This movie, The Doctored Truth, is nothing but propoganda, and scientifically it is questionable. Al Gore presents scientific data that looks very nice and persuasive. However, he takes much out of context. For example, he shows RECENT data (past 50 yesrs) that shows CO2 levels rising, and temperatures with it. He did show ice core data that shows temperature and CO2 levels going back hundreds of thousands of years. But what he failed to disclose is that the CO2 levels rose AFTER the temperature increased. What this suggests is that the CO2 concentration increase is an EFFECT OF GLOBAL WARMING, NOT THE CAUSE!!! You may ask how is an increase in CO2 level an effect of global warming, and not the cause. The reason is that CO2 has a lower solubility in warmer water than in colder water, so as water temperature increases, it releases CO2 in the atmosphere, as the amount of CO2 that it can hold drops as the temperature increases. Al also didn't seem to notice that the CO2 levels have been shown in the past to be very dynamic. Al completely forgot to mention, or perhaps he just doesn't know, that the sun's output has been shown to be VARIABLE!!! This is very distinctly shown back in the 17th century when sunspots all but disappeared from the surface of the sun, suggesting that the suns output had dropped. This corresponded very nicely with a cooling of the globe, along with it, such nice things as GLACIERS ADVANCING AND THREATENING TOWNS, AND LOWER AGRICULTURAL OUTPUT. I guess Al Gore forgot about all that. Al Gore mentioned that the ice shelves on Greenland could disappear. He also made note of that at the end of the last ice age that receding glaciers reduced that salinity of the North Atlantic, shutting down the North Atlantic Converyor, and bringing on 1000 years of glacial conditions. If we follow Al Gores own presentation, were the Greenland glaciers to melt suddenly, we could find ourselves in the middle of an Ice Age. We've got to prevent this!!! :) In summary, I think this is an extremely cleverly written, and for the general uneducated masses, a quite effective propaganda piece. As a comprehensive scientific piece, well, let's just say that it comes up a lot short. And the fact that it makes some rather large ommisions in the subject mater, I find it to be extremely misleading for the uneducated or the gullible.

    Hooey!

    Totally off base! Al Gore scares me, creating a cult like religious movement to save our environment. He neglects to mention our moon is slowly drifting away from earth creating less of a lunar pull which can have dramatic effects on our climate! Those who care to dig deeper can look at Mars as an example of the effects of a planet w/o a moon. Save your money and invest in solar power!

    WHAT NONSENSE

    Want a real inconvenient truth? Snow fall in Malibu California record setting cold throughout sections of the United States. Global warming is a HOAX and so is Al Gore. Climate change is CYCLICAL and real FACTS prove it.
