When An Inconvenient Truth came out, there was plenty of reason to be worried about where the climate was heading. Part of Al Gore‘s deeply concerning presentation about where the Earth was going to be in the next few decades included an apocalyptic end game, one that seemed impossible but, in Gore’s direct and informed way of speaking, also felt plausible in a strange way.
Of course now, with a climate change denier heading up President-Elect Trump’s EPA and a former Exxon honcho looking at the Secretary of State position, Gore’s nightmare seems infinitely more likely and maybe even a little kind. So, as was learned over this past weekend, it’s a perfect time for An Inconvenient Truth 2 to be hitting theaters, even after the similarly provocative, Leonardo DiCaprio-fronted Before the Flood. The surprise sequel was announced to be likely hitting theaters sometime in 2017 and the movie will have its first public screenings at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
