Ealing Transition will host a showing of ‘An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power’ next Sunday, 4th February.

A decade after ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, this follow-up shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Cameras follow former US Vice President Al Gore as he travels the world training climate champions and influencing international climate policy.

The showing of ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ will be followed by discussion and refreshments. The event will be held at St Mary’s Church, St Mary’s Road, Ealing, W5 5RH. Entry is free but donations to help cover costs are welcome.
