    This seems like an interesting documentary. I will probably never see it. But interesting none the less.

    I saw this with another Mac enthusiast... we were Apple-spotting the whole time.

    "Al Gore has all this money but DOESN'T have a sleeve for his PB? Whaaat?"
    :)

    It was a REALLY GOOD looking presentation.

    Don't seem to mention Al Gore as an Apple director. Could this potentially be classed as abusing their position?

    Er, why? They're just posting an article someone wrote. Blame Barbara for not doing her research. ;)

    An excellent movie--shocking and scary, but with good science and interesting explanations--and ending, thankfully, on an upbeat note. The biographical parts were a little odd and off-topic I thought, but they were brief.

    I will say that I used to think there was some small chance that global warming wasn't real. I didn't realize before that no scientists are in doubt! And I no longer am either.

    history

    And Gore could have been president if not for vote-rigging; This will be looked back on as a crucial turning point in the history of the planet.

    Gore, an environmentalist and a mac user. Aghhhh!

    do we try to get him driving that polluting car? ;)

    i just have seen excerpts of the movie(?). i have been reading up on books and stuff and i believe the man really means it. he is scared. we all should.

    ironically the guy comes from the country that refuses to help save the earth.

    Great pic of Gore at his workstation - elbow on his Powerbook(!) as if it's an armrest, and a desk piled with crap.

    He should clean up his own environment first! :p

    Apathy and ignorance are the two greatest obstacle we face in the world. "Interesting" indeed.
