Former Vice president of the U.S.A Al Gore has produced the documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" which premiered in May 2006.

"Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style."

Paramount'd Classics has committed five percent of their domestic theatrical gross for the film with a minimum guarantee of $500,000 to be donated to a new bipartisan climate effort, Alliance for Climate Protection. Alliance for Climate Protection will campaign to motivate a critical mass of the public and influential constituencies to demand action to cut U.S emissions and to make solving global warming a national political imperative.
