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.

About the Author:

Al Gore was the forty-fifth Vice President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton. Gore also served in the U. S. House of Representatives (1977–85) and the U. S. Senate (1985–93), representing Tennessee. Gore was the Democratic nominee for president in the 2000 election.

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
