The 'Inconvenient Truth' For Free

The Pensacola chapter of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is giving away 105 free tickets to the movie "An Inconvenient Truth," now showing at Gulf Breeze Cinema 4. It's "first come, first serve."

According to the Pensacola News Journal:
"105 is symbolic of what the local average summer temperature could be unless significant action is taken, according to the group."
Can you guess how many tickets they'd have to give away based on the projected heat index? Try in-putting here 105 degrees and the average Pensacola summer humidity of 86%. Looks like there's a lot of room for local groups to use the movie as a membership event.

Michael O'Donovan is a spokesman and board member for the Southern Alliance. (He's also the author of popular Pensacola photography books, including Florida's Northwest: First Places, Wild Places, Favorite Places and The Island.) He told the PNJ:
" 'An Inconvenient Truth' is one of the most important movies to come to Pensacola in some time. The documentary does a great job of showing how human activity is changing our climate more rapidly than at any other time in human history."
The movie has been receiving rave reviews, even from one-time doubters about climate crisis.

It will be showing through August at The Gulf Breeze Cinema 4. Show times are 2:00, 4:30 and 7:00 pm.

The movie was an eye opener for me. I have a better understanding on what global warming is and the effects it has had on us and if we do not make changes what will happen in our future.

The movie "An Inconvenient Truth" talks about melting polar ice.

Well the amount of ice at the poles right now according to daily radar measurements is displayed at www.globalboiling.com about 2/3rd's of the way down the page.
