An Inconvenient Truth: Closing Credits

(last updated .03-12-2013)

      This page lists the Closing Credits environmental suggestions text at the end of Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth, which appear spaced between the usual director, cinematographer, etc. credits. As of 10-17-2008, I could find no page on the Web devoted solely to this very important list. There is a copy of the list as part of a film review by Lynnette (last name unknown),
    http://thefuntimesguide.com/2006/11/al_gore_inconvenient_truth.php
The other two copies I found in 2008 have been deleted as of 2013.

      As someone said, "Everyone who breathes MUST see this movie". If you don't like Al Gore, pretend the facts are being presented by your best friend. Don't shoot the messenger. It is the message that is critically important, not the messenger. Just as the atmosphere is virtually CFC free, it must also become CO2 exhaust free!

    CFC = Cloroflurocarbon propellant was eliminated from all spray cans in order to repair the hole in the ozone layer.
    CO2 = Carbon Dioxide emissions must be eliminated from all motorized vehicles, cars, trucks, mopeds, ATV's, lawnmowers, tractors, and everything else that burns any type of fossil fuel. This will stop Global Warming.

      * = The suggestions above, which are not numbered in the film, are copied exactly as they appear, with sentences ended by a colon or no period, sentences started with no capital letter, etc.

          My own personal suggestions I try to follow:
  1. Ask yourself, is this particular car trip absolutely critical that is MUST be done right now, or can it wait to be done along with a number of other errands at the same time to save gas and earth destroying CO2 pollution.
  2. If you currently drive to some place you exercise, find a way to either walk there or take mass transit.
  3. Take shorter showers. Heating water takes a lot of energy.
          Others that don't apply to me specifically, but are not mentioned above:
  4. If you don't live anywhere near a Bus route, use Park & Ride lots wherever they are available. For example, there is one in the old K-Mart / Sears parking lot on the Highway 41 east frontage (Koeller) road near Highway 21 in Oshkosh. Park there and ride the City Bus to all of your in-town errands.
