An Inconvenient Truth

I haven't seen it, and probably won't until it's out on DVD, but let me start a discussion here by reprinting Stephanie McMillan's (from Minimum Security) take, which will be different than the simple glowing paeans you can read on a variety of liberal blogs:
Last night I saw Al Gore's new movie, "An Inconvenient Truth." I liked the exposure he did, the presentation of unarguable facts proving global warming is happening, and the photographs documenting its effects. He didn't stray from a liberal ruling class point of view though, and even made the point that a sufficiently energy-efficient economy can still be a growth economy (which I don't agree with). And he doesn't really look at the underlying economic forces that created this problem, or focus much blame on corporations. But I think it will serve as a horrifying wake-up call to many people, which is certainly necessary and positive.
