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.

Doors open at 6pm; Delicious snacks provided; Community conversation; Donations always appreciated.

Speaker to be determined.

    I’ve heard it’s a powerful movie with amazing images. Looking forward to seeing the Sequel and talking with folks about it – and what we can do to help.

      I just watched the film for a second time. It’s very moving. Here are some of my favorite quotes related to the film:

      “To solve the climate crisis, we must first solve the democracy crisis.” Al Gore

      “Future generations will say, What were you thinking? Could you not hear what scientists were saying? Could you not hear what nature was screaming at you?” Al Gore

      “There’s no silver bullet, just silver buckshot.” Al Gore

      “After the final no there comes a yes, And on that yes the future world depends.” Wallace Stevens

      “The worst effects of the climate crisis afflict the poorest in the world.” Pope Francis

      “How long, not long, because no lie can live forever. How long, not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

      “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” Upton Sinclair

      “We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.” Albert Einstein
