An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warmingby Albert Gore
Synopses & Reviews
Former Vice President Al Gore's New York Times #1 bestselling book is a daring call to action, exposing the shocking reality of how humankind has aided in the destruction of our planet and the future we face if we do not take action to stop global warming. Now, Viking has adapted this book for the most important audience of all: today's youth, who have no choice but to confront this climate crisis head-on.
Dramatic full-color photos, illustrations, and graphs combine with Gore's effective and clear writing to explain global warming in very real terms: what it is, what causes it, and what will happen if we continue to ignore it. An Inconvenient Truth will change the way young people understand global warming and hopefully inspire them to help change the course of history.
"[F]ew, if any, books for youth offer such a dynamic look at the climate issues threatening our Earth." -Booklist, starred review
"Multiple copies should be in every school and library." -Kirkus, starred review
A highly provocative, mindbending, beautifully designed, and visionary look at the landscape of our rapidly evolving digital era.
