For many on the right, giving Al Gore credit for anything is just out of the question. Not going to happen.

Still suffering from the tragic events that took place in 2000. You know, the one where, they won.

So, I haven’t seen the movie but my impression is that it was created to provide an outline of global warming for general audiences and reflects a lot of information current to the year of production. The main point was to inspire people and not to be taken as I stated a syllabus or perhaps a text book — although it is based on scientific facts. I think the film’s website says it better:

From director Davis Guggenheim, An Inconvenient Truth is a passionate and inspirational look at former Vice President Al Gore’s fervent crusade to halt global warming’s deadly progress by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. In this intimate portrait of Gore and his “travelling global warming show,” Gore comes across as never before in the media - funny, engaging, open and intent on alerting citizens to this “planetary emergency” before it’s too late.
