The Lovereading4Kids comment
Al Gore’s powerful contribution to the climate change debate is presented here in an accessible format for younger readers. His proposals are both simple and radical. He believes that climate change affects every part of our lives and that everyone has a part to play in doing all they can to slow the process. Our Choice offers inspiring ways of thinking about climate change at every level from the smallest personal decisions to the largest political strategies. Excellent illustrations match the text perfectly.
Our Choice: How We Can Solve the Climate Crisis by Al Gore
Al Gore has been a passionate advocate of action to halt climate change for many years. In his bestselling book An Inconvenient Truth , adapted from his acclaimed film, he wrote about the urgent need to address the problems of climate change, presenting comprehensive facts and information on all aspects of global warming in a direct, thoughtful and compelling way, using explanatory diagrams and dramatic photographs to clarify and highlight key issues. Adopting the same lucid technique in Our Choice , he proposes solutions at every level of our lives, from the personal and local, to the national and political, to the area of international policy and law. For this young adult edition, the text has been edited down with a 12-year-old-plus readership in mind, so sections aimed specifically at adults will be omitted in favour of clear text, appropriate photographs and easily understandable graphs. The overall aim is to gear the content towards the people who will, in fact, be dealing with global warming throughout their lives.
'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' Time Out
'A lucid account of what Gore rightly calls a moral issue , delivered with authority, wit and style' Observer
