An Inconvenient Truth

Since we seem to be having another scorcher of a week here in Denver, finishing up this book isn't making the heat any easier. :)

Not to confuse weather with climate, but it does drive the issue home when you're sweating bullets at the same time.

Haven't seen the movie yet, but based on the pictures, graphs and text in here, I can understand why Gore's slideshow is a popular one, and why it was made into a movie.

I understand a little better why companies such as BP have come on board the whole AGW issue. Not that I would condone this, but if things really do get as bad as some of the worst predictions, executives from Big Oil and Big Coal will be the first up against a wall (metaphorically most likely if the damage is minimal, maybe much worse if the damage is on the far worse edge of the predictions), especially if they are paying for a disinformation campaign much like Big Tobacco did for decades. If companies like BP show that they abandoned that campaign, they may not get hit so hard.

Agreed re:your viewpoints.

Trent Reznor highly recommended this movie on his site. I've heard nothing but good things about it, but have yet 2C it as well.
