    Review quote
    "Magisterial . . . The passion is unmistakable. So is the knowledge. Practically every page offers an illumination."--Bloomberg "In "The Future" . . . Gore takes on a subject whose scale matches that of his achievements and ambition."--"The New York Times Book Review" " " "Historically grounded . . .
