Former Vice President Al Gore is rolling out a sequel to his nearly decade-old climate change documentary "An Incovenient Truth," which is expected to offer a critique of President Trump in light of global warming.
Gore tweeted Thursday that the movie, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power," will be out in theaters July 28, just ahead of the August congressional recess.
The trailer for the movie begins with Trump on the campaign trail, complaining about how cold it was outside. "Speaking about global warming. We need some global warming. It's freezing," Trump is featured saying with ominous music playing in the background.
Gore then discusses what the first movie portrayed as rising sea levels eventually consuming parts of Manhattan, including the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack site. Then it jumps to Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and CNN reports showing the Sept. 11 site being flooded as proof that Gore was right.
The trailer doesn't devote much time to criticizing Trump's presidency directly, but uses clips of him talking about rolling back the Environmental Protection Agency's budget, with dramatic effects such as shock on bystanders' faces.
"What were you thinking," Gore roars at a crowd in one scene after Trump is featured discussing his agenda to rein in EPA climate regulations. "Don't let anyone tell you we're going to get on rocket ships to live on Mars. This is our home."
The trailer release comes two days after Trump issued his Energy Independence Executive Order to kill former President Barack Obama's climate change agenda and regulations.
It also comes on the 11-year anniversary of Gore's first film effort. Expect to hear a lot more from Gore in the run-up to the new film's release.
