GLOBAL WARN­ING

About 97 per cent of cli­mate sci­en­tists say cli­mate change is real, but one very non- sci­en­tific mind dis­agrees – U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump. It’s no sur­prise, really, that he isn’t a fan of the pop­u­lar vote given he’s fa­mously on the los­ing end of them, whether in elec­tions or when he made Amer­ica the lone hold­out as 19 of the G20 na­tions re-af­firmed their com­mit­ment to the 2015 Paris cli­mate ac­cord in June. But while Trump cries “Chi­nese hoax,” for­mer U.S. Vice-Pres­i­dent Al Gore, 69 and a pres­i­den­tial pop­u­lar vote win­ner, hopes to raise aware­ness with An In­con­ve­nient Se­quel: Truth to Power, the fol­low up to his Os­car­win­ning 2006 doc An In­con­ve­nient Truth, which gal­va­nized pub­lic opinion on cli­mate change. The se­quel skew­ers the re­cent dis­man­tling of U.S. en­vi­ron­men­tal poli­cies and is al­ready gar­ner­ing pos­i­tive re­views. An­other pop­u­lar vote loss for 45. —MC
