The beginning

describes the sparkling waters, the grass where the tree shadows stagger, and a deep voice brings Al Gore's speech, a man who ran for president with Bush ```

My personal love for the film. The attitude is the same as that of people, it belongs to the slow heat type `` thisI got the CD as early as when it won the award, but I'm just ashamed to see it now, hehe.

I was a little surprised that it turned out to be a documentary, but Gore's speech was not obscure and very good, which also attracted me to continue watching.

He said: Humans once thought that the earth could not be round, and once thought that the plates of the continents would not move, just as they now believe that the earth's environment is controllable by human beings - "It is not ignorance that gets us into trouble" "but the appearance of Correct fallacy" (Mark Twain)".

I suddenly remembered that several times when I finished my schoolwork, I was asked to do the theme of environmental protection. At that time, I didn't quite understand the local enthusiasm for this topic; I also remembered a time when I went shopping To a Frenchman standing on the street holding a sign of environment friend, patiently waiting for someone who intends to support their environmental protection organization.

No political conspiracy, movies that pull support, no panic or extremism. But the natural disasters in the world, just like God punishes human beings, appear suddenly all over the world. Not to mention the distance, only the rare snow disaster in the 2008 New Year. There is little snowfall in the north, but heavy snow blocks the road in the south. I will not be in the country for the new year. , but I also learned from the news, the Internet and the mouths of friends, how cold the south is this year, and how many people can't go home.

Yes, some experts say that it is because of the rare cold air, what can explain that, and I think What I got here is indeed the performance of Global warming; at the same time, in the past ten years, I have really felt the change of climate. When I went to Beijing in the second day of junior high school, it was already snowing in December; and when I went to Beijing in the third year of high school, until The first snow fell in January.

"It's not a political issue, it's a moral issue" The present and future of the planet should be the concern of all mankind, I despise the skeptics of the US State Department in the film.

The last picture , that Earth, 4 billion miles apart, is a tiny dot that is barely visible to the naked eye - he said "Everything that has happened in human history has happened on that little dot, successes, disasters, and War, famine, civilization, that is our only home, and she is in danger now."

I am deeply shocked by this "smallness" and this "only".

Seriously, I admire this kind of film. If you want to be a filmmaker or designer in the future, you should also be a creator who pays attention to the current state of the world. In addition to enjoying the joy of creation, media people should also use their talents to impress the public.

    It looks heart-wrenching. Politics aside, as an environmental documentary everyone should watch. This is a moral issue. I have to say that the speeches of American politicians are super powerful, very provocative and infectious. In addition, this film is also very suitable for practicing English listening. twenty four

    Gore's personal excesses make this very good environmental film hateful, but I still recommend it in terms of environmental protection

An Inconvenient Truth quotes

  • Al Gore: We have the ability to do this. Each one of us is a cause of global warming, but each of us can make choices to change that. With the things we buy, the electricity we use, the cars we drive, we can make choices to bring our individual carbon emissions to zero. The solutions are in our hands. We just have to have the determination to make them happen. Are we gonna be left behind as the rest of the world moves forward?

    [on the screen behind him, a list of countries appears]

    Al Gore: All of these nations have ratified Kyoto. There are only two advanced nations in the world that have not ratified Kyoto, and we are one of them. The other is Australia.

    [on the screen, a map of the United States is shown]

    Al Gore: Luckily, several states are taking the initiative. The nine northeastern states have banded together on reducing CO2. Uh, California and Oregon are taking the initiative. Pennsylvania is exercising leadership on solar power and wind power. And U.S. cities are stepping up to the plate.

    [on the screen, a list of cities appears, to applause]

    Al Gore: One after the other, we have seen all of these cities pledge to take on global warming.

  • Al Gore: Ultimately, this question comes down to this. Are we, as Americans, capable of doing great things even though they are difficult? Are we capable of rising above ourselves and above history? Well, the record indicates that we do have that capacity. We formed a nation, we fought a revolution, and brought something new to this earth, a free nation guaranteeing individual liberty. America made a moral decision that slavery was wrong, and that we could not be half free and half slave. We, as Americans, decided that of course women should have the right to vote. We defeated totalitarianism and won a war in the Pacific and the Atlantic simultaneously. We desegregated our schools. And we cured fearsome diseases like polio. We landed on the moon! The very example of what's possible when we are at our best. We worked together in a completely bipartisan way to bring down communism. We have even solved a global environmental crisis before, the hole in the stratospheric ozone layer. This was said to be an impossible problem to solve, because it's a global environmental challenge requiring cooperation from every nation in the world. But we took it on. And the United States took the lead in phasing out the chemicals that caused that problem. So now we have to use our political processes in our democracy, and then decide to act together to solve those problems. But we have to have a different perspective on this one. It's different from any problem we have ever faced before.
