Former Vice President Al Gore premiered his latest climate change documentary at Sundance Film Festival’s opening night but refused to answer questions about previous failed predictions. The new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel," comes out 11 years after the first movie debuted at Sundance. The fact that it was shown on the eve of Inauguration Day was entirely coincidental.

In 2006’s “An Inconvenient Truth," Gore said the planet was headed toward a “true planetary emergency” and we had 10 years to save the planet. Gore also told CBS News in January 2006 that “unless drastic measures” are taken “to reduce greenhouse gases” the “world will reach a point of no return.”

Inconvenient question

Marc Morano's Climate Depot, which debuted its own film “Climate Hustle” last year to counter the false narrative in “An Inconvenient Truth," sent an ‘undercover agent’ to Sundance over the weekend.

The Depot staffer found Gore leaving a late-day private party at the restaurant Zoom in Park City, Utah. As Gore was trudging through feet of snow to reach his super-sized Chevy Suburban SUV, the Depot staffer armed with a cameraman approached Gore.

The staffer told Gore she had just seen the sequel, which prompted the climate warrior to say: “Oh great, thank you.” The staffer then told Gore her friends were making fun of her because the 10-year tipping point never came true, and she wanted to know how to respond. Startled by the question, Gore replied: “Well, we gotta keep working.” After pausing a moment, he and his entourage got into his Chevy Suburban and drove away.

Ten years of failed forecasts

In July 2008, Gore doubled down and said leading experts had given the planet less than 10 years to “make dramatic changes” to greenhouse gas levels, “lest we lose our ability to ever recover from this environmental crisis.” Gore has been making failed global warming predictions since foregoing a career in politics to become a full-time climate enthusiast.

He has also linked extreme weather to climate change despite observable science showing otherwise.

Film critics note that Gore’s sequel was hurriedly re-edited because President Donald Trump won the election, and not his candidate Hillary Clinton. And it shows. The far-left website Vox called the filmmaking “not very good” and was like watching “taped lectures.” They noted it was hastily shot and chopped, leaving the viewer feeling like they were getting “dropped off a cliff.”

CO2 concentrations as measured by the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii are hovering at approximately 404.48 parts per million (ppm) and have budged very little in 10 years (they generally go up during the winter as there is little vegetation in the Northern Hemisphere). Since Gore’s first movie premiered, CO2 levels have risen about 2-3 PPM a year and NASA said the excess gas is responsible for the Earth becoming greener.
