A gift of hope enriched by the actions of proponents of the reduction of greenhouse gases, and emboldened by the support of so many who seek sanity in this world.

An Inconvenient Truth was a lot more informative, though I think the sequel does a good job of speaking to the seriousness of global warming.

A strong sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.

Al Gore is a breath of fresh air considering the smell coming from Washington D.C. these days. I recommend this to everyone.

I agree with previous comments: this is an important topic, perhaps the most important issue of our era...but the movie did not feel nearly as impactful as An Inconvenient Truth. Global climate change needs all our energy and focus, so another documentary is helpful to keep the issue at the forefront.

Any documentary on climate change is important, and I have seen many good ones. This was okay. I felt it focused more on Al Gore himself, than the climate issues at hand. However, the global warming threat is very real and this doc. keeps that threat at the forefront. A must rent!

If you believe in this you are silly, he had been at it for a decade, he made millions just by talking about it without any success in resolving the real issues. Why not show the world the real reality, why is it so polluted in major cities, it is because you keep destroying nature for your skyscrapers and not enough trees to filter the air. Have all the factories that polluted been shut down. We all know by now that the scientists said they liked to get government grants, and that it was the planet alignment that was causing temperature rise. Now that the planet shifted again we are seeing colder weather. On island it is usual for the house to be destroyed, and most of them built their houses on wet land causing their house to flood. The inconvenient truth is he use data to manipulate global warming to serve his purposes. Action speak louder than words.

Al Gore's follow-up presentation on global warming and climate change, list of natural disasters, renewable energy, the climactic Paris Agreement and looking past Donald Trump. Chilling footage on earth's shrinking glacier and how the more extreme weather has affected global citizens, particularly the poor. These data stuck to my mind:

***The way you know global warming is real is if the hottest year ever is the year you're currently in.

***Something happened last night at one of the most iconic locations in New York the World Trade Center, Ground Zero.

***Houston's been hit between May of last year and May of this year. Two 1-in-500-year floods and one 1-in-1,000-year downpour.

***Days into his presidency, Donald Trump is sending chills down the spines of environmentalists and some EPA employees.

***You know, Florida's called the Sunshine State? The head of the second-biggest fossil fuel utility there was actually quoted as saying,
"Yes, we're the Sunshine State," "but, remember, we're also the partly cloudy state."

If it's even possible this film outdoes the original!! I only wish that the good news would begin to outweigh the bad.

We need to keep working harder!

Hugs to everyone who joins in and sticks to it!

Ending comments, P1 of 2:
Martin Luther King famously answered a question during some of the bleakest hours of the Civil Rights Movement, when someone asked, "How long is this gonna take?" He said, "How long? Not long." "Because no lie can live forever." "How long? Not long." "Because the moral arc of the universe is long," "but it bends toward justice." "How long? Not long." We are close in this movement. We are very close to the tipping point beyond which this movement, like the abolition movement, like the women's suffrage movement, like the Civil Rights Movement, like the anti-apartheid movement, like the movement for gay rights, is resolved into a choice between right and wrong.

Ending comments, P2 of 2:
And because of who we are as human beings, the outcome is foreordained. And it is right to save the future for humanity! It is wrong to pollute this Earth and destroy the climate balance! It is right to give hope to the future generation! It will not be easy. And we, too, in this movement will encounter a series of no's. The great American poet Wallace Stevens, in the last century, one of his lines was this, "After the last no comes a yes." "And on that yes the future world depends."

Well, not exactly, because, um, you're in Georgetown, which is the reddest city in the reddest county in Texas, and I'm a conservative Republican... But our duty to our ratepayers is to provide them with the lowest possible
utility cost.
-And money talks.
But then, wouldn't it just make sense from a common-sense standpoint,
the less stuff you put in the air, the better it is?
- Yeah.
I mean, common sense. You don't need scientists to debate that.

Trump has said he will "cancel the Paris Climate Agreement" and also promised to promote coal power and fracking, and says he will allow for oil and gas drilling on federal land.

Fourteen years ago the best projections available were that we would be able to install worldwide one gigawatt of solar electricity per year. Well, when 2010 arrived, we beat that goal by 17 times over. Last year, we beat that goal 58 times over. This year, we're on track to beat that goal 73 times over.

Actually, the atmosphere of the Earth is a very thin shell surrounding the planet. And, of course, right now we are putting 110 million tons of heat-trapping global-warming pollution into that space every single day. We're using this as an open sewer for all of the gaseous waste in our global civilization.

Look at this downpour that hit Tucson, Arizona, and watch the water splash off the city. They're now calling these things "rain bombs." Houston's been hit between May of last year and May of this year. Two 1-in-500-year floods and one 1-in-1,000-year downpour. Now, that's unusual. Almost Noah-like. This was in Spain last fall. In Chile, last year. Epic event. And now, today, there are water rescues underway in southeast Louisiana.

Days into his presidency, Donald Trump is sending chills down the spines of environmentalists and some EPA employees. This trifecta of cabinet appointments, all staunch fossil fuel supporters who've expressed doubts about the urgency of climate change.

The way you know global warming is real is if the hottest year ever is the year you're currently in. Fourteen of the 15 hottest years ever measured have been since 2001. The hottest of all was 2016.

Something happened last night at one of the most iconic locations in New York the World Trade Center, Ground Zero. A flood of water with a current so strong it flooded the reconstruction.

You know, Florida's called the Sunshine State? The head of the second-biggest fossil fuel utility there was actually quoted as saying,
"Yes, we're the Sunshine State," "but, remember, we're also the partly cloudy state." And they have lobbied the state legislature to basically make it illegal to lease a solar panel for your rooftop from anybody but the fossil fuel-burning utility!
