‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ trailer delivers a powerful truth

An Inconvenient Sequel

“The next generation would be justified in looking back at us and asking what were you thinking?” Paramount has dropped a trailer for the follow-up to the 2006 environmental documentary, which releases in Australia on 24 August 2017.

Delivering a power missive to both Donald Trump and Elon Musk in equal measure, former Vice President Al Gore continues to rage against the machine with his speaking tour that is now more salient than ever. Cameras follow him behind the scenes – in moments both private and public, funny and poignant – as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

The visuals alone make this trailer worth watching, but with a US administration that threatens to deny climate science and defund the EPA, it’s incredibly clear who AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER is inconvenient for.
