"An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" Film Showing, 7 PM, US Bank Theater
The Climate Reality Project will host a film screening of An Inconvenient Sequel, the long awaited follow up to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. IT helped spark the international movement around the climate crisis and the need for climate mitigation. The national Climate Reality Project, which the Ohio State campus chapter falls under, was founded by the Former Vice President following the success of IT. The widely acclaimed sequel premiered January 2017 at Sundance film festival, as the headlining event of opening night, with release in theaters set for July of this year. An Inconvenient Sequel takes a step back from the fact heavy, scientific focus of Gore’s original slideshow. It focuses on some of the most immanent threats of global climate change, investigating natural disasters and marginalized communities. Gore himself calls the film “a burst of hope” spotlighting the current successes and future benefits of a renewable energy based economy.
