The Cottonwood Institute recently hosted another "Change the World Movie Night" at the Fluid Coffee Bar in Denver, Colorado with a screening of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore put presidential and political ambitions behind him and is on a mission to raise an awareness about global warming and climate change. He does a solid job explaining global warming in basic terms as well as presenting persuasive graphs, data, and footage showing the effects of global warming and the dangerous impact that it will have on the future.
My one criticism of the film is that Al Gore could have spent more time on what people can do to take action. There is great information about simple things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint on their website at http://www.climatecrisis.net/takeaction/. The truth is shocking, but taking action must be convenient and I think this starts with awareness and education.
