Goofs

In one of his presentations, Al Gore says that "Pope Francis came to Tacloban ... and delivered a very powerful message that the gravest effects of *the Climate Crisis* are visited upon the poorest people." According to Gore's own projected slide, visible in the background, the Holy Father's words actually were "... the gravest effects of *all the attacks on the environment* are suffered by the poorest." In contrast to Al Gore's, the Pope's phrasing includes all the attacks on the environment brought on by the technologies AL Gore is pushing for, and the downsides of which he seems to be blind to.

Quotes

Al Gore: Ten years ago, when the movie An Inconvenient Truth came out, the single most criticised scene in that movie was an animated scene showing that the combination of sea level rise and storm surge would put the ocean water into the 9/11 memorial site, which was then under construction.

Honestly more of an 8/10, but there's a one-star attack on this movie
13 August 2017 | by momchilmmSee all my reviews

As of this writing, more than 40% of the ratings are one-star. I do not know what the explanation is (although we could easily have some guesses) but I do not believe this is fair. This is why I'm writing my first IMDb review ever.

I do believe it is important for people to see this movie, and some of the scenes and the information had me gaping. It is definitely not boring. Maybe the only problem is that it is a bit too Gore-centric. From my point of view this was fine, as he is a compelling and moving speaker. However, I know that there are people who would not take a single word from him as truth, and so the message will never get through... But then again nobody knows how to get the message through with those people.
