In this follow-up to his groundbreaking AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, former Vice President Al Gore explores the causes of the current climate crisis and what we can do to help solve it. In full color, with photographs, graphics, and illustrations throughout.
Former Vice President Al Gore is currently the chairman of both Current TV and Generational Investment Management. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976 and the U.S. Senate in 1984 and 1990, and served eight years as vice president of the United States, from 1993 to 2000. He is the author of the 1992 bestseller Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit. He lives with his wife, Tipper, in Nashville, Tennessee.
In his new book, Al Gore argues that consumers have "all the tools we need" to solve climate change. But unless the United States takes a leadership role, "it would be impossible to resolve this crisis," he tells NPR. More at NPR.org
