An Inconvenient Truth, released in 2006, was the first major Hollywood film about climate change and was undoubtedly a turning point in the American story of climate action. The movie, a double Academy Award winner, was viewed by millions of people who hadn’t given much thought to the topic and educated people about both the problems we face ahead with global warming, and also inspired many to begin pursuing solutions. Now more than 10 years later, the team that brought us the movie is releasing a sequel, called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, to be released nationwide next Friday, August 4.
An Inconvenient Sequel will in some ways pick up where the first movie left off, however, viewers will be able to see much of the landscape that has changed in the past decade, considering the advancements in the field of climate science, the many extreme weather events typical of a warmer globe, political shifts, and the economic and technological breakthroughs of global warming solutions such as solar and wind energy.
The movie is sure to be an excellent conversation starter with those new to the intricacies of this topic and diehard climate action advocates alike.
