Story : A follow up to the 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, where former American Vice President Al Gore attempts to make us aware of the rapidly multiplying dangers of the climate-change crisis.

Review : For the Indian audience, the most relevant part of An Inconvenient Sequel is the recorded meeting between Al Gore and Indian minister Piyush Goyal (power, coal, new and renewable energy), in which Gore suggests, nay, pleads with Goyal to strive for 100% renewable energy. Goyal states that India will do it after 150 years, when the per-capita income will be equivalent to America’s and when Indians will have used up as much coal as Americans did before realizing a need for renewable resources.

The response, whether or not rooted in logic, brings to attention our attitude towards an escalating global crisis. At another juncture, directors Cohen and Shenk focus on Gore's negotiations with India at 2015’s UN Climate Change Conference. This part, treated like an intriguing thriller, is full of high-power deals and clever detours, where Gore emerges the hero, facilitating a mutually beneficial plan for India and the larger global goal.

An Inconvenient Sequel stays true to its message, and through clips of Gore at his Climate Leadership Training sessions, highlights just how grave the situation is. It is populated with eye-opening statistics and visits to areas most affected by the climate crisis. It lists Kolkata and Mumbai as high-risk cities; travels to Philippines to shine a light on the havoc wrecked by Typhoon Haiyan and goes to Miami, the city most vulnerable to calamities caused by climate change. Gore also includes anomalies like the Republican mayor of a small Texan town opting for solar energy and demonstrates how the long-abandoned DSCOVR Satellite came to be launched.

Its only lulls lie in the information-heavy bits (which only reiterate previously established facts) and parts where Gore comes off as an alarmist owning to his angry outbursts. But the documentary works wonderfully as a primer for someone totally unaware of the gravity of the issue, and will reinforce the need for swift action for the ones in the know.
