Master class with Jane Edwards
An Inconvenient Truth

Senator Christine Milne presents Al Gore’s remarkable film about global warming; ‘An Inconvenient Truth’.

If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to*.’- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.

    a cautionary note

    the maker of this film was anointed by those with real power to run for president of usa.

    the solution he proposes is to let those same corperations who created the mess sort it out (oh and make money doing it) call me stupid but i suspect if he is correct about the degree of the problem the solution will be well beyond our control
