An Inconvenient Sequel

 

Rated PG · 100 minutes · 2017

Documentary
In the 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth, former U.S. vice president Al Gore sounded the alarm about man-made climate change; this sequel is even more urgent, detailing some of the environmental disasters that have come to pass during a decade of rising temperatures. Directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk follow Gore beyond the lecture circuit and into the field: to Greenland, where scientists show how glacier melt escalates; to Miami Beach, where costly elevated roads are needed to circumvent the rising sea level; and to India, where the vice president implores government ministers to abandon construction of coal-burning energy plants. Some might see the film as lionizing Gore, but it's a fascinating primer on how to engage and train citizen activists, from the grass roots to the corridors of power.
