I have seen An Inconvenient Truth, and I greatly appreciate the message that Al Gore is promoting, but I could not help but feel a little bit odd about the film. Some of his presentations seemed forced, and to a certain extent he seemed void of any emotion. Not having seen much video of Al Gore before, I finished the movie having learned quite a bit, but still had an uneasy feeling about Al Gore's personality. Then a few weeks later my boss at work started holding viewings of video clips from a conference he had been attending on an annual basis. This conference was TED (Technology, entertainment, and design), an annual conference that brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and challenges them to give the talk of their lives.
Anyway, check out the site, it's incredible. Here's a talk by Al Gore that moved me because it seems more personal, candid, and heartfelt.
Maybe it was because he was in a room full of his peers and he could let down his guard, but I quite enjoyed this speech and, for me, it really changed the way I perceive his film, An Inconvenient Truth, for the better.
