An Inconvenient Truth

"An Inconvenient Truth" is a 2006 documentary about climate change featuring Al Gore (see Al Gore quotes) that won two Oscars, one for Best Original Song, and the other for Best Documentary. 

I was interested in climate change since the end of elementary school and the beginning of high school, but watching this movie in grade 8 (Secondary Two) was probably the biggest event that really sparked my interest in climate change.

After this film, the IPCC and Al Gore were given the Nobel Prize for "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change" (Source).

Also, Al Gore would later start Climate Reality and trained thousands of Climate Leaders worldwide, including me, in 2013 in Chicago. I also attended a global online training in 2020.

I would definitely recommend this film, and I have displayed ten movie clips from the movie below:
