The dangers of global warming in an inconvenient truth

The dangers of global warming in An Inconvenient Truth. An Inconvenient Truth is a documentary film about climate change caused by global warming. The director is Davis Guggenheim and the presenter is the former United States Vice-President, Al Gore. This essay explores the impact of An Inconvenient Truth on the viewer.
The film tries to analyze data and forecast predictions on the climate changes. The presenter, Al Gore, tells personal anecdotes from his life as an accompaniment to the narration. Gore made a Keynote software presentation, like a slide show, that he presented on an international level. He wants to draw attention to collected evidence on global warming. In summary, global warming is caused by mans activities. Certainly Gore uses the politics of global warming to advance his personal goals in garnering publicity to his various campaigns. Global warming is caused by the increase in average air temperature since the nineteenth century in the 1800s. When humans increase the emission of greenhouse gases, there is global warming. Gores presentation describes the possible consequences of global warming if it is left unchecked. One suggested way of controlling the amount of bad greenhouse gas is to control Mankinds activities that emit greenhouse gases. The viewer is encouraged to be aware of individual responsibility because of the callous attitudes towards the importance of global warming.
This documentary has an argument to support the importance of global warming. It says that one resultant consequence is the warming of temperatures in the Antarctica that can melt ice at a fast rate and raise the sea levels for about 20 feet or 6 meters. This increased depth will flood the low lying coastal regions of all the countries. Residents who have lost homes in the flooded regions will become refugees. Gore says that Hurricane Katrina, which struck in August 2005, is a consequence of global warming. The sea waves reached a maximum of 45 feet or 14 meters because the volume of seawater has increased due to increased global warming. About a million homes in the low coastal regions of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama were destroyed. The living and nonliving resources lost cannot be accounted for.
This documentary ends with a positive note. Gore suggests that the quantities of greenhouse gases can be reduced if Mankind reduces the release of carbon dioxide gas into the atmosphere. Growing more trees and plants will utilize the carbon dioxide during the day when they use that gas for photosynthesis, or making food. Individuals are encouraged to do their parts and help in the global efforts to reduce the causes that attributes to global warming. Global warming is not a political issue. Every person contributes to it and it is a moral issue as each person has to consider the inconvenient sacrifices and choices to reduce the contributions to global warming. Gore says that global warming is a ‘ planetary emergency’ and every ordinary citizen should help combat this. Gore traces the developments of his life and the corresponding global warming changes with a timeline. He gives the impression that when he was a young college student, he was aware of the importance of global warming and has been devoted to this cause ever since. Gore includes the visuals on the destruction caused by flood waters to hammer home the message that ‘ Nothing is scarier than the truth……… an inconvenient truth.’
