An Inconvenient Truth is a documentary film about climate change, especially global warming, directed by Davis Guggenheim and starring former United States Vice President Al Gore. The documentary, based largely on a multimedia presentation that Gore prepared as part of an educational campaign on global warming, premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival (see 2006 in film).

The film opened in New York and Los Angeles on May 24, 2006. It is the third-highest-grossing documentary in the United States to date.[10] Both Gore and Paramount Classics, the film's distributor, have pledged proceeds from the film to further educational campaigns about climate change.[11] The film is due to be released on DVD by Paramount Home Entertainment on November 21, 2006.

An Inconvenient Truth is also the title of a companion book by Gore, which reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller lists of July 2[1] and August 13, 2006, and again during several months on the list.[2]
