TCP: For the Love of Nature

Dear Reader,

I almost drew a blank on this one. I've been thinking about it the whole week. The first thing that came to my mind in all honesty was Poison Ivy of Batman and Robin. She wants Mother Nature to fight back so she crossbred some plants that could defend themselves. I really think it's a pretty lame entry, so here I am racking my brain some more.

My pick for the love of nature movie would be one that is a documentary. Most of you have probably heard of it: It's a documentary made by Al Gore discussing one of the most prominent issues that we are facing in the world today. Global Warming. It truly is affecting everything and it's a movie that one should really see, that will jolt us to our very cores. Seriously. I pity the polar bear who has to swim a long time just to get to that block of ice where it can rest. It's just heartbreaking. Comparisons of how snow, how much ice, that has been depleting. Areas that was once filled with snow have become deserts. It's really scary and will give you a rude awakening.

From director Davis Guggenheim, An Inconvenient Truth is a passionate and inspirational look at former Vice President Al Gore's fervent crusade to halt global warming's deadly progress by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. In this intimate portrait of Gore and his "travelling global warming show," Gore comes across as never before in the media - funny, engaging, open and intent on alerting citizens to this "planetary emergency" before it's too late.

Interspersed with the bracing facts and future predictions is the story of Gore's personal journey: from an idealistic college student who first saw a massive environmental crisis looming; to a young Senator facing a harrowing family tragedy that altered his perspective; to the man who almost became President but instead returned to the most important cause of his life. With an emphasis on hope, An Inconvenient Truth ultimately shows us that global warming is no longer a political issue but rather, the biggest moral challenge facing our civilization today.

After having its U.S. debut at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and international premiere at Cannes, An Inconvenient Truth opened to rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences everywhere. A smash hit, the film went on to win Academy Awards® for Best Documentary feature and Best Song. It also became a global phenomenon, one of the highest grossing documentaries of all time with a worldwide audience estimated at 5 million people.
