About the Film
More timely than ever, this rousing follow-up to the Oscar®-winning An Inconvenient Truth—which more than a decade ago brought climate change into the popular consciousness—charts former vice president Al Gore’s ongoing mission to solve our climate crisis before it’s too late. The years since the original film have seen Gore’s predictions sadly come to pass, as evidenced by a sobering tour of areas around the globe already impacted by rising sea levels and record-breaking temperatures. But all is not dire in Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s inspirational film, which also details how close we are to an alternate energy revolution, Gore’s training of an army of climate leaders to spread his message, and his pivotal role in influencing global climate policy.
