Paramount PicturesAdam Levine, Paul McCartney, OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder and U2‘s Bono are among the stars featured in a new video promoting the film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, the follow-up to former Vice President Al Gore‘s environmentally-themed 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
In the clip, posted on Paramount Pictures’ official YouTube channel, celebrities explain why they’re “inconvenient” when it comes to supporting the fight against global warming.
McCartney declares, “I’m inconvenient for the future of the planet,” while Bono says, “The poorest of the poor are furious because they’re hit first and worst by climate change.”
Adam, father of 11-month-old Dusty Rose, says, “I’m inconvenient for my still-growing family.”
Ryan, who with OneRepublic recorded the song “Truth to Power” for the movie’s soundtrack, says, “I’m inconvenient because more often than not, doing the right thing is not always the most convenient thing.”
The Chainsmokers also appear, saying, “It’s our responsibility to be inconvenient for future generations.” Jennifer Hudson adds, “I’m inconvenient for my children’s children.”
Other celebs appearing in the video include Pharrell Williams, Randy Jackson, the band DNCE and Randy Jackson.
An Inconvenient Sequel focuses on Gore’s continuing efforts to promote awareness of climate change, and fight for the adoption of policies that support sustainable and clean energy.
A social media campaign launched in conjunction with the film and video asks people to post why they’re inconvenient when it comes to fighting climate change, using the hashtag #BeInconvenient.
An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is in theaters now.
