Al Gore is back and this time he's out to get the climate change haters.
The debate surrounding climate change in the US looks set to intensify in 2017 with the release of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power, Al Gore’s follow up to the documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
First released back in 2006, the film earned praise for attempting to educate people about the dangers of global warming.
However, the movie courted plenty in the way of criticism from climate change deniers, who claimed that some of the film’s predictions were outlandish at best.
Now, with a follow-up set to be released through Paramount this year, Gore has sought to silence some of these doubters by addressing their criticisms over his predictions, 10 years on.
In a new clip from the upcoming movie, Gore examines his previous prediction concerning the 9/11 memorial site in New York.
Back in 2006, he warned in An Inconvenient Truth that this area was at risk of flooding because of global warming in a claim many doubters labelled ridiculous.
But, as the accompanying clip demonstrates, Gore has been proven correct, and something tells us a few more claims could be debunked before he’s finished.
Due for release at some point this year, the official synopsis for An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, reads as follows:
“A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes—in moments private and public, funny and poignant—as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.”
With President Donald Trump predicted to take a sceptical view of climate change while in the Oval Office, the new film could not come at a more important time.
We have some exciting news to share. Recently, The Climate Reality Project Founder and Chairman Al Gore attended the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, for the debut of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. The film earned a “rapturous response” at its opening-night premiere screening on January 19.
At the festival, Vice President Gore joined an esteemed panel of climate innovators to discuss the role of storytelling in the climate movement. Vice President Gore described how engagement and inspiration through storytelling can encourage climate action alongside Jeff Skoll, founder and chairman of The Skoll Foundation, scientist and broadcaster Dr. David Suzuki, and Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives.
