An Convenient Lie in An Inconvenient Truth

Al Gore's 2006 film on global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth," won Gore an Academy Award and a Nobel Prize.  The Oscar came in the Best Documentary category but it turns out that the film should have been nominated for special effects (though the effects used were actually stolen from another movie).

In his "documentary," Gore shows footage of the Antarctic ice shelves collapsing into the sea.  But the footage is actually the computer-generated opening sequence from the 2004 science fiction film "The Day After Tomorrow."  You can view a comparison of the two films at

Don't believe everything that you see on film - even one called a documentary - especially if that film is produced or directed by a liberal.
