Former US vice president Al Gore will address how the perils of climate change can be overcome as he arrives in the UK for the premiere of his new documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power.

The film is a follow-up to his blockbuster 2006 global warming film, An Inconvenient Truth.

The sequel will detail the former vice president’s travels to the areas hardest hit by the effects of climate change and his fight to influence international climate policy.

It will also address US President Donald Trump’s election victory and decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power is released in UK cinemas on August 18.
