“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” the follow-up to Al Gore’s famous documentary on climate change, came to theaters this weekend. But more than a decade later, Gore's Oscar-winning cautionary tale about global warming isn't exactly holding up.
Alex Epstein, president of the Center for Industrial Progress, joined Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” to talk about everything that Gore got wrong in 2006’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and didn't explain properly in the sequel.
“This is probably going to surprise you, but his central claim is that he was even more right than he thought,” Epstein described Gore’s premise in “An Inconvenient Sequel.” Gore skirts the various problems in his first documentary by pretending to acknowledge what he got wrong without actually responding.
The two central threads in “An Inconvenient Sequel” are that renewable energy is taking over fossil fuels and that the climate is more at risk than ever.
Epstein debunked some examples of Gore’s “evidence,” explaining why the city that supposedly had 100 percent renewable energy wasn’t all that Gore said it was and how global trends tell us what’s actually going on.
