The climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly -- and has become a true planetary emergency. The Chinese expression for crisis consists of two characters. The first is a symbol for danger; the second is a symbol for opportunity. In order to face down the danger that is stalking the planet and move through it, listeners first have to recognize that they are facing a crisis. So why is it that public leaders seem not to hear such clarion warnings? Are they resisting the truth because they know that the moment they acknowledge it, they will face a moral imperative to act? Is it simply more convenient to ignore the warnings?

Perhaps, but inconvenient truths do not go away just because they are not seen. Indeed, when they are not responded to, their significance doesn't diminish; it grows.

From AudioFile:

In this succinct abridgment of Gore's treatise on global warming, we learn what greenhouse gasses are, how long scientists have been measuring them, what they do, and what we can do to reduce them. The U.S. government has not pushed reforms for reasons of politics and convenience, but Gore maintains that individuals can help by buying energy-saving light bulbs and hybrid vehicles and supporting wind power. Beau Bridges reads the autobiographical parts well, particularly the sensitive section on Gore's sister Nancy's death from lung cancer. But one is aware that Bridges's voice is not the former Vice President's. Nixon and Underwood (familiar TV actors) do a good sell job with the remaining sections. All of this is well organized and certainly worth heeding. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
