Al Gore

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.

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.
