Gore writes An Inconvenient Truth, part two
Al Gore is making headlines again with his announcement of a follow-up book to An Inconvenient Truth entitled Our Choice.

Our Choice picks up where An Inconvenient Truth left off by offering solutions to the climate change problem. The book focuses on addressing the issue of climate change through policies that create jobs and fuel the economy. It is a collection of proposed solutions from policy experts, scientists and engineers " all of whom have their own ideas on how to address the climate change crisis.

In a press release Gore stated, “An Inconvenient Truth reached millions of people with the message that the climate crisis is threatening the future of human civilization and that it must and can be solved. Now that the need for urgent action is even clearer with the alarming new findings of the last three years, it is time for a comprehensive global plan that actually solves the climate crisis. Our Choice will answer that call.”

Our Choice will be produced locally with 100 per cent recycled paper. All proceeds from the book will be donated to the Alliance for Climate Protect, a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the climate crisis and how to solve it.

An Inconvenient Truth stirred much debate and controversy when it was released in 2006, winning Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. Hopefully Our Choice can spark much needed action on the crisis of climate change.
