Reaction Paper: an Inconvenient Truth The documentary, An Inconvenient Inconvenient Truth, by Al Gore is an eye opener and also a wake up call for me. I have heard about global warming before, probably probably back in grade school but I knew a little about it or I only knew the meaning of the term global warming. The documentary gave me a deeper understanding understanding of what global warming really is and what will be the conseque consequences nces if we do not do something about it. The way the documentary is presented presented is very effective. Al Gore defined and described global warming in a way a non science-loving-environment science-loving-e nvironmentalist-geek alist-geek would understand. Most likely, that would be the reason why it won so many awards. The documentary showed the basic process of global warming which is the greenhous greenhousee gases are trapping the sun's heat in the earth's atmosphere which makes the earth warm. The greenhouse gases are caused by producing too much CO2. When Al Gore compared the old and new photos of the same place, the difference was very obvious.

Gore’s “slide show” has brought a huge awareness to global warming and calls for more government action action in regard to the climate. climate. The film contains contains a copious amount of fascinating fascinating information. Personally Personally,, the aspects which which stand out most most to me are: the examination examination of annual annual temperature and CO2 levels for the past 650,000, the melting ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, and Philip Cooney. The most visually striking and memorable element of the film was Gore’s impressive graph of the Earth’s
temperature and CO2 CO2 levels for the past past 650,000. The chart not not only illustrated the past but an alarming alarming future. Using ice core samples scientists scientists conclude conclude CO2 levels have have never gone gone above 300 300 parts per million. As of 2005, 2005, there were were approximately approximately 380 parts parts per million. (Brook 2005) 2005) This number is rapidly rapidly climbing each each year. These samples samples come from the the deepest ice core in the word located in East Antarctica Antarctica on a site called called Dome Concordia. Concordia. (Brook 2005) 2005) Using a 10 centimeter centimeter wide drill bit in 3 meter sections, samples are extracted, leading to the t he examination of minute CO2 bubbles within the ancient ice. ice. (Brook 2005) This truly amazing science is vital vital for understandin understandingg the climate crisis. crisis. As CO2 levels go up so does the temperature. temperature. As temperature temperature climbs climbs so do the seas. Thus a large, seemingly
never ending, deadly domino effect begins. An Inconvenient Truth is rich with pictures and computer graphics indicating the effects of rising temperatures. None are more effective then the images of the Larson B ice shelf in the Antarctic Peninsula. From January 31, 2002 to March 5, 2002 about 3,250 km2 of the ice shelf’s area broke apart.

Al Gore also showed graphs and charts showing that every year the production of CO2 is getting higher also earth's temperature is getting warmer. Other nations are trying to do something about global warming. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol is an amendment to the international treaty on climate change, assigning mandatory emission limitations for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to the signatory nations. The objective of the protocol is the stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. Unfortunately, United States did not ratify the Kyoto Protocol even if they are the country with the highest production or emission of CO2. It is just too sad that some US officials are ignoring and neglecting the global warming issue for the sake of progress. They are too concerned about power and...
The documentary of Al Gore is very interesting, because it does not only give you information about global warming but also it will awaken you to take good care of our mother earth. It clearly
showed the environmental conditions our planet is facing. Part of the reason why I like it was that Gore presents a powerful message that combines factual information, humor and, ultimately, hopes. I really like how Al Gore relates his life story with what was happening in the earth, especially global warming. I was shocked that there was already big increase on carbon dioxide emission. I don't like the fact that he put some issues in politics, especially on what happened in 2000 presidential election in America . The global warming issue was properly and well explained by giving so animations, graphics, and video clips. I realized how much we take our actions for granted, never giving any thought if those actions will have negative impact on the environment. I really like what he said in the documentary, “We no longer have much time left to change, but we do have time.” I was awakened by the documentary and it made me feel that it's our time to secure our future. I learned that if we are humane enough about the issue of global warming, we must encourage ourselves to make the change. Indeed, An Inconvenient Truth hits sharp and it hits hard. If you love our mother earth, watch it. No wait, don't just watch it, do something. Start making changes, to save the earth for ourselves and the next generation who will inherit it.
