An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It

by Al Gore
£14.99   paperback  Bloomsbury Publishing (2006)

An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It by Al Gore

"Our climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly - and has become a true planetary emergency. The Chinese expression for crisis consists of two characters. The first is a symbol for danger; the second is a symbol for opportunity. In order to face down the danger that is stalking us and move through it, we first have to recognise that we are facing a crisis. So why is it that our leaders seem not to hear such clarion warnings? Are they resisting the truth because they know that the moment they acknowledge it, they will face a moral imperative to act? Is it simply more convenient to ignore the warnings?
 
Perhaps inconvenient truths do not go away just because they are not seen. Indeed, when they are responded to, their significance doesn't diminish; it grows."
(Al Gore)
"This frightening, galvanizing book will convince plenty of readers that earth genuinely does hang in the balance."
(Washington Post)
