The Lovereading4Kids comment

A must for teenagers. Powerful photographs make their points eloquently and from them Al Gore argues passionately for everyone to do everything they can to slow down the rate at which the climate is being destroyed. The message is irresistible and Gore is hugely persuasive.

Synopsis

An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore

Talks about the urgent need to solve the problems of climate change, presenting facts and information on various aspects of global warming, using explanatory diagrams and dramatic photos to clarify and highlight key issues.

Reviews

'You can't fault his sincerity, rigour and energy as he pleads, with recourse to blinding graphs and damning photo evidence, that we all, especially his fellow countrymen, need to sit up and realise that global warming is neither a wacky theory nor a political manifesto, but stone-cold reality.'

'An impeccable slideshow, with just the right balance of gut-wrenching photographs, comprehensive charts and frightening predictions.'

'A lucid account of what Gore rightly calls 'a moral issue', delivered with authority, wit and style.'

About the Author

Al Gore

Albert Arnold Gore, Jr is the former forty-fifth Vice President of the United States, who served 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. A prominent environmental activist, Gore was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (together with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) for the "efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."

Gore was the Democratic nominee for president in the 2000 election, ultimately losing to the Republican candidate George W. Bush in spite of winning the popular vote. A legal controversy over the Florida election recount, eventually settled in favor of Bush by the Supreme Court, made the election one of several controversial Presidential elections in American history.

More recently, Gore has been an environmental activist, lecturing on the topic of global warming, which he labels "the climate crisis." In 2006, he appeared in the An Inconvenient Truth, a documentary film that described vividly the causes and consequences of global warming. The film won multiple awards, including the 2006 Academy Award for Documentary Feature and Academy Award for Best Original Song. Gore helped to organize the July 7, 2007 benefit concert Live Earth in an effort to raise awareness about climate change. Today, Gore is chairman of the American television channel Current TV, chairman of Generation Investment Management, a director on the board of Apple Inc. An unofficial advisor to Google's senior management, chairman of the Alliance for Climate Protection and a partner in the venture capital firm, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, heading that firm's climate change solutions group.
