I always mention that Bakersfield is 3 to 5 years behind the rest of the world. Today I proved this to be a correct statement once again. While browsing around in the Best Buy DVD section, I ran across “An Inconvenient Truth” by Al Gore. I went ahead and picked it up, now take note that I am “picking it up” three years after it was made and had already been a hot topic around the globe. So, I am speculating that a majority of people in Bakersfield have not seen this documentary yet, based on my 3 to 5 year theory.
This is a must see for everybody, whether you believe in global warming or not. I found the video very well made and packed full of valuable information. You can get a used copy for as low as $6.30 on Amazon. Here is the link: “An Inconvenient Truth“.
Here is the trailer: http://www.climatecrisis.net/trailer/
Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Mr. Gore’s personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. “Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style, and by the end has everyone on the edge of their seats, gripped by his haunting message,” said Guggenheim. An Inconvenient Truth is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry to protect the one earth we all share. “It is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly, and wisely,” said Gore.
