An Inconvenient Truth 2 is on the way

Al Gore’s climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth is getting a sequel.

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

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.
