LOS ANGELES (AP) — Al Gore’s climate change documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” is getting a sequel.

Paramount Pictures said Friday the follow-up to the Oscar-winning original will premiere at next January’s Sundance Film Festival.

In the new documentary, former Vice President Gore examines global warming’s escalation and the solutions at hand, Paramount said.

In a statement, Gore called for a re-dedication to solving what he called the climate crisis and said there are reasons to be hopeful.

He met this week with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss the topic and termed the meeting productive. Several days later, Trump picked Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, a climate-change denier, as head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Sundance festival said it will feature other films and events about environmental change and conservation.

    So climate change is due to the people’s impact on earth explain to me how my SUV getting 25 mpg is impacting this earth when I have 747 Jets flying above me dumping 3600 gallons of fuel a minute who’s really putting more of an impact on earth not to mention history has proven that over the years fine and has always changed both hotter and colder throughout the years

    You can bet that Al & his entourage will all be on tandem bikes during the promotional tour………Except when they need to cover a great distance, I imagine they will elect to fly. Also, when they need to stay warm & dry, (and travel in relative comfort) I suspect they will pile into their SUV’s, en route to telling regular (tax paying) Americans why our way of life is selfish.
