I will pay for the following article Gores Argument in an Inconvenient Truth. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Undoubtedly, this documentary is a perfect illustration of how scientific information can converse to an uninformed audience. This was one way Gore used to educate citizens on global warming and encourage them to take necessary action. But this documentary has created a heated debate as to whether it precisely grants the scientific argument that human activities are the major cause of global warming. Various scholars and climate change experts have expressed their views on the scientific validity of the claims proposed by this documentary. This paper critically analyses An Inconvenient Truth by Gore focusing on criticisms advanced against this film.
Many claims proposed by Gore in his film have been criticized by many scientists. There are many criticisms that have been advanced against gore’s documentary of an inconvenient truth. First, Gore has been accused of attempting to use individual extreme events like Hurricane Katrina to provide evidence about the existence of global warming. Another critique of this film is that it mainly focuses on humans and their activities as the major cause of global warming, but it fails to address other natural causes of climate variability that also contribute to the occurrence of global warming. Gore and his supporters believe that human beings contribute to changes in the climate in various ways but mainly by engaging in certain activities (Jackson 475). The real inconvenient truth is that science is not aware of the extent to which the recent warming is natural or result from human activities. In addition, this film has been accused of entirely relying on observational evidence and minimal research. His critiques have claimed that Gore’s arguments on global warming were based on emotions (Jackson 475). Gore argues that the snowcap at the summit of Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro is shrinking as a result of global warming. On the contrary, scientists believe that the leading factor behind Mt. Kilimanjaro’s snow recession can never be established easily. .
