Description

Al Gore has been a passionate advocate of action to halt climate change for many years. In his best-selling book, An Inconvenient Truth, 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 photos 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.show more

Review quote

PRAISE FOR 'AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH' 'An impeccable slideshow, with just the right balance of gut-wrenching photographs, comprehensive charts and frightening predictions.' New Scientist 'A lucid account of what Gore rightly calls "a moral issue", delivered with authority, wit and style.' The Observer '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 Outshow more
