    QUICK NEWS, August 21: Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ Is A ‘Teaching Tool’; Target Targets Big Wind Buy; Michigan Grows Its Solar Garden

    Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ Is A ‘Teaching Tool’ An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power review – another climate change lesson from Al Gore; A necessary essay from the sharp end of the global warming crisis

    Jonathan Romney, 20 August 2017 (UK Guardian)

    “Davis Guggenheim’s An Inconvenient Truth (2006) was an effective consciousness-raising exercise, focusing on Al Gore’s ‘slide shows’…[and] the reality of climate change…The just-released sequel An Inconvenient Sequel; Truth to Power brings home the intensification of the crisis…[A]s the film’s timeline approaches the present, the spectre of Trump looms like an iceberg on a foggy Arctic night. As Gore visits the world’s environmental flashpoints, the footage of floods, storms and exploding glaciers adds ballast to the statistics. There’s a sliver of against-the-clock narrative at the 2015 Paris climate summit, although the film simplifies matters in suggesting that India’s coming on board was the result of Gore making a few well-placed phone calls behind the scenes…[In short, the film is another] teaching tool…” click here for more

    Vicki Gerdes, August 20, 2017 (D-L Online)

    “A three-year project to bring affordable solar power to Detroit Lakes residents has at last borne fruit…Two arrays, each containing 40 solar panels, were installed at the Detroit Lakes Public Utilities solar garden site…[There are] 12 subscriptions left…[A]ll DLPU customers are eligible to purchase those subscriptions, at a cost of $1,075 per solar panel…[C]ustomers who purchase the maximum six panels could see a significant savings…Six panels could produce close to 40 percent of a customer's yearly energy needs…Though the current site has room for at least a couple more arrays…[they] won't be added until the DLPU has signed up enough solar customers to make it financially feasible…” click here for more
