Must See for Everyone: Climate Change is a World Crisis
In 2005, I evacuated from Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, where the eye of one of the biggest Hurricanes on record hit the United States: Hurricane Katrina. It was inconvenient! Natural disasters are not a new phenomenon, but this movie and the first "Inconvenient", based on facts, show how and why these disasters are increasing both in frequency and intensity. There are a lot of problems that we face as a nation and world, but if we don't do anything different and continue this path all the other problems won't matter. When the Hurricane came, there was only one thing on our mind, how to survive. Most of the homes on the beach and inland several hundreds of feet were completely wiped out with only the cement foundation remaining. I saw the original movie in 2006 and was inspired by his ability to use his celebrity status to bring this issue front and center of our consciousness. Some critics are saying Al Gore is a hypocrite because he has a big house that requires a lot of energy to maintain. This is an example of stating a claim that doesn't include all the information. See: http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/gorehome.asp for a clearer view of reality. Such is true of those who deny that climate change is real. Some see cold winters as evidence that global warming is a hoax. This view is ignoring the all the facts. The sequel focused on Al Gore's training for climate change which I consider a most honorable and effective way to spread the information. There were a few moments where it shows that VP Gore brings up his losing the Presidency, which doesn't really add to the issue of the climate change crisis other than that was the cross-roads for him to jump with both feet into his efforts to educate the world. His efforts are twofold; In addition to admitting there is a real problem we need to commit to doing something about it. I was impressed with his interview with the mayor of Georgetown, Texas, a deep red state. They have reached100 percent renewable energy and the mayor, although admitted he was a republican, indicated that everyone could benefit from putting "less toxins" in the air. This underlines the point that you don't have to believe in climate change to want clean air. Climate change is not a new issue and Al Gore doesn't take credit for its discovery. He is, however, devoted to educating the world on the importance of this vital issue and what we as a civilization can do. I went to this movie, partly to support this project, and partly learn more. I wasn't expecting to be entertained in the sense of a "feel good" movie, however this movie does show progress, despite our POTUS ignoring this issue and pulINGl out of the Paris Climate agreement. Despite our lack of leadership in the White House (2017 this will hopefully change), the rest of the country and world are still on board and this movie shows the progress being made. See: http://www.go100percent.org/cms/index.php?id=17 for a glimpse of cities all over the country and world committed to renewable energy.
If you don't want to spend the money or time to watch this move, there is a free 10 min clip (that he plugs at the end) that you can watch (and share): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jxi-OlkmxZ4 I was inspired by the facts, presentation and current efforts that are happening all over the world. Thank you Al Gore!
