Paramount to Release a Sequel to Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth"


Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Paramount has announced that a sequel to Al Gore’s 2006 climate documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” will be aired at the Sundance Festival in January 2017.

Paramount Pictures will distribute a still-untitled An Inconvenient Truth sequel

Paramount Pictures announced today it will release a still untitled An Inconvenient Truth sequel theatrically. From Participant Media, and directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, the An Inconvenient Truth sequel follows former Vice President Al Gore as he continues his decades-long fight to build a more sustainable future for our planet. The 2006 original won two Academy Awards.

“Now more than ever we must rededicate ourselves to solving the climate crisis,” says Gore. “But we have reason to be hopeful; the solutions to the crisis are at hand. I’m deeply honored and grateful that Paramount Pictures and Participant Media have once again taken on the task of bringing the critical story of the climate crisis to the world.”

I’m personally looking forward to the sequel. I mean, there are important questions unanswered by the first “Inconvenient Truth”, questions like “Why did you sell your TV station to Al Jazeera – what happened to the $100 million you took from the Qatar Oil Sheiks?“. Or “Why did you buy that Montecito beach view villa in 2010, if you thought sea level rise was about to engulf coastal towns?”. How about “How much electricity did you burn during Earth Hour 2009, when you left the lights on at your huge Tennessee mansion?“.

Those were just the most egregious ones, those the judge felt required immediately accompanying disclaimers. He noted 27 more less serious ones, as well.

I don’t recall the judge going beyond 9 errors. It was only a partial victory. The film was allowed to be shown with some prefatory “guidance” material. Other commenters soon found a total of 35 mistakes. I hope the new movie loses tons of money.

Well “inconvenient truth” does sound like the title of a comedy. I would go for some laughs if I wanted to make a profit on this groaner. Karl Marx was a better comedian than Gore, its just the Karl wasn’t kidding. Groucho on the other hand was:
While Groucho was having a lunch on the Via Veneto in Rome, a priest came up to his table and said, “My mother just loves you!”. To which Groucho replied, “Hey, I thought you guys weren’t allowed to have mothers.”
‘Groucho’ wouldn’t be a bad nickname for Gore – he’s a testy fellow.

Park City, UT is a ski resort, January snow is almost guaranteed! I was once stranded there by a March blizzard, me a co-driver, and four Arabians in a 20′ trailer along with everyone else lucky enough to make it to the exit without sliding into a ditch. It started out as a downpour in SLC but by the time we climbed up to Park City we could no longer see and were navigating by 18-wheeler’s running lights. We were just lucky he went off on an exit because we were willing to follow him until he stopped. Algore should only fall into a drift and turn blue….

About 8 years ago I was working on a local airborne survey crew and we booked into Sundance for Christmas dinner. Since it was snowing reasonably heavily, there was no chance of any work that day, so we headed off early to grab a few extra beers prior to the meal.
Just after we arrived, an minor avalanche blocked the access road, and therefore we had an almost surreal experience of a Christmas dinner in an otherwise empty restaurant. It was a good few hours before the road was cleared after the meal, so the whole evening got a bit messy, as we felt obliged to try to keep the bar staff employed. I felt a bit sorry for our designated driver.
What with all the global warming and missed climate targets, I guess these snowfalls are a thing of the past.

Or perhaps timed to coincide with a change in administration to keep the flock in line?

That is what I thought, exactly, when I first heard it was supposed to be released in January! Obviously this has been in production for some time, and it was time to coincide with the much anticipated (on the left) inauguration of President Hillary. This was going to be the cultural linchpin that was going to provide cover for a vast overhaul of the American economy in the guise of “climate security”.
Ha, how much one election can change! Now Paramount is stuck with this, the plans are set in stone, and they have nothing left to do but release it anyways.
To use a military analogy, this effort is going to go down as a Bay of Pigs for the Climate Warriors – a comically flawed assault that was far too little, far too late, to the point that it will be regarded as nothing but a punchline to a bad joke for all time to come.

