Will There Be A Movie This Time?
Al Gore has just announced a new book titled Our Choice that will be a kind of sequel to An Inconvenient Truth. "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."A Green Book, Literally
100% of the profits will be donated to the Alliance for Climate Protection, the book will be printed on 100% recycled paper, have locally produced and sourced editions, use low VOC inks, and will be carbon neutral (good green moves, but also probably trying to shield himself from criticism since he's a high-profile target).
At the time of An Inconvenient Truth's release, we thought that what was missing was solutions. It's a good thing that he's rectifying that problem, though it's hard to know if this new book will reach as many people as the movie (probably not), but maybe they'll also make a movie out of it (are you listening to this Davis Guggenheim?).
You can read the whole thing on Al's Journal.