We people must take care of what we have, especially our only home, the planet which had the ability to grow and is capable of giving everything in existence, the one and only Earth. Earth’s nature is the most precious gift that God has given us, so in return, we must take good care of it and not ignoring its climate crisis. Based on the movie, it the facts of the differences of Earth’s topography and nature nowadays compared to the times long ago. The differences of the facts were caused by this intriguing global warming that alarmed all the people in the world. This global warming is the result of the gradual increase of greenhouse gases in the ozone layer, thus trapping the sun’s heat in the earth’s atmosphere. These greenhouse gases result from human activities like fossil fuel burning, and deforestation. By this, we cans see results like the melting of glaciers, permafrost, extreme weather events, species extinctions, changes in nature, and etc. Upon seeing this, it turned out to be a wake-up call for me. It made me cautious about this topic, making me anxious for instant help to our Earth. I hope people will also feel what I feel for this problem. For this is the problem that is the hardest for us because it signifies all existing living things are in danger. It’s good to know what is stated on the movie, that many governments and countries supported the Kyoto
Protocol’s aim at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It is such a relief for me knowing that some are also interested in solving this problem, because we cannot make this possible if people won’t go with you. But many others still ignored this problem even though this crisis is very obvious in our nature. I hope they can watch this film and realize what is to be realized. Everything’s not yet too late. We can still have the chance to solve this climate crisis such as planting more trees, use electricity less, use water less, use cars less, and especially supporting any environment solutions. Because of this movie, I now learned what is global warming very clearly and made me alert on this problem because I only know very little about this and I thought it is just not that troublesome in our lives. I hope this movie will be widely watched and embrace people to work up on this climate crisis. Lastly, all I can say is “Spread the word”.
An Inconvenient Truth Reaction Paper The award winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, by Al Gore is an eye opener and somehow it is a wake up call for me. I have heard about global warming way back high school and heard it often when I entered college. I knew the meaning of the term global warming and that was it. I knew a little about it, what causes global warming and how fatal are its effects to Earth. And honestly, I never really cared. I was one of those people who treat it very lightly and after watching An Inconvenient Truth I was caught off guard by the concrete and hard fact. After watching the documentary I knew what Earth’s big time enemy is today, and that is global warming. The documentary gave me a deeper understanding of what global warming really is and what will be the consequences if we do not do something about it. The way the documentary is presented is very effective. Al Gore defined and described global warming in a way a nonscience-loving-environmentalist-geek would understand. He also adds humor to it by presenting some animated slide show in between explanations. Most likely, the simplicity of the presentation and the thorough explanation are the reasons why the documentary received so many
It started with the presentation of the basic process of global warming which is the greenhouse gases are trapping the sun’s heat in the earth’s atmosphere which makes the earth warm. The greenhouse gases are caused by producing too much Carbon Dioxide. I was really shocked when he started showing the comparison of the old and new photographs of the same places, the difference is really obvious. I can see that it is still that place but the changes are really shocking. The glaciers are starting to melt and melting fast. The next slides were the chart presentations of how the production of Carbon Dioxide is getting higher, how the Earth’s temperature is getting warmer and how glaciers are melting faster that it is some years ago. The documentary continued on some other effects of global warming to Earth. One of these is the alteration of the ecological processes. How extinct animals will someday be wiped out off Earth and how some illnesses and diseases brought by insects will be spread out globally because of the changes brought by global warming. And one effect I was really concerned is the melting of glaciers that will erase some places in the map of the world. That is really disturbing I should say. How can that happen? But then again, Al Gore showed and presented evidences that will make that dreadful scene possible. The documentary may have included some political issues, in fact the documentary earned a lot of criticism because of that, but all in all it opened my mind to the issues of global warming. And one thing is for sure, I will make an effort to at least minimize the causes of global warming in my own little ways.
