We’ve long speculated that there would be, but now The Sun is quoting Al Gore as saying that a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth is going to happen. Who’s ready to start waiting in line right now? From the article
“The former US Vice President said: ‘I will make a sequel to the 2006 documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and despite earths ‘rising fever’, I am hopeful for a happy ending”. However, he admitted that the situation had instead got worse since his documentary hit cinemas in 2006. Gore said: ‘I have to say the situation has not improved since I made the movie in 2006. Sure, awareness has grown and more people are concerned since scientists said we had just ten years to take action to halt rising sea levels,’ was quoted as saying by The Sun.”
Gore’s first documentary was a critical and box-office success — with some crediting the film for seriously increasing the momentum of today’s environmental movement. The former VP’s fears, however, are justified as a recent Gallup poll showed only 1/3 of Americans are concerned about climate change — the same number as measured 19 years ago!
Will Gore’s next film on the topic draw people into the theaters for another dose of climate change education? Or should he stick to other methods for informing people? What do you think?
