I have more than 20 years experience in the environmental field - and I was impressed with this presentation. I would have arranged some items a bit differently. I feel the 'things you can do to help' should display before the credits start to run. Most people don't watch the credits.

Recycling has a huge impact, as well as driving less, driving more efficiently, anything to get more cars off the road. Gore mentions to not drink 'bottled water' - reuse the bottles and recycle after two weeks or get a few lovely re-usable bottle from your sporting goods supplier. I filter tap water - I KNOW what's in it and I chose to not BE a filter. With many municipalities fluoridating water - bottled non-fluoridated water is a must for many.

A good companion piece to watch AFTER this DVD would be 'Who Killed the Electric Car'. If you are not amazed at the lies about alternative fuel after you watch this movie, then there is no hope left.

Watch the movies, and get involved. If we are not part of the solution, then we are part of the problem. There ARE things we can do, if we work together.

Take care, my friends, and take action.

This is a powerful film. The scenes of retreating glaciers will shock you. Al Gore gives you the science behind global warming, and makes it very easy to understand. While this film may disturb you about the extent the damage caused by global warming, it is not at all hopeless. It is made clear that we can and must do something about it, and it tells you how. Buy the book too.

"Review" by , "In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film. If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to."
"Review" by , "Al Gore brings his campaign to reverse global warming to the big screen in this vivid and vital activist movie."
"Review" by , "Gore has brought all the scattered news stories together in one briskly narrated, handsomely illustrated place, and the power of his points is striking. Sobering. Ultimately alarming."
