An Inconvenient Truth
By bblfish on Nov 23, 2006
The DVD for An Inconvenient Truth the film by Al Gore, has just come out in the United States. It has been some time that I was looking to see it, but kept missing it during my travels. I borrowed the last remaining copy from the local video store here in Berkeley. This should be required viewing - to be seen in conjunction with Koyaanisquatsi.
The most important evaluative judgments we have to make, is to decide which of our problems are the most important, the one we need to put all our energy to tackle. Is it the scratch on our car (for those who have one), the television that is not working, a parent that is in danger, the nation that is at risk, or the world itself that is out of balance? This film helps put these priorities in clear perspective, by drawing our attention to the big changes that have been occurring in the last fifty years, that we might not have taken any notice of, as they occurred a little too slowly.
