The Al Gore global warming movie "An Inconvenient Truth" presented a scientific argument for the impact of climate change. Gore had taken on the challenge of breaking down difficult research topics into an easily understandable presentation, which he presented across the world.

Here are some of the reactions from scientists to the movie’s claims and Gore’s ability to convey them:

"Excellent. He got all the important material and got it right."
William Schlesinger, dean of the Nicholas School of Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke University

"I sat there and I'm amazed at how thorough and accurate," Corell said. "After the presentation I said, 'Al, I'm absolutely blown away. There's a lot of details you could get wrong.' ... I could find no error."
Robert Corell, chairman of the worldwide Arctic Climate Impact Assessment group of scientists, read the book and saw Gore give the slideshow presentation that is woven throughout the documentary.

"I thought the use of imagery from Hurricane Katrina was inappropriate and unnecessary in this regard, as there are plenty of disturbing impacts associated with global warming for which there is much greater scientific consensus."
Brian Soden, a University of Miami professor of meteorology and oceanography

“Such an amount of relatively hard science could have been extremely dull, and I’ve been to a lot of presentations on similar stuff that were very dull. Where there was solid science, he presented it solidly without going into nuts and bolts, and where there were issues that are still a matter of some debate, he was careful not to go down definitively on one side or the other.”
Dr. Gavin Schmidt, a climate modeler for NASA

“Mr. Gore’s characterization of recent dynamic events in Artic glaciers does rest firmly on observational evidence from a variety of sources, not just on glacier pair photos like those mentioned … It’s true that every glaciered region on Earth is experiencing retreat and thinning.”
Ted Scambos
, National Snow and Ice Data Center scientist

“I thought it is remarkably up to date, with reference to the very latest research. Discussion of Antartica and Greenland are expertly laid out.”
Eric Steig of RealClimate Climate Science
