An Inconvenient Truth 2

2017 – 98 minutes.

Our climate changes; the truth does not. Ten years after former US vice-president Al Gore released his shocking film An Inconvenient Truth, putting climate change on the agenda, this fascinating sequel shows us how close we are to a major energy revolution.

Al Gore is tireless in his continued fight, travelling around the world to train countless climate experts and bring his influence to bear on international climate policy.

Filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Schenk follow him behind the scenes, recording personal, funny and touching moments. Despite the rapidly rising temperature of the earth and the disastrous effects of climate change, Gore is optimistic: a lot of progress has been made in terms of improving sustainability. Like the historic Paris climate accord in 2015.

In this sequel, Gore returns to his urgent message that climate change may well be one of the biggest dangers of our time, but that it is not too late: the battle may yet be won with innovation and inspiration.
