A decade after An Inconvenient Truth (2006) brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution.
A sequel to The Inconvenient Truth, this documentary addresses the progress made to tackle the problem of climate change and global efforts to persuade governmental leaders to invest in renewable energy.
A discussion panel will immediately follow in the Barnes & Noble meeting room (across from the theatre) with light refreshments.
