Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al Gore is the former Vice President of the United States (1993-2001), the 2000 Democratic Party presidential nominee, and the co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He has been involved with the environmental activist movement for a number of decades. Gore stated in an interview for the New York Times that his interest in environmentalism began when he was a teenager: As I was entering high school, my mother was reading Silent Spring and the dinner table conversation was about pesticides and the environment [...] The year I graduated from college the momentum was building for Earth Day. After Vietnam, as I was entering divinity school, the Club of Rome report came out and the limits to growth was a main issue.show more
