KALIBO, AKLAN – The sequel to the film documentary of former US Vice President and Nobel Prize winner Al Gore will feature the Philippine actions against climate change.
Matthew Boms, international manager of Climate Reality Project, said the Philippines has a 20-minute airtime in the documentary that will be released on July 2017.
Boms disclosed this while in Kalibo town earlier this week to visit the family of the late congressman and environmentalist Allen Salas Quimpo.
“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” features the visit of Gore in the country last year. Gore came to Leyte and saw the havoc wrecked by super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), which hit the Visayas last November 2013.
Meanwhile, Quimpo received a posthumous award from the Senate as part of activities leading to Earth Day on April 22.
During his time as congressman and even after retiring from politics, Quimpo championed the mangrove plantation project that was even lauded by the United Nations. (Jun N. Aguirre with a report from Tara Yap)
