"An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power"--review





While there is a pre-sold audience of millions for this movie those who DON’T believe in global warming and/or climate change are the ones who should be seeing “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power”.


Ten years ago Al Gore won an Oscar for “An Inconvenient Truth” showing what was happening in the world and, without pointing fingers; many said it wasn’t true, it was just natural changes in nature and he didn’t know what he was talking about and yes, “What do the scientists know?”


Seeing this sequel people can see the actual changes but even more important what other countries are doing to make life for their citizens better while recently the POTUS announced that the United States was leaving the Paris agreement made at the 2015 Climate Change Conference. The governor in Florida won’t even meet with scientists while fish swim in the as floods overtake Miami and Fort Lauderdale.


Recently a study was presented by scientists to the POTUS reiterating what climate change studies have said, it does make the case that global warming is getting worse and that significant action must be taken. In the film the latter shows the hottest years on earth and they all have happened in the past decade.


Many examples of how storms are getting worse every year are shown with cities being wiped out while it is shown how the many years of drought played a part of the civil war that happened in Syria opening the way for ISIS.


In the United States there are 8 cities that are getting 100% of its energy from solar and wind with the mayor of Georgetown, Texas, saying “It is the reddest city in the reddest county” and gets 100% of its power from that energy.  Countries, like Norway, are talking about having an all electric car country by 2025.


Though it is pointed out that climate change will affect our lives in many ways from making the southern part of the USA becoming breeding grounds for the Zieka virus along with super storms, the main message the film imparts that much is being done to cause cheers and hope.


There is a 10-15 minute segment devoted to the DISCOVR space satellite was put on hold by politics and when it was finally launched in 2015 opened a whole new world of science.


The visit to the first movie when Gore spoke about the 9/11 Memorial would be flooded he was laughed at by the ‘know-it-alls’ and we now see how it happened in October, 2012, when hurricane Sandy hit.


“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” should be seen by all: believers and non-believers.
