Al Gore and Participant Media, who made the first film, had been talking about a follow-up in the years after An Inconvenient Truth. And, I think, a number of things happened. One was that the story really has changed significantly in the last years, partly because of the cost down-curve of solar, wind, and other sustainable sources of energy has really become equal – if not lower – in many parts of the world to generate electricity that way.
And so, that was a significant update to the story. When An Inconvenient Truth came out it was sort of a hopeful thing that solar and wind might someday help us solve the problem. But really, in 2015, when we started filming, that reality was really true and potentially… It had amazing potential for this revolution, this sustainability revolution.
My interview with Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (pictured above, mainly because I don’t have a good picture of them both together)! They directed An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth 2 Power. I am quite interested in what the possible third one might end up being called. Something about three energy?
