I’ve just been to see the new film: ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power’. Ten years after the first film, ‘An Inconvenient truth’ it exposes the effects of climate change on the melting of the Greenland glaciers, the effects of increasingly severe storms in the Philippines, increasing rain causing flooding, increasing solar energy causing drought – the list goes on.
It documents the negotiations of the Paris Climate Agreement to get India on board (India contributes 65% of the world’s carbon emissions). It made it very clear to me why we in Australia should not be selling coal to India.
It documents the move to train youth in reducing carbon emissions. I think this is an important film to be seen by students and all concerned individuals. Its on at the Gold Coast Arts Centre and other cinemas.
The decreasing cost of solar cells has meant many towns in the USA have switched to 100% solar power to fulfil all their power needs. Other countries are following them.
The climate change skeptics are becoming increasingly isolated as the evidence accumulates. President Trump in not ratifying the Paris agreement, is out of step with his people and likely to see further unrest in the USA, as social protest builds.
