Though I have read much about Al Gore's Oscar nominated documentary, I refrained from actually subjecting myself to his rantings. Until last night that is. Finally succumbing to Basil's promptings, some of us London Foggers decided to tune in. Basil promptly tuned out and fell asleep, while Mike, Mapmaster and myself ingested nearly an hour of an unbelievably BORING series of disconnected graphs and closeups of Al Gore. Essentially, the film is a prolonged, self-congratulatory political ad for Gore himself.
The main point of the movie is that, unless we do something very serious, very soon about carbon dioxide emissions, much of Greenland’s 630,000 cubic miles of ice is going to fall into the ocean, raising sea levels over twenty feet by the year 2100.
