An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
Al Gore’s first film shocked the world, his second film updates the facts.
A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution.
This second film is a fantastic educational tool, for governments, schools, universities and other similar institutions. It presents the facts and a solution without an political bias, which surprised me given Gore’s former political standing. The graphics and images are powerful, Al Gore is a fantastic speaker and while a lot of this content is available elsewhere the editing ensures the message packs a punch.
Overall a powerful film with an important message, I just doubt it’ll reach those who most need to see it.
