Mayor Dale Ross and wife Mickie settled in at City Lights for an exclusive look, sponsored by Paramount Pictures, of “An Inconvenient Sequel”. The full-length documentary is a follow up by the 2006 film about global warming that features Vice-president Al Gore’s forecasts for future Earth.
Mr. Gore visited Georgetown in August 2015 and spent the day with Mayor Ross talking about green energy efforts and the hope cities like Georgetown provide for those working to educate about what he considers to be a “global crisis.” The movie will be released August 4 in selected theaters nationally and Mayor Ross and several staff and media are featured briefly in the film.
“I am pleased with the exposure, not just in Texas but around the world,” Ross says. “Georgetown is more than just a suburb of Austin. We are finding solutions for ourselves and leading the way.”