You must be right. Lead time on these things is significant, even a dicumentary like An Incontinent Goof II A possibility that the screening will be deferred due to “scheduling conflicts” or “a cash crisis.” I suspect Paramount won’t be betting their farm on this turkey.

Can I do the film editing ? We’ll show icebergs, and forest fires, floods, Syrian refugees, floods, droughts, wind storms, snow storms, extreme cold, extreme heat, crop failures,… (no abundant crops), the evil air conditioners, … more evil than ISIS …. and what story would be complete without the story of poor starving polar bears and poor starving children. This is what is happening now. Not leaving out the charts, and official organizations, and the chronic Cryer of doomsday or the number of people who believe . And a voice over of how man is making all this happen oh,oh we will have to do something now ! The true meaning of think globally, act locally… and send donations to… there will be no accounting, just rest that your money is being used… … they could hire me to do the storyboards.

Perhaps Gore can reserve a couple of seats to the screening of his new film for Trump and Pruitt. The as-yet-unnamed documentary, directed by Bonnie Cohen and Jon Shenk (“Audrie & Daisy”), will premiere on opening night of the festival, which will have an environmental focus throughout its 11-day run (Jan. 19-29).

People are zoned out on climate alarmism. Movie will flop. Only Hollywood Communists will say how wonderful it is and that is justifies suspending civil rights to save the universe. Like how media wants to suspend the first amendment, calling all oppositional discussion fake news. I thought for a long time that the argument that the debate was over, was a climate statement. I now realize that Fascists and Communists don’t debate anything. If you disagree, you are a Deplorable. Basically, stupid and not worth listening to.

Erring on the side of the skeptics would mean any change in climate would be met with sound science and appropriate mitigations, if needed. Erring on the side of warming means everyone gets kicked back to pre-1880, unless you’re for more nuclear power plants. More nuclear plants are generally considered fine with the skeptics, so you’re on the same page with them if you’re for nuclear.

It’s somewhat amusing to follow the sentence “The climate science is settled”, with “It is now just a matter of how much [w]arming how soon.” Isn’t that precisely one of the main points that climate science has been *trying* to settle for several decades, without even narrowing the range of sensitivity? What’s your definition of settled science, “we all agree something will happen?”

A similar effort by the left on the topic of gun control was launched this weekend – “Miss Sloane” is a gun controller’s fantasy film about how everyone who supports the NRA is an evil, moral degenerate, while anyone who opposes them in Washington is Noble and Good, and most of all justified in committing any crimes in support of the Noble Goal. (seriously, that is the basic plot of the entire movie)
What a surpise! It’s already looking like a total flop – it’s been called the “female ghostbusters of the gun control movement”.
But really, who would have thought that, when looking for holiday entertainment, people would choose not to go listen to a 2 hour lecture on the wonders of gun control???

December 10, 2016 7:42 pm

With their penchant for bending, manipulating, and spindling the truth, the Left really goofed when they thought they could hang their cause on an issue that is based on hard data and science.

So, the chaos of weather is cumulatively known as the order of climate?
Only with proper homogenization.

IPCC said…
“…The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future exact climate states is not possible…”
Some warmistas have spent well over a decade trying to argue that although the climate is chaotic, long-term predictions can actually be made. And now you’re going to claim they were wasting their time because it is not chaotic in the first place?
I know, I know…you’ll try re-defining climate to mean the average of weather and claim that the climate system isn’t what you mean by climate.

No. Next summer will be quite warm, and so will the one after that. That’s a fairly predictable cycle.
I’m going to dump 500 billion tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere – I predict it will get chaotically warmer.

Tony, re: “summer will be warm…”:
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I understood that the warming trends are mostly about warmer winter anomalies and warmer nights vs. Summer and daytime highs (both of which don’t alarm me much). If so, why are you so sure next summer will be warmer (in the NH)?

