Check out MTV's Break the Addiction: An Inconvenient Truth movie special on Overdrive.

Ever dreamed of becoming an action hero? Ex-Vice President Al Gore is calling all viewers to real action in the scariest movie to hit theatres this summer - An Inconvenient Truth. In this action-packed documentary, the ex-vice president challenges you to stand up and actually do something to stop global warming. And he is serious.

The documentary, a Sundance Film Festival hit storming into theatres this week in New York and Los Angeles, details Gore's personal crusade to fight off the evils of global warming by exposing the myths and misconceptions that surround it. Gore poignantly addresses the looming consequences of global warming brought on by our everyday actions, and our general neglect for our earth. He sees us at the tipping point, a critical moment when the global community must confront a multitude of environmental issues. We have to do something to reverse the effects of global warming that threaten to jeopardize our ability to live on this planet.

An Inconvenient Truth demands Americans face facts-while we may only make up 4% of the world population, the U.S. consumes 25% of the world's energy. Al Gore exposes the truth about global warming, and hopes audiences will realize the magnitude of impending environmental devastation, and the urgency with which we must act.

Look no further than the disastrous Hurricane Katrina of 2005 to witness the ruinous forces of global warming. If we continue destroying our environment and exploiting our natural resources at the rate we are currently going, U.S. cities like New York and Miami will be flooded by rising sea levels in a matter of decades. While this is terrifyingly real, we can do something to reverse the effects of global warming. But we must act now.

It's time to take your first step to Break The Addiction. You don't have to wait around for politicians to pass new laws and amend policies to protect your planet. You can do something today! We urge you to join the 12-step program and examine your lifestyle to save our planet (and save some cash).

So come on, be a hero. Our very lives depend upon it.

  • And in case you need another reason to check out An Inconvenient Truth, 5% of the film's proceeds will be donated to the Alliance for Climate Protection.
