A definite must-see. Watch it, if you've not done so yet. It will change your life. Everyone on this planet should see this film. Rent it from Netflix. Purchase a copy. Pass it around. A hard-hitting message with hope for a turn-around.
I had thought that the movie we are working on about new energy solutions available now and shortly in the future, could be the follow-up film that has even more impact that An Inconvenient Truth until I watched the movie for the first time, myself, this evening.
Renewable energy will certainly help turn things around, but there are a number of other areas that need to be addressed as well to remedy the mess we've made of this planet. An Inconvenient Truth is a turning point; it is a broad spectrum film that addresses a wide range of issues, and identifies a problem we face together as a planetary body, one of the solutions of which is renewable energy advancement.
One area not addressed by the film is spirituality and civility, and that is being addressed in other venues. But the film does make a very strong case that we as a human race must add our responsibility toward the planet to our list of moral obligations to which we will need to answer.
