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?“.

With the 9 convenient lies?

Catcracking

Yes an early example of FAKE news, carried by the networks.

Brian H

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

jorgekafkazar

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.

markl

Money is no object for the producers. All expenses related to the movie become either a tax write off or a valid expenditure for a nonprofit organization. They’ll show it for free.

ddpalmer

Will this sequel come with the disclaimers already attached or it have to be taken to court like the first one?

Taken to court, of course.

auto

Should we start crowd-funding now?

So many good questions, so little time for a backward look from Al.

Someone should release a movie entitled – “Inconvenient Facts”.

Mike McMillan

This sequel should be titled “Trust Us”

So, they are going to show Avatar?

The first time – Tragedy.

One of Marx’ few good lines. Karl, that is, not Groucho, who had a lot of them.

Gary Pearse

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.

well….just look at who’s doing the pissing and moaning
Every political, government, country…every organization…every business…every everything that was in line to get our money

Taking into effect the Gore effect, this may be the turning point at which the world begins to cool.

No Peter the Festival starts and a freak snowstorm buries Utah in 5 feet of snow….. and we don’t hear from Arch Bishop Gore for weeks.

pameladragon

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.

“still-untitled” Here’s one -“An Inconvenient Truth, The Wrath of ManBearPig”. I’m serial!

How about ” A Convenient Untruth”. That’s what he should have called to last one but the title is still available.

See also the WUWT Reference Pages tab at the top of this page for MUCH information to refute the junk science with which the sequel will no doubt be riddled.

Dave Kelly

Released in January? Why do I sense the cold cold winds of the Gore effect?

That’s right. With his track record, it is kind of irresponsible to be releasing this in January.

It’s debuting at the Sundance Film festival. Gore didn’t pick the date for that.

Felflames

If he shows up they may need to rename it the Ice Fair Film Festival.

gnomish

Algor mortis.
such a wonderful name for the gore effect, no?

nigelf

So this new version will have to admit that pretty well none of things Gore said in 2006 has come to pass?
Awkward.

ClimateOtter

I’m still waiting for the sequel to Spaceballs.

Is Michael Moore or Michael Mann to be the writers,as both are noted for political fiction?

Stephen Singer

There’s a name for one doing the same stupid thing over and over again. What is it?

Pauly

Stephen, I spent 27 years in the military. I could give you a long list of names for that.

The list is long and distinguished.
Regardless thought, you still can’t fix stupid.

jorgekafkazar

There are some things it’s possible to do too well. Maybe waging war is one of them.

A liberal democrat?

Felflames

In the engineering community we have a name for people that keep doing that.
Unemployed.

David Chappell

Problem is, Gore is a parasite and doesn’t need to work.

No, i think Gore is a priest/politician, and the usual shallow person who has enough of a congregation/constituency even shallower than himself who wants affirnation by what he is preaching.

Gerry, England

Socialism?

markl

Shows you how much money the alarmists have at their disposal for propaganda. Anybody that still believes this is about temperature is seriously naive. A Populist movement seems to be gaining traction in Democratic countries and I believe the AGW scam will be one of the institutions that loses all credibility. People aren’t that stupid after all.

Ron

Really? Obama was elected twice!

Brian H

To the eternal shame of the American public. Be careful about asking for fundamental change, lest you get it.

The second time was just to reinforce how stupid it was the first time.

jorgekafkazar

As was the philanderer, Clinton I.

Pauly

Could I suggest that timing of the movie’s release presumed a different outcome to the election, when this sequel was proposed to Paramount?

markl

Or perhaps timed to coincide with a change in administration to keep the flock in line? There’s been a lot of frantic name calling, accusations, donation requests, and the usual misinformation coming out of the warmist camp since the Presidential election. They’re acting scared….and they should be.

PiperPaul

Maybe the theatres are supposed to be staging locations for climate-flavored mass protest, social justice mob action.

wws

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.

Wasn’t virtually everything Hollywood did presuming a different outcome to the election?

auto

Reality
“Wasn’t virtually everything Hollywood did presuming a different outcome to the election?”
“Wasn’t virtually everything Hollywood ever did presuming a different outcome to any election?”

Auto

jorgekafkazar

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.