“I’m going to dump 500 billion tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere – I predict it will get chaotically warmer.”
And I predict that it will result in a boost in the biosphere, both on land and in the ocean, which will result in a huge boost in plankton and other ocean borne lifeforms, with the ultimate result that the vast majority of this CO2 ends up sequestered on the bottom of the ocean floor in the form of vast carbonate deposits.
And that’s not simply speculation, that’s exactly what happened during the cretaceous period. It’s why the planet never suffered runaway greenhouse warming even during times (like the cretaceous) when CO2 levels were much higher than they are today.

Tony M: “No. Next summer will be quite warm, and so will the one after that. That’s a fairly predictable cycle.

Warm summers and cold winters are not what the warmists are talking about. They are talking about the Global Average Temperature, a mathematically derived value. Global warming says nothing about summers not being warm and winters not being cold. It does imply warmer summers and warmer winter, but does not predict the elimination of seasons. As an average, it also allows for many variations locally. It cannot predict local climate changes.
As for the second part, I predict nothing bad will happen. And?

Here’s a recap of the Gore storey up to now.
Pinwheels and Mirrors
A long time ago (in the 80’s or so),
Al Gore warned that warming would soon be alarming;
“Our children won’t know what it’s like to see snow!
Fair gaia we must stop harming!”
He’d studied, in college, on James Hansen’s knowledge.
Then, over years of political careers,
He pondered this notion: The atmosphere and oceans
Are useful to raise public fears.
He made presentations to all the world’s nations.
His film (sci-fi trash) was a box office smash!
Academy sensation! Oscars, nominations
And copious currents of cash!
Then unto him fell the Peace Prize, Nobel…
Authority, on him was vested.
(Debates he must quell, for he knows quite well:
Models failed when reality tested.)
So, grew the meme of anthropogenic extreme.
While insiders profited highly,
Those who objected were quickly subjected
To ridicule (and regarded vilely).
Pinwheels and mirrors now litter the lands…
Power lines, mile after mile.
On high plains, sea cliffs and desert sands
Our vistas, they now beguile.
But, collectors of government subsidies
Find them a beautiful sight,
Big mechanical menaces… begging a breeze
Or a sunbeam to ‘make their cost right’.
Decades upcoming threaten cold’s icy numbing-
Nature’s cycles, in concert, are waning.
The slowness to warm should have cancelled alarm,
But Al never ceases campaigning:
“We humans are bad, with our fossil fuel fad,
It’s a fast-building carbon disaster!
And now it’s two-fold! It’s causing the cold
And the hotness to come so much faster!”
Yet, while he’s pleading that all should be heeding
His carbon reduction ambitions,
He hopes you’re not seeing his own footprint being
Hundreds of poor folks’ emissions.
Let’s hope he’s thought out, while jetting about,
The messages of his actions.
By far they outweigh any words he might say,
In the minds of the wiser factions.

It’s been a year since Marc Murano’s “Climate Hustle” documentary debut and I haven’t been able to see it. I would have liked to. Maybe it’s just me but it should be available for free download by now. There is a shelf life to these latest installments in the “debate”. If it’s a money thing, then how about a download for $2.99? Or how about a break even goal where people like me could donate a $100 to make it “free” for others. I sure would like for climate agnostics, which most people are, to be able to hear a counter argument to Gore’s pablum.

Mairon62, “Climate Hustle” is still readily available on DVD from C-Fact priced, I think, $19.99. I only bought my copy within the last month because, erroneously, I was waiting for some notification that it was ‘now’ available for Region 2 (UK, Europe) playback. I sent Chris Rogers an email asking him when it would be available in Region 2, to which he replied that it was, in fact, Region 0 (or Region free), meaning it can be played anywhere!
I liked it, a lot. Just one, minor, criticism: I found it a little bit too fast-paced, almost breathless BUT being a DVD that is easily got around with the pause button, to give time to take it all in. Having followed the whole argument now for many years, I am fairly conversant with all the language used. But in a cinema situation, those new to the subject may find it slightly overwhelming.
One other criticism: being in the UK (and ordering from the US) I was forced to pay extra taxes etc. In the end, with the GPO extortionate “handling charge” of £8, my actual cost doubled to about £40. If only Amazon had had it, this could have been avoided.

