Al Gore delivers powerful remarks at Milken Institute Summit
Former Vice President Al Gore’s powerful remarks at the Milken Institute’s Asia Summit and Women’s Leadership Summit are making headlines and inspiring audience members to take to Twitter with impactful quotes and highlights from his sessions. As the headliner of each event’s session, “Al Gore: Leading the Charge for Environmental Action” and “A Conversation With Al Gore: How to Inspire a Movement,” Gore touched on resilience, how to mobilize support for meaningful causes, and what’s next in the movement to combat climate change. Gore highlighted that investors, rather than government, could be the driving force for positive change, and emphasized how diversity and empowerment of women is crucial to any movement’s progress. Fresh off the success of his critically acclaimed documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power—for which he was hailed as a “star orator” with a gift “for making statistics enthrall” by The Financial Times—Gore brings the same energy, passion, and informative presentation style on display in the film to each of his speaking engagements.
Al Gore and An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power receive rave reviews
Selected as a New York Times Critic's Pick and certified FRESH by Rotten Tomatoes, Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power is receiving stellar reviews. A compelling and informative follow-up to Gore's groundbreaking and Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth, the documentary provides an updated look at the world's climate crisis, following Gore as he leads dynamic Climate Reality Leadership training sessions, engages in negotiations at the Paris Climate Conference, and explores both the devastating effects of global warming and the innovative progress that has been made. Here is a sample of the praise the documentary is receiving: “In a summer movie landscape with Spider-Man, a simian army waging further battle for the planet and Charlize Theron as a sexy Cold War-era superspy, it says something that one of the most compelling characters is Al Gore... An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is a reboot that justifies its existence..." (The New York Times); "Mr. Gore remains a prodigy of hope, with energy that seems endlessly renewable" (The Wall Street Journal); "You feel he's got enough wind to power another sequel. What's extraordinary is that this one, after a decade of global-warming fatigue, feels as vital as it does" (Variety); “I had a geology professor in college, who, whenever he drew a volcano on the blackboard, also drew a village nearby that was going to be buried in lava when it erupted. Always got a laugh ... and also made a point. Al Gore is like that prof — and An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is a hugely effective lecture" (NPR). A passionate pioneer and gifted speaker, Gore always finds new and exciting ways to connect with his audience. As much as An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is an imperative update on the world's climate crisis, it is also a testament to Gore's unique vision and prominence as a global leader.
