Synopsis of An Inconvenient Sequel from Paramount Pictures
A decade after AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. 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.
"It is increasingly clear that business not only has to contribute to put the planet on a sustainable path, it has to lead. And every manager knows that any change initiative has to start with a clear eyed examination of the facts. That's why we are so delighted to have the Connecticut premier of 'An Inconvenient Sequel' at Yale School of Management." — David Bach, Senior Associate Dean, Yale School of Management
