"Humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb. If the vast majority of the world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced."
Â Al Gore's documentary film (which has been nominated for an Oscar in the documentary film category) is a must-see. I can see this film as a great resource for starting discussions in an Environmental Education middle- or high-school class. While the movie focuses mainly on the issue of global warming, it will not take much for a teacher to extend the ideas to topics such as the water crisis, renewable and alternate energy sources, sustainable living...the list is endless. A fabulous effort by the man who introduced himself as - "I'm Al Gore, I used to be the next president of the United States of America."
A quotable quote mentioned in the film (among many) - "You can't make somebody understand something if their salary depends upon them not understanding it." - Upton Sinclair
