i saw the talked about al gore movie "inconvienient truth "yesterday^^^it was a good movie long overdue about a subject that david suzuki has been talking about for 40 years^^^there was a bit of politicking in the picture prior to the us election this fall but otherwise it was well done^^^i will throw in one caveat its too bad that while he was vice president there was more gas guzzling s.u.v.s made and sold in the usa than any time in history^^^still in spite of that i highly recommend the movie if anyone reads this or cares
