It’s been 10 years since An Inconvenient Truth movie came out. For this special presentation of our Science on Screen series, we’ve invited two scientists (Dr. Janice Greene and Dr. Alexander Wait from MSU’s Biology Department) to discuss what has changed (and what has not) since this groundbreaking movie was released 10 years ago.

Film Synopsis: This documentary offers a passionate and inspirational look at Al Gore’s fervent crusade to halt global warming’s deadly progress in its tracks by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. (Participant Productions)

"A powerful film that educates as it engages."
- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A film that invests hard science with impassioned moral drive."
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"It grabs you like a thriller with an ending that will haunt your dreams."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Frightening and timely, the smartly organized documentary is an urgent plea for responsibility and action as well as an impassioned call to heed the ominous warnings of science."
- Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Communicates the dangers of ignoring global warning with credible urgency in a way news coverage of conferences and TV news segments have never been able to do."
- Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"The clarity and simplicity of the presentation is remarkable. Gore is a likable, confident, humorous speaker. And the material reminds us of the need for vigilance."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Brings a feeling of history: Virtually everyone who sees this movie will be galvanized to do something about global warming -- and everyone should see this movie."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film. If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
