The trailer for “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” the second film in Al Gore’s franchise of climate change documentaries, depicts President Trump as an antagonist. The clip that Gore shared via Twitter on Wednesday shows the president at an airport rally held last April in Rochester, N.Y., where then-candidate Trump mocks the climate science consensus.
“It’s supposed to be 70 degrees today,” Trump says. “It’s freezing here! Speaking of global warming, where is — we need some global warming!”
As for Gore, the trailer vindicates the former vice president’s climate change predictions. Gore says that the most criticized part of 2006’s “Inconvenient Truth,” which won a documentary feature Oscar in 2007, was the notion that the World Trade Center Memorial could flood from rising sea levels and stronger storm surges. Smash cut to 2012 — “Hurricane Sandy slammed into New York City last night, flooding the World Trade Center site,” a newscaster says in the trailer.
The trailer jumps from the devastation wreaked by extreme weather events to shots of green energy infrastructure and Gore pumping the hand of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
