I finally saw the Al Gore film, An Inconvenient Truth. Thanks to Alexander Carpenter I was able to see the movie for free. You can do the same by visiting the website, Inconvenient Christians. I hope you will see the movie!
It is terrifying and compelling and accurate. After seeing the film I wanted to drive my car off a cliff (jumping out at the last moment to save myself, of course). In a more rational moment it made me more committed than ever to pursuing community on a "human scale." Especially in Southern California, life is not lived on a human scale; rather, it's a automobile scale. You can't walk places. Most places can't even be reached by light rail or other public transportation (very easily). Even Christians rarely stop to ponder the gospel implications of commuting.
The scientific community has found a couple of fine points to argue with (like making too direct a link between climate change and Hurricane Katrina) but in general they have lauded the movie as an accurate portrayal of the science. However, our Commander in Chief has his head deeply imbedded in the sand. In a moment of sheer arrogance and stupidity, George Bush vowed NOT to see the movie, according to this Fox News report. I hope he will change his mind. There are issues that are more pressing than whether or not someone is allowed to burn a flag.
