The problem I had with the movie is that it was too personal, and thus too much about him and his family.

Regarding the science in the film - it was no worse than most of the stuff that once sees on TV. Very simplified, not fully explained, and presented as “ta-dah, presto” rather than as a result of many decades of work.

It was Gore who helped, when he was in the Senate, to bring James Hansen’s testimony and similar stuff to prominence. In that Gore did good work.

I know many conservatives won’t forgive Gore for taking the 2000 election to court, but in the end he accepted the result. I don’t blame Gore for trying, for he had clearly won the majority of the vote nation wide and it was only our state system of electing presidents that got GWB into office.

I’m not going to discuss the 2000 election here. But that’s what the crux of the Gore hate is about, I wager.

The movie was to target people who knew nothing or little about global warming. It was to bring the topic to the public, not a presentation to the scientific community, yet it was packed with that information.

He showed his own personal history because he’s been at it for 30 years along with clean air, clean water, a host of other environmental concerns along with telecommunications and technology. It’s been his life’s work when most of us were either in diapers or grade school. So forgive me if I don’t accept your criticism.
