Al Gore claims that he predicted in An Inconvenient Truth that sea level rise combined with storm surge would flood the 9/11 memorial construction. He didn't. What he did say was that if all the ice melted off of Greenland, it would flood areas with high population, as well as the 9/11 memorial, making no mention of storm surges. As it was Hurricane Sandy that caused the memorial to flood, Gore now rewrites his original claim so that it matches up with the fact. See more »

I love Mr. Gore, but this documentary suffers from an anemic pace and its message gets stunted by how fast the news are moving in these days of Trump. Most of the film shows how Mr. Gore gathers data and debates people while preparing for the Paris accord of 2015-which at this point -after Trump signed off from it - seems like a distant memory, even if it is still law and the US remains part of it for a few years. Focusing on the politics of the message over the message itself-with so many natural disasters and footage from them in 2017 available- made the movie felt repetitive when it could have been more emotional and connect with the viewer better.
