"Gore wants 'Inconvenient Sequel' ideas to follow people home," by AP's Marcela Isaza in Beverly Hills:

  • "The former vice president stars in 'An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power' [out today]... a follow-up to the 2006 Oscar-winning documentary about his efforts to combat climate change... The sequel arrives in a new world of smart homes, mass-produced electric vehicles and Donald Trump in the White House."
  • "Gore, 69, has championed environmental causes for more than 40 years..."
  • Gore: "Anybody who works on the climate crisis is tempted in some dark moments to despair but it doesn't last long for me. Despair is just another form of denial... The solutions are here. Electricity from solar and wind is now getting cheaper than electricity from fossil fuels and we are seeing a huge switch in that direction."

The Trump White House and its allies, over the past 18 months, assembled detailed lists of disloyal government officials to oust — and trusted pro-Trump people to replace them — according to more than a dozen sources familiar with the effort who spoke to Axios.

Driving the news: By the time President Trump instructed his 29-year-old former body man and new head of presidential personnel to rid his government of anti-Trump officials, he'd gathered reams of material to support his suspicions.
