"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."

59 Confederate symbols have been removed, relocated or renamed since anti-racism protests began over George Floyd's death, a new Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) report finds.

Why it matters: That's a marked increase on previous years, per the report, which points out just 16 Confederate monuments were affected in 2019.
