe something that would encourage us to take action is to think about the future, not only our future, but our future generations. I think most of us have kids or at least plan to have kids someday, and if things keep going the way it is today they will not have a beautiful and healthy planet to live in. If we do not do something today, we will regret it tomorrow. I personally struggle with this issue. How can I help? What can I do? Where do I start? I am very grateful
