Our Choice: How We Can Solve the Climate Crisis (Young Readers Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his environmental work, Vice President Al Gore illuminates the real solutions to the climate crisis and describes a comprehensive global strategy to implement them urgently.

Our Choice will pick up where An Inconvenient Truth left off and provide a blueprint for solving the global climate crisis and drawing on Mr. Gore's 40 years of experience as a student, policymaker, author, filmmaker, entrepreneur, and activist.

Our Choice is an inspiring call to action for those ready to fight for solutions that really work — including some bold initiatives that were deemed impossible only a short time ago but are now gaining support around the world. Since the publication of the New York Times bestseller An Inconvenient Truth, Mr. Gore has led more

than 30 Solutions Summits with top scientists, engineers, and policy experts to examine every solution to the climate crisis in depth and detail. Our Choice draws on conclusions developed through those summits as well as on extensive independent research, describing how the bold choices necessary to save the earth's climate should also be the foundations of policies worldwide to create new jobs and stimulate sustainable economic progress.

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to his groundbreaking AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, former Vice President Al Gore explores the causes of the current climate crisis and what we can do to help solve it. In full color, with photographs, graphics, and illustrations throughout.