The one thing really likely about the sequel is that it will not be financed with Paramount’s money.

milwaukeebob

Or: Maria: So, Joe, what should we take the kids to see for Christmas vacation movie night this year?
Joe: How about that new movie, The Wizard of Goreism?
Maria: The WHAT? That sounds like a horror movie. We can’t take the kids to that for Christmas!
Joe: Maria. You can’t judge a movie by it’s title! It’s a comedy! Al Gore is the lead actor.
Marie: Oh! Sounds like fun. Where’s it playing…..???

Janice Moore

Cute. 🙂

A work of fiction . Same disasters, new time line… it should be entertaining. They should show it on Halloween as a scary movie. They had those Saturday afternoon horror movies, too. 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.
Ok, youse guys can rate this.. 1 or 2 stars ?

Juan Slayton

Black hole….

TonyL

I was thinking rate it 10:10
To remember that great 10:10 “No Pressure” video, where they blow up everybody who does not agree.
One storyboard should include a clip from the 10:10 video as a proposed “Final Solution” (to borrow a phrase) to the “skeptics” problem.

ozspeaksup

the syrian refugees? would appear to be needing snowshoes according to a report I read over at iceagenow.info today
ditto arabs;-)
and their camels might need to learn to pull sleds;-)

Steve Heins “As an informed witness of the last 20 years of broadband and energy, I humbly submit that nobody foresaw the year 2016, in Y2K, accurately. In fact, nobody was even close.”
It is even less likely that any of us will be seers or accurate futurists going forward.
Al has never, ever come close to predicting the future! Although, his bank account hasn’t seemed to notice.

pameladragon

According to the NYT, this year Sundance is going to focus on the important issues of climate change, the environment, race relations, and gender. One film, “Chasing Coral,” is about the tragedy of vanishing reefs around the world.
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/30/movies/sundance-film-festival-lineup.html?_r=0
They really thought Hillary was going to win, didn’t they?
PMK

They spent $1.2 billion on the election. More than ever before. Money generally wins.

joelobryan

If they were serious about racism they’d help Sub-Saharan Africa get affordable electricty distribution. They aren’t, so they won’t, and that tells everyone with critical thinking what the Left is really about.

Yes, but the Sundance Film festival was always a feel-good romp in progressive ideas. Audience appeal and revenue return were irrelevant. It’s pat each other on the back for being so nobel time.

jorgekafkazar

This will be the “Some-Dunce PC Film Festival.” Don’t fail to miss it, if you can.

commieBob

When the original was released the synopsis warned that we had only ten years to avert a major catastrophe. It hasn’t happened.
The original ended up in a British court where it was ruled that the film was political and contained serious errors. link
I suspect the new film will be even easier to debunk. What can he possibly say that we haven’t already heard a hundred times. Bring it on.

Two acadamy awards?I didn t know there was a category for propaganda

Felflames

Best unintentional comedy maybe ?

Special effects?

I want to see the MST3K guys review it. Lay it on, Tom Servo!!!

Title? Gore and greens

“Great green gobs of grimy greasy gorey gopher guts – and me without my spoon.”

Politenessman

Are they planning to call the movie “disregard my last, out”.

joelobryan

They need to issue Red-Green-Red arm bands as people exit the theater and then to see who puts them on.
Those who put them on go about their lives, always wearing it in public. Those who don’t get sent to re-education centers to “become literate about climatism” and learn the climate model prophesies.

“If you didn’t buy into my last movie, you’re sure to buy into this one,….. “

Thanks to posting this, I was going to do so this morning, but decided errands were more important.
Besides, I couldn’t find the name of the new movie. It turns out it doesn’t have one yet. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2016/12/10/goremoviesequel/ says:

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).

The environmental focus is a program that does have a name “The New Climate.” The full list of films and other events in that program are at http://www.sundance.org/blogs/news/followup-to-an-inconvenient-truth-to-world-premiere-at-2017-sundance-film-festival-as-day-one-screening

Too bad the sequel won’t address the egregious errors and falsified data in the first one.

ossqss

The most important thing to look for is if they actually get the Coriolis effect correct on the Hurricanes this time 🙂

The issue of climate has dropped to the bottom of public interest as nothing predicted ever occurred, so this is a desperate attempt by Communists to restart the discussion as a basis of a new world order. One where only the party elites have cars and electricity. The rest live in sustainability, also called depravity.

ossqss

My reference was to the Hurricane spinning the wrong way in the Northern Hemisphere on the original Inconvenient Truth cover. Just saying,,,,,,

