Global warming is real, and its detrimental effects are happening right now. Those are the key points that former Vice President Al Gore relentlessly stresses, through hard-core facts that can no longer be denied. Gore has been traveling the globe delivering his eye-opening presentation about this man-made epidemic that is killing our planet. Now, he and director Davis Guggenheim have teamed up to reach a larger audience. In laymans terms using informative graphs, animations and jaw-dropping photographs, Gore explains how our excessive burning of fossil fuels has increased carbon dioxide levels, temperatures, sea levels, occurrences of natural disasters and hazardous infrared rays. Gore is not preachy or patronizing; he is passionate and persistent. We caused this ecological problem. Now we need to reverse it. Start by turning off your lights and carpooling to see this film.
