The Inconvenient Truth
I recently saw the award winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, based on former Vice President Al Gore's crusade to stop global warming. I had heard and seen snippets about temperature rise, polar bears drowning, and increased storm intensity. For me the convincing argument for drastically altering carbon dioxide emissions was provided in the data tables, illustration of global ocean currents and related videos of events. The Nobel Peace Prize that Al Gore received for the film adds credence. If you have not seen it, I'd suggest taking the 1-1/2 hours to see the film.
If you are cost-conscious and do not have access through Netflix or other sources, it is available on the internet (with Vietnamese subtitles) at:

Some additional ways that we could reduce CO2 emissions include:
