A new movie about global warming titled ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ based on former US Vice President Al Gore’s personal journey of discovery will be out soon.
Produced by Paramount Classics the trailer has already been released, click here to watch.
I received the link with the note: “In a macabre way, this is gripping and the absolute epitome of the propaganda-maker’s art.”
Interestingly Al Gore makes comment in the trailer that global warming is not a political issue, it is a moral issue.
I heard sociologist and public commentator Frank Furedi speak at the Brisbane Ideas Festival late March, and he commented that global warming was not a moral issue, but a technological issue.
I tend to agree wtih Furedi, once we move beyond fossil fuels as a main source of energy, carbon dioxide emissions will nolonger be the issue they are now.
But Al Gore and others will keep pushing the moral arguement. And as I have previously mentioned at this blog, click here, there will be a book out also called ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Al Gore and Al Gore is working with major environment groups in the US on a new consortium with the aim of running a “campaign of public persuasion” about global warming and its consequences.
