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),
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

* = 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:
- 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
- If you currently drive to some place you exercise, find a way to
either walk there or take mass transit.
- Take shorter showers. Heating water takes a lot of energy.
Others that don't apply to me specifically, but are not mentioned
- 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
