Apple CEO Tim Cook made a special appearance during one of the first screenings of former vice president Al Gore’s new movie this week.
To kick off the Silicon Valley screening of Gore’s film, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” Cook gave a short speech before the silver screen lit up. Tim praised Gore for his work on the movie which is a direct sequel to the Academy Award-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” which highlighted the signs and dangers of climate change.

“Ten years later, there’s still signs all around us of the climate crisis, but there’s also great reasons for optimism,” said Cook. “Markets are rewarding renewable energy everywhere, but of course the clock still runs, and the urgency has never been greater, and so I think there has never been a better time for this film.”
Al Gore has been an Apple board member since 2003. During a Q&A session after the screening he praised Apple for its efforts to run on 100 percent renewable energy.
The movie follows Al Gore as he goes around educating people on the dangers of global warming and climate change. Gore even talks to Donald Trump in the film after he won the presidential election. “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” is set to hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
