        An Inconsistent Truth is one man's odyssey to find the truth about man-made global warming. As the title suggests, this is an answer to Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary but it's much more than a simple rebuttal.

The viewpoint of this film might not be the most popular position on the subject but it offers refreshing...

Circumstances certainly beyond their control, however, bring these seekers the ultimate satisfaction they didn’t even know they were missing.
