‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ gets more screenings after Paris Climate Agreement fallout

In the wake of President Trump’s devastating decision on the Paris Agreement, the makers of An Inconvenient Sequel are adding extra free screenings of the film around the country on June 6.

The documentary about climate change has been updated for its official July release to reflect recent developments regarding the Paris Agreement and what that means for the United States and the rest of the planet.

Currently, scheduled screenings include Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Voorhees, New Jersey, with updates being added to the site as they are scheduled.

Directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenkissued a statement following Trump’s decision:

“We were shocked and disappointed to hear President Trump’s announcement…In our new film,An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,we filmedbehind-the-scenes in Paris to show thehard work, finesse, and passion that went into making the agreement happen.We hope that the hard work of those who made the deal happen will not be in vain. The good news is that there is a great deal to be hopeful about. The technology exists to create enough clean energy for the world economy and to avoid total climate catastrophe. Now that President Trump is pledging to do less to keep America’s commitment tothe world, we must all step up to do more to ensure the health of our planet.”

Al Gore, who appears in both An Inconvenient Sequel and An Inconvenient Truth and has been a vocal advocate of climate change action for decades, called Trump’s decision “reckless and indefensible,” adding that it “undermines America’s standing in the world and threatens to damage humanitys ability to solve the climate crisis in time.”

Posted on his official website, Gore’s statement continued, “But make no mistake: if President Trump wont lead, the American people will.” Gore’s comments are already being backed up by a growing grassroots movement from individual American citizens and local and regional U.S. leaders who have pledged to uphold the tenets of the Agreement.

An Inconvenient Sequel will be released nationwide on July 28.
