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.From Booklist:
The title says it all: our choices determine the earth’s future, and in this young readers’ edition of his similarly titled adult book, Gore speaks straight to the generation that will tackle those decisions. As in his young readers’ edition of An Inconvenient Truth (2007), Gore once again presents a holistic call for action: “We have to change our laws, we have to change the way we do business, and we have to change the way we think.” Gore points to the integral role of youth in the civil-rights movement and challenges his young audience to act on a similar scale, raise awareness of environmental issues, and demand that current lawmakers and executives adopt dramatic, earth-friendly practices. As in the adult edition, the substantive chapters are filled with color photos and diagrams that illustrate the cogent, persuasive text. As in An Inconvenient Truth, the lack of source notes is disappointing. Still, the passionate, informed coverage of environmental issues, from alternative fuel technologies to political obstacles in Washington, makes this an invaluable resource for school and public libraries. Grades 6-9. --Gillian Engberg
