Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
"Lucid, harrowing, and bluntly effective....The author's wonky fascination with policy minutiae has been tamed in these pages, and his love of charts and graphs has been put to good use...Mr. Gore's stripped-down narrative emphasizes facts over emotions, common sense over portentous predictions....Mr. Gore shows why environmental health and a healthy economy do not constitute mutually exclusive choices, and he enumerates practical steps that can be taken to reduce carbon emissions to a point below 1970s levels."
Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 05/23/2006Review:
"...Gore has put together a coherent account of a complex topic that Americans desperately need to understand....By telling the story of climate change with striking clarity...Al Gore may have done for global warming what SILENT SPRING did for pesticides."

Brand New Audio CD, still in original publisher's shrink wrap, light handling.() 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. --Al Gore All orders are shipped by Kbooks every business day using USPS Media Mail for American orders and Canada Post for Canada bound orders (from Toronto).
