The follow-up of Oscar-winning ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ will be released on the Sundance movie festival this January.
Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States under Bill Clinton, said in a statement (participantmedia.com): “Now more than ever we must rededicate ourselves to solving the climate crisis. But we have reason to be hopeful”.
The film was announced Friday and will be produced by Paramount Pictures and Participant Media. In the first documentary, filmmaker Davis Guggenheim presented Gore`s travelling slide show on global warming. In the second part, Mr. Gore will document advances and challenges in the fight against climate change.
“A decade after we took a risk in backing a film centered around a slide show presentation and one human’s quest to awaken global consciousness about our changing planet, we are proud to bring global audiences a promising update: that a future powered by clean, safe, renewable, inexpensive, non-polluting energy is no longer a dream but a very attainable reality.”, said in a press release (participantmedi.com), Jeff Scoll , the executive producer, founder and chairman of Participant Media.
Mr. Gore has been dedicated to informing the world about the climate change issue. At the same time, he has been a proponent of technologies similar to Bitcoin, according to cryptocoinnews.com. Mr. Gore seems to like the fact that Bitcoin is online. Banks may be able to regulate much easier, if similar model are introduced, reads on the website.
“When Bitcoin currency is converted from currency into cash, that interface has to remain under some regulatory safeguards. I think the fact that within the Bitcoin universe an algorithm replaces the functions of [the government] … is actually pretty cool”, said Al Gore in an interview with PYMNTS.com quoted in cryptocoinnews.com. “I know that there are a lot of innovators that are out there that are trying to think up … come up with new models and I look forward to that.”
It remains unclear, if Al Gore will accept Bitcoin for his second climate change movie.
