Al Gore: 'There's Hope' for Climate Change Solutions in 'An Inconvenient Sequel'

A decade after Al Gore debuted his climate change documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” he’s hitting Sundance to talk about its follow-up, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.” Joined by directors Jon Shenk and Bonnie Cohen and executive producer Jeff Skoll at the Variety Studio presented by Orville Redenbacher, Gore said the new film isn’t all doom and gloom.

“The climate crisis can be a forbidding topic if you allow yourself to sink into despair,” he said. “A lot of damage is being done and a lot is at risk, but in the ten years or so since the first movie was made, the progress in developing solutions has been just extraordinary.”

Of the people who have seen “An Inconvenient Sequel” that he’s heard from, he added, “They appreciate getting an update on the science and the really kind of scary stuff that’s going on. But they even more appreciate the fact that they come away hopeful and energized.”
