Description

"An Inconvenient Truth"-Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling "Earth in the Balance"-is being published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes-and a leading expert-brings together leading-edge research from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness-and with humor, too-that the fact of global warming is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book-written in an accessible, entertaining style-will open the eyes of even the most skeptical.
