an inconvenient truthWhen former Vice President Al Gore and Participant Media released An Inconvenient Truth in 2006, the effect was immediate and profound: people everywhere began talking about the climate crisis – to their friends, their family, and everyone in their lives – sparking a new kind of movement with millions demanding action all across the planet. – Climate Reality Project

Where were you when An Inconvenient Truth was released? I remember receiving the DVD in its slim paper cover at a time when clunky DVD jewel boxes packed in an oversized cardboard box and wrapped in cellophane was still the traditional packaging. Things have changed.

And remember, movies – and all media – can be a catalyst for change. Sometimes you  just have to tell the (inconvenient) truth.
