It's the evil hurricane factory. And only you can slow it down.

An Inconvenient Truth is a documentary presented by former U.S. vice president Al Gore and directed by Davis Guggenheim that deals with the threat of global climate change. The title stems from a quote stating that people will not believe something, even if it is true, if their livelihoods depend on them not believing it — used here in reference to the energy industry and other polluters. A companion book was created titled An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It.

An Inconvenient Truth is the ninth-highest grossing documentary film to date in the United States.
