An Inconvenient Truth on DVD
The DVD was made a year after they finished the movie. What’s new on the DVD is that Al Gore has a segment in which he talks about what has happened in the short period of time since they completed the documentary — further evidence has come out supporting his claims, and there has been a more general consensus on the reality of global warming.
The topics he talks about are Hurricanes, Global Temperatures, Ocean Acidification, Population, Glacial Earthquakes, Soil Moisture (evaporation), and Permafrost. He presents the full length of scenes that had to be shortened for the film, along with additional informational slides that he made after the movie came out and has been using since.
Also on the DVD are commentary tracks by the director and producers, as well as the music video of Melissa Etheridge’s Oscar-Winning song “I Need To Wake Up.” There’s also a “The Making of….,” which is short but I still found entertaining to watch.

Even if you saw the movie when it was released, the DVD is still waching because there’s some new information that Al Gore introduces with new slides. He also mentions in the additional segment that he was actually scheduled to give his slide presentation in New Orleans the day that Katrina hit, but… well… that’s synchronicity for you.
