Climate Change, Al Gore and “An Inconvenient Truth”
As virtually all scientists, most of the public and increasingly the media have come to understand that the Earth's climate is perilously threatened, few have captured the gravity of the situation and lead as effectively as Al Gore – a climate hero of long-standing – who is on a veritable one man climate crusade.
The soon to be released An Inconvenient Truth documentary shows Al Gore speaking powerfully and truthfully armed only with a powerpoint presentation. The movie “eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. The film is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry.”
This same spirit of inspired leadership is on display in Al Gore's recent essay in Vanity Fair entitled The Moment of Truth. He states that the “climate crisis is, indeed, extremely dangerous, but it also presents unprecedented opportunities.” Mr. Gore continues in stirring prose to highlight the dimensions of the problem and the potential for its solution to unite humanity to face this moral, ethical, and spiritual challenge.
