An Inconvenient Truth may not be 100% factual since some is technically speculation at this point. If you have an issue with it then do what the judge in Great Britain suggested as part of using it for the public school curriculum... include the arguments about what is considered speculation. At least think about what the film is trying to convey.
Wedding-related: I know at least one knottie planning on giving this DVD to her guests as a wedding favor.
Gore's Tennessee home... I bring this up because this is the argument that is always presented when talking about Gore and Bush and climate change by conservatives. Gore's home consumes more energy than Bush's Texas ranch... big deal. For me it is not a deal breaker for supporting Mr. Gore because the impacts on this issue that these two men have dwarf their personal use. Anyway, here is an article about Gore's home.
I applaud Al and his efforts. The November prior to the Bush administration taking control of the White House a U. S. Climate Change report was generated by our scientists and shelved. The Bush administration has done little to acknowledge that climate change exists beyond what is considered normal temporal oscillations. I was mighty surprised when Condoleeza Rice came out recently and acknowledged that a consensus needs to be reached on this issue because it is real.
My thoughts are that carbon emissions have been noticeably elevated since the industrial revolution and are having an impact on climate and the environment. We don't know the full extent and won't until the crisis is over (like all ecology studies) but anything we can do now to reduce the impact should be taken. Thank you Al for your efforts to have people besides ecology graduate students and scientists think about this issue. Reaching "Joe America" is hard and I don't know how you did it, but you did. What I can't understand is why some people are SO ANGRY that you are bringing attention to this subject?
