Yesterday evening, your solitary reporter attended a screening, right here in Denver, of An Inconvenient Sequel, starring former Vice President Al Gore.
The film is indeed a sequel to Gore’s 2006 award-winning film, An inconvenient Truth, about the manifest dangers of global warming.That film received the Academy Award for best documentary film.
Former Centennial State Gov. Dick Lamm attended, with his wife Dottie, whom everyone in Colorado loves.
At the beginning of An Inconvenient Sequel, Gore is engaged in a colloquy in a Senate hearing with the nation’s most prominent climate change denier, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma). Inhofe is the author of the notoriously wrong The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future. Inhofe attacked Gore verbally, and then Gore suggested to Inhofe that the two of them have a polite conversation away from the cameras, but Inhofe wasn’t in the least interested.
As associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith, also in the audience, watched in bewilderment, Inhofe strode into the theater and denounced Gore and his fellow environmentalists for failing to heed the word of God.
Reached for comment at home, Gore said he has a great plan to defeat Sen. James Mountain Inhofe, 82, in 2020, but Inhofe, for his part, said that he isn’t worried about that in the least. “I’m more worried about Guam and Alaska getting nuked by Kim Jongun,” he told Smith.
