Livestreamed Q&A with Al Gore at SUNY-New Paltz 

(Jensen Walker | Paramount Pictures)

Have you seen Al Gore’s groundbreaking documentary on climate change, An Inconvenient Truth, or its recent follow-up, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power? Did watching either one make you wish that you could be in the audience for one of the former vice president’s live question-and-answer sessions as he barnstorms his way around the country, preaching the gospel of escaping the yoke of fossil fuel?

Well, now you can…kind of, thanks to the magic of Skype and livestreaming technology. On Thursday, October 26, the faculty/student/community Environmental Task Force at SUNY-New Paltz is plugging into a 70-minute livestream session with Al Gore himself, starting at 6:45 p.m. in Lecture Center 100. Students in participating college classes are being given an opportunity to e-mail questions to the tireless environmental crusader, some of which will be selected for Gore to answer on-air.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power will be screened twice at LC 100, both before the live-remote discussion at 5 p.m. and again afterwards at 8 p.m. Admission is free to all. To read Almanac Weekly’s review of the film, visit