Quote from wiki:
Mr Justice Burton declared the case a victory for the claimant stating “I conclude that the claimant substantially won this case by virtue of my finding that, but for the new guidance note, the film would have been distributed in breach of sections 406 and 407 of the 1996 Education Act”.
“A spokesman for Al Gore stated that, “Of the thousands of facts in the film, the judge only took issue with just a handful. And of that handful, we have the studies to back those pieces up”

“Albert Gore Jr. won the Nobel peace prize was vice president for 8 years without scandal …”
Not quite. Here are a few interesting quotes from the book, The Stupidest Things Ever Said by Politicians:
On Illegal Fund-Raisers at Buddhist Temples, Al Gore on:
Explanation number 1: It wasn’t a fund-raiser, it was a “community outreach event.”
Explanation number 2: It wasn’t a fund-raiser, it was just “finance-related.”
Explanation number 3: It wasn’t a fund-raiser, it was a “donor-maintenance meeting.”
There’s also this amusing tidbit:
On Historical Knowledge, Vice-Presidential:
“Who are these guys?”
Al Gore, referring to the busts of Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, and Lafayette on a televised tour of Monticello. (p. 109)
And this:
“A zebra cannot change its spots.” (p. 54)
And this:
On Senator’s Sons, Typical Days of:
“[My father] taught me how to clean out hog waste with a shovel and a hose. He taught me how to clear land with an ax. He taught me how to plow a steep hillside with a team of mules. He taught me how to take up hay all day long in the hot sun and then, after a dinner break, go help the neighbors take up hay before the rain came and spoiled it on the ground.”
Vice President Al Gore on the virtues of farm life, not mentioning that, as a rich senator’s son, all this was presumably learned on summer vacation from Harvard. A real farmer’s son, Republican National chairman Jim Nicholson, replied, “Mr. Vice President, with all due respect, you’re shoveling a lot more of it right now than you ever did back then.” (p. 141)
And this:
On Timing is Everything:
“[Due to pollution, cars pose] a mortal threat to the security of every nation.”
Senator Al Gore in his 1992 book,
Earth in the Balance.
“Here in Motor City we recognize that cars have done more than fuel our commerce. Cars have freed the American spirit and given us the chance to chase our dreams.”
Vice President Al Gore — while gearing up for his 2000 presidential run — in a 1999 speech to the Economic club of Detroit. (p. 253)
Wade (06:46:18) :
Ah yes, Al Gore. Does anybody remember the fuel additive MTBE? It just so happens that this fuel additive was ground water poison. It can be cleaned up, but it ain’t cheap. Does anybody remember who was the one pushing MTBE? Answer: Al Gore and Carol Browner.
Here is what is known. A disciple (and yes I mean disciple) of Al Gore, Carol Browner, knew MTBE was groundwater poison but destroyed those documents. The data was suppressed that showed a dissenting viewpoint; sound familiar?

That was during the Clinton Grand Triumphant bus ride through Virginia to D.C. The docent at Monticello has already done her little talk about the contents of the room (which includes a description of the busts and who sculpted them) when Algore asked that question, the look on her face was priceless. It was at that precise moment I realized that we had yet another idiot-elect VP. Of course he went on to prove this over and over during the next 8+ years. His climate nonsense was just another indication of his lack of knowledge.

