Former presidential candidate and environmentalist Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” predicted doom for our world back in 2006. If we humans didn’t stop polluting, global warming would threaten our environment. He teased a follow up to the film back in April and on Tuesday Gore released the trailer for “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.”
The sequel largely seems to star President Trump. In the trailer, Gore is seen praising global environmental regulations like those adopted at the Paris Climate Accords, but the scene turns dark when his words are contrasted with Trump’s campaign pledges to upend the Paris deal and abolish the Environmental Protection Agency.
“The Five’s” Greg Gutfeld offered an insightful film review on Wednesday, suggesting that “Truth to Power” was lacking on the truth part.
“You know who proved Al Gore wrong?” Gutfeld asked. “Al Gore.”
As Gutfeld explained, “An Inconvenient Truth” gave a doomsday timeline, predicting in 2006 that Earth would be destroyed in 10 years. Eleven years later, Gore released the sequel.
In the documentary, however, Gore insists that other predictions in the original were spot-on. For instance, critics accused him of exaggerating that the 9/11 Memorial site in New York City would one day be flooded. When Hurricane Sandy arrived, that prediction came true, he said, showing footage of the waters reaching the memorial.
The activist urged his fellow Americans to take care of their surroundings.
“Don’t let anybody tell you we’re going to get on rocket ships and live on Mars,” Gore says in the trailer. “This is our home.”
Interestingly, Gore’s documentary sequel was released just hours after President Trump signed an executive order to dismantle his successor’s climate change agenda.
