Former US Vice President Al Gore presented Wednesday in Washington his documentary on global warming, "An inconvenient truth", to an audience which included members of Congress and Queen Noor of Jordan.
"This film helps to convey a message to as many people in a short time," said Al Gore when he presented his documentary at the National Geographic Society.
The Al Gore film purports to show that global warming is imminent and could have catastrophic consequences.
Harry Reid, leader of the Democratic minority in the Senate, has the opportunity to ensure that the administration had made many mistakes, but "nothing is comparable to his ignorance of the death of our planet."
Queen Noor of Jordan, widow of King Hussein, born in the United States, told Associated Press that this film was important because it was "objective, non-partisan".
The first took place after the screening of the film in Los Angeles, where a green carpet instead of the traditional red carpet was unrolled to accommodate an audience of artists, including actors Sharon Stone and David Duchovny, or snowboarding Olympic champion Shaun White.