I’m personally looking forward to the sequel. I mean, there are important questions unanswered by the first “Inconvenient Truth”, questions like “Why did you sell your TV station to Al Jazeera – what happened to the $100 million you took from the Qatar Oil Sheiks?“. Or “Why did you buy that Montecito beach view villa in 2010, if you thought sea level rise was about to engulf coastal towns?”. How about “How much electricity did you burn during Earth Hour 2009, when you left the lights on at your huge Tennessee mansion?“
Inconvenient truths indeed!!!

It would be rather nice if some sceptic film production company could be found to produce a film showing where the Inconvenient Truth propaganda film and its warnings therein have turned out to be so far from the truth, and to dig deep into the financial benefits that Gore has gained from attaching his businesses to the global warming falsehoods. that he has promoted. Much of the material for such a film would be readily available from this site. I for one would be happy to make a substantial donation towards the production of such a film.

December 11, 2016 4:41 am

Here’s part of Scott Adams’ blog post from yesterday, at

On Climate Change
Trump is also well on the way to changing the public’s thinking on climate change. Trump met with Al Gore, and he’s meeting with climate activist and actor Leonardo DiCaprio on the topic. Trump is looking for common ground and education on the topic, I assume, but he is almost certainly also looking for the persuasion buttons. And this is a hard one.
The simple, visual persuasion favors the climate alarmists. They can point to rising seas, super hurricanes, and droughts. We can imagine all of that stuff and it scares us. Fear plus a visual element make for the strongest persuasion.
On the other side of the debate there is no visual persuasion available. Normal weather is just normal. And since you can’t “prove a negative,” there is no way to prove human activity and C02 production will NOT be the tipping factor that ends civilization.
If you think many people believe in climate science predictions because of the science and the facts, you don’t know anything about human beings. We just observed an election in which facts and policies barely mattered at all. What matters is how we feel. Climate change is the same situation. All of the natural elements of persuasion are on one side. We can visualize bad weather and it scares us. The other side has nothing, persuasion-wise.
I’m not a scientist, so I can’t evaluate the claims of climate science. But I’m knowledgeable in persuasion, and I can tell you with a degree of certainty that the number of citizens that believe in climate science predictions of doom would be the same whether the science was valid or not, because the persuasion advantage points in that direction. If something is scary and you can visualize it, you treat it like it is real. Even if it isn’t.
Some say that the risk of climate change is unpredictable, and that’s reason enough to get serious about it. Maybe climate change will do nothing but help crops in some places. But maybe it will destroy civilization. Shouldn’t we take seriously any risk with that much downside?
Answer: No.
Because lots of risks have a worst-case scenario. And they all look terrible if you think about them long enough. It isn’t rational to make all of your major decisions based on the worst-case scenario for every situation.
My best guess from the perspective of a non-scientist observer is that human activity does change the atmosphere, but the climate prediction models are unlikely to be accurate because complicated models rarely are. Once you get more than three variables, and you have humans deciding which data to use and when to smooth it, you end up with nonsense. Climate science has more than a few variables. So I expect the models are nonsense, which is a separate issue from the underlying truth which could be anything. I don’t have any insight on the underlying truth of climate science. All I see is persuasion of various types.

Paramount to Release a Sequel to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”

Is it going to be called, “Wrong Again”?
Oddly enough, it was the hype about the original and The Weather Channel” that helped convince me CAGW was a sham, “political science’.
Back then the TWC’s “Weather on the 8’s” included the record highs and lows for the day. I noticed that records for my little spot on the globe didn’t seem to be reflecting what CAGW, as Al promoted, should be happening.
In 2007 I went to the NWS’s listed records of the highs and lows and found that most of the record highs were before 1950 and most of the record lows were after 1950. (This was years before I found WUWT.)
I went back about 5 years later and found that there were many new record highs and lows. Not new ones set, but old ones changed. (ie a new record high for the day “set” more recently was lower than the old record high for the day in the 2007 list.)
TWC stopped putting up the record highs and lows for the day a few years ago. (I wonder why?)
But I would like to thank them, the back then “them”, for helping to confirm my suspicions that Al was full of hot air.
