Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth alerted the world to the dangers of global foaming:
ABC News reports one of the most famous shots in the movie — of Antarctic ice shelves — is a fake. The film’s visual effects supervisor says the film took the shot from the fictional movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” which created it from Styrofoam and scanned it into a computer.
“Yeah, that’s our shot,” she says. “That’s a fully computer-generated shot. There’s nothing real in there.”
ABC wanted to ask Gore whether it was wrong for a documentary to use a fabricated shot to make a point, but says he did not return their calls.
He was probably out trying to rescue endangered plastic turkeys.
FAKENESS UPDATE, via Mike M. in Montreal:
Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a primary target of the Kyoto accord, was a central theme in An Inconvenient Truth, produced by former U.S. president Al Gore.
