GORE: TRUMP CAN’T STOP PROGRESS ON CLI­MATE

Metro USA (New York) - - News - REUTERS

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump can­not stop mo­men­tum to tackle cli­mate change, for­mer U.S. vice pres­i­dent Al Gore said on Mon­day as he pro­moted his lat­est film on global warm­ing at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val. “An In­con­ve­nient Se­quel: Truth to Power” is the fol­low up to “An In­con­ve­nient Truth,” the doc­u­men­tary cred­ited with bring­ing cli­mate change into main­stream po­lit­i­cal dis­course in the United States a decade ago.

Shot mostly be­fore Trump’s elec­tion, it fea­tures the Repub­li­can can­di­date on the cam­paign trail promis­ing to abol­ish en­vi­ron­men­tal reg­u­la­tions and boost the coal and oil in­dus­tries. At one point Trump tells a rally: “We need some global warm­ing — it’s freez­ing!”
