An Inconvenient Note

My wife and I saw a movie in downtown Missoula last night, “An Inconvenient Truth“. I came out moved, despite having heard about global warming for many years, I was shocked at how bad it really is, and how well understood the crisis is. Please please, if you care about the planet, check out the film. It was very well done, and it deserves your attention. At the very least, you’ll be more prepared in case we don’t turn the tide. It’s pretty clear Katrina was a result of global warming, and Katrina will look like a picnic if the trends aren’t significantly reversed. Here’s the official site for the movie, www.climatecrisis.net.

  1. Thanks for the link and review. I have been meaning to see this movie, but have yet to make it happen. I continue to be amazed by the ignorance of some of my friends, who not only avow that global warming is a myth, but also decry Al Gore and this movie The Inconvenient Truth, refusing to even consider seeing it.

  2. Thanks Troy! It’s not about partisan politics. Even Bush has finally acknowledged the reality of global warming and climate change.

    Turning a blind eye to an oncoming train won’t stop you from getting hit by it. After seeing “An Inconvenient Truth”, I was really shocked at the level of my skepticism, and how clear the scientific evidence has been for decades. The documentary lays out the evidence. I’ve been to Alaska and seen the receding glaciers. The beautiful Glacier National Park in my own state of Montana will have to be renamed in not too many years if trends continue. The glaciers are melting away. The evidence is clear, you just have to open your eyes, and at least be willing to listen to the scientists instead of the propagandists who write to appease the oil companies and the people who feel it’s more convenient to not have to change, and just to turn their back to the oncoming freight train.

    Well, I guess I’m a little angry about folks like that, but the movie gives me hope, and I know a lot of people do care. The real solutions are going to take a lot of dialog, but we don’t have a lot of time. It’s going to take awareness of politics, economics, and spiritual truths, not just climatology. And the Let’s not shy away from inconvenient truths because we don’t want to change. The change is coming whether we like it or not, the question is how dramatic the change has to be.
