So I watched “An Inconvenient Truth” last night. Un-BULL-lieve-able!!!!! Have you seen it?!
1 – He says “it’s a moral issue” after showing tons of these Power Point graphs like we’re morons. (Frankly, the cartoons & homemade video of a polar bear trying to get on a breaking little ice cube insulted my intelligence.) I find it so ironic that these people who’ve shouted from the rooftops for years about science being so much above faith are now trying to bring faith & morals back into the picture by using “science“. This movie is shamelessly religious. From the anti-religious!! It even ended with an alter call, complete with piano background while he made a plea for all to join the cause.
2 – I don’t believe HIM. How can I? Here he is, trying to tell me he cares so much about this planet & is desperately trying to wave the warning flag for his children’s sake, while he jets around in private airplanes (although for the movie he is shown being frisked & sitting in a commercial plane – what a farce!!!), lives in a HUGE mansion, & leaves his own gigantic carbon footprint. Oh, yeah, I forgot. He’s buying those carbon offsets – FROM HIMSELF!!!!!!! This movie is one giant ad for his own company & it makes me angry! He is weasling around pulling out the “moral’ card, throwing around a slide show full of homemade graphs & cartoons, & expecting people to soak it all up like a brainless sponge! And incredibly, many are! As Ravi Zacharias says, “Let My people think”!!!!!!!
3 – Weather changes. That’s a fact. We’ve had ice ages, plate tectonic shifts (theoretically), a flood, etc. And guess what? The earth does end up in a ball of fire – the Bible tells us that in Revelation. So we already know the ending. He sure has made an awful lot of assumptions & “if”s to get where he tells us we’re going due to our cars & light bulbs.
Conclusion – Does Al really expect me to believe we “bad Americans” are causing all the weather change?! Has he seen the power in our sun lately? Or how much carbon a volcano spews out in short order? Does he really think he’s that powerful? (Don’t answer that.) Has he ever been to Asia?!!!! There’s so much pollution there you can’t see across the river often! And I’ve only been to two countries over there! Even I can see they’re belching out a WHOLE lot more stuff in the atmosphere than we are. So no, I don’t believe his little graph about America being the big, bad problem. And no, I don’t believe he’s on the up & up. I believe we need to take care of this world God made & worship Him alone, not live in fear or throw money at some guy because he made a Power Point presentation & needs a “legacy”. So there you have it.
PS – If you’re interested in hearing more about the other side of the story, I just found another documentary that is worth watching. It came out of Great Britain in 2007 & has nine parts to it. A must see!