Tiburon

depravity (sic) = sure you meant “deprivation” 😉

tony mcleod

Donald, mate? The Korean war is over, and since then we had one in Vietnam. How did you manage to miss all that? Have you been hiding in the jungle for 50 years?

schitzree

Um, what tony? Do you think Communism disappeared after the end of the Korean war? It didn’t even disappear from Korea. Which is why we still have a North and South Korea.
In case you missed it, the North one is the Communist one. It’s also the One where only the party elites have cars and electricity. The rest live in sustainability, also called depravity. (Or just poverty. Same difference)

+ 1

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. This belief substitutes for facts, of which they have nothing important to say.

tony mcleod

Science isn’t a debate. The climate science is settled. It is now just a matter of how much arming how soon.

tony mcleod

warming, in case you hadn’t guessed…

Chimp

Tony,
“Climate science” is far from settled. Real science is almost never settled. If it’s settled, it’s not science, to paraphrase the late, great Dr. Crichton.
Consensus isn’t science. It’s anti-science. CACA was born falsified. It’s a cult to get money and advance careers, like so many religious scams.

ossqss

Here is a good road map for you.comment image

joelobryan

I liked the arming post better. Pretty much game over for humanity at LIA 2.0

Leo Smith

Tony: No. ‘Arming’ is more apposite…

tony mcleod

lol.
Enough of it is settled. The risk of the so-called sceptics being wrong – on the balance of probabilities – is too great. Some here who are actually cheering for more warming are going to get a rude surprise.

Patrick MJD

“tony mcleod December 11, 2016 at 12:25 am”
So wrong it’s not even measurable…you have to make it up!

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.

Dale S

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?”

wws

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???

nn

They’re not even trying any more. Their indoctrination efforts that led to establishment of their fortunes was more successful when they hid their agenda under a thin veil of progressive popular culture. Now they’re just overtly “dirty.”

homercidel

I am certain that this sequel is so that he can retract all the bullcrap from the first one, apologise for his lies and tell everyone the truth…. surely

noaaprogrammer

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. Fake News is their Orwellian Ministry of Truth. The natural rise and fall of earth’s chaotic climate will always be intuitively apparent to the commoner. Sir Gore, you are uncommon.

tony mcleod

The climate is not chaotic, you’re thinking of weather. Simple mistake.

Pop Piasa

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

Michael Jankowski

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.

Leo Smith

Climate is chaotic.

tony mcleod

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.

Greg

“Climate is chaotic.” That’s OK, so are climate scientists.

Taylor Ponlman

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)?

wws

“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.
I’m going to dump 500 billion tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere – I predict it will get chaotically warmer.”
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?

noaaprogrammer

“The climate is not chaotic, you’re thinking of weather….”
No, it is only a matter of defining the scale of time used.

TomRude

“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.

From my pockets to his hands… That’s what he means…

nice post, thanks for sharing

joelobryan

NOAA needs to get ahead of the game and issue Algore Blizzard/Winter Storm Warnings for Park City, January 19-29, 2017. Epic levels of snow expected.

Pop Piasa

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.

Michael Jankowski

This is cause for celebration! Look at what Gore says…”“But we have reason to be hopeful; the solutions to the crisis are at hand.” SOLUTIONS ARE AT HAND, PEOPLE!!! I, for one, can NOT wait!!!

Nash

Gore’s sequel will be just as bad as Independent Day: Resurgent … just watch, gosh so awful … but the earth is saved!!

2hotel9

My first question when I saw the commercials for that was”They had 20 years, why are they still grubbing around in the mud instead of populating the solar system or hunting down the origin point of the aliens?” Then it hit me! Will Smith has to pay for a sex change for his son. Never mind.

mairon62

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.

Oh Deity’s Residence Above,
Just what the world doesn’t need …
An Inconvenient Sequel.
Mind you, it could be amusing sweepstake material:
Sweepstake 1: estimating its box-office receipts (or the lack of them).
Winner gets a free pass
Sweepstake 2: how many errors it repeats

Title: “Sancho Panza and the evil cooling towers”

Ex-expat Colin

Cost a lorry driver in UK £60k of a £200k court case to find the film was unsuitable for the classroom….sort of? It definitely was, requiring guidance on 9 points by teachers for it to proceed into class. This man should have is money returned and the UK tax payer…from Gore!
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”
The meaningless studies that will be!
