The Film With wit, smarts and hope, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH brought home Gore's persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue - rather, it is the biggest moral challenges facing our global civilization. Paramount Classics and Participant Productions presented a film directed by Davis Guggenheim. Featuring Al Gore, the film is produced by Laurie David, Lawrence Bender and Scott Z. Burns. Jeff Skoll and Davis Guggenheim are the executive producers and the co-producer is Leslie Chilcott.

7 Why A Film ?   • The rationale for turning Mr. Gore’s slide show into a  movie was simple:  as a film it could reach millions of  people whereas a slide presentation it would always be  limited to the VP’s schedule.   • The exponential increase in reach was really what  persuaded Al to allow us to film his lecture—and it is  important to remember that Guggenheim, Burns, David  et al pursued him and not the other way around.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
