Your Call: The global impacts of climate change & the consequences of inaction

Inconvenient_Sequel.jpg

  

In 2006, Al Gore’s award winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth started a national conversation about climate change. What’s been accomplished since then?

 

Seen around the world by millions of people it put Al Gore in the center of the movement for climate justice and won him a Nobel Prize.

Eleven years later, he’s out with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. The sequel revisits the ongoing impacts of climate change, Donald Trump’s departure from the historic Paris agreement, and the growing renewables revolution.
 

Filmmakers Bonnie Cohen and John Shenk join us to discuss the film and their efforts to turn this into a movement for climate justice.

 

Guests:

 

Bonni Cohen, co-director of An Inconvenient Sequel

 

John Shenk, co-director & cinematographer of An Inconvenient Sequel
