An Inconvenient Sequel – Much More Positive Than I Expected

I had my first opportunity to see An Inconvenient Sequel this week and it left me feeling more positive about the future.

We are in the process of moving from Spain to New Zealand and taking a couple of months in the UK to sort out stuff (including sending our dog and Duncan’s Land Rover). This month, we are in Totnes, which is near-ish a good mechanic for the Land Rover, has great walks for the dog, is surrounded by trout rivers for Duncan and is a short drive from super beaches for me. Totnes was one of the first Transition Towns and has many environmentally-minded residents. So it was no surprise that An Inconvenient Sequel would have a well-attending showing in nearby Dartington. I walked there, via the river and through the massive Dartington estate.
