'An Inconvenient Truth' Producers Talking Sequel
Judging by the quotes in the Hollywood Reporter article, no one involved in the first "Inconvenient Truth" film intends to do anything except tell another bunch of lies.
[Producer Lawrence] Bender believes that during the ensuing years, the fossil-fuel industry has changed the dialogue with a misinformation campaign. "They did a really good job of pushing back and confusing people," he says. "Some people actually believe global warming doesn't exist."
Environmental activist Laurie David also believes a sequel should be on the agenda. "God, do we need one," she says. "Everything in that movie has come to pass. At the time we did the movie, there was Hurricane Katrina; now we have extreme weather events every other week. The update has to be incredible and shocking."
My guess is that what the producers would like to do is clean up their mess. The years that have passed since the film came out have not been kind to Al Gore and his merry band eco-freaks. The planet has stopped warming, we are getting fewer hurricanes (not more as the film predicted), and the oh-so dramatic hockey hockey stick moment has been proven a lie.
The left never retreats, apologizes, or admits they were mistaken. With the power of media and Hollywood, they just rewrite history and push on.
