Al Gore is perhaps the best know American politicians that people still respect around the world What he said and wrote in 1992 is not only proven today but we find that he underestimated the severity of the affects on this world In this new book he demonstrates using the most simplistic method of cause and effect that it is used today in 5th and 6 grade classrooms He clearly demonstrates that the only time that our earth has seen this kind of die off we are experiencing today was 65 million years ago And again he explains the difference between normal long term global warming that takes thousand of years, and the fifty to one hundred year time span that we have now Volcanic activity impacts our world for only a few years What he is saying is that most species will not have enough time to move to favorable environments, that krill the base of the ocean food chain are no longer abundant as our ice shelves disappear And conservatives still make fun of him Un bloody believable I don t even know what to say about this exceptAl Gore owns a jet BOOK ♓ An inconvenient truth ♪ An Inconvenient Truth Gore S Groundbreaking, Battle Cry Of A Follow Up To The Bestselling Earth In The Balance Is Being Published To Tie In With A Documentary Film Of The Same Name Both The Book And Film Were Inspired By A Series Of Multimedia Presentations On Global Warming That Gore Created And Delivers To Groups Around The World With This Book, Gore, Who Is One Of Our Environmental Heroes And A Leading Expert Brings Together Leading Edge Research From Top Scientists Around The World Photographs, Charts, And Other Illustrations And Personal Anecdotes And Observations To Document The Fast Pace And Wide Scope Of Global Warming He Presents, With Alarming Clarity And Conclusiveness And With Humor, Too That The Fact Of Global Warming Is Not In Question And That Its Consequences For The World We Live In Will Be Disastrous If Left Unchecked This Riveting New Book Written In An Accessible, Entertaining Style Will Open The Eyes Of Even The Most Skeptical American Presidents, Deportations, and Human Rights Violations Battle Cry Of A Follow Up To The Bestselling Earth In The Balance Is Being Published To Tie In With A Documentary Film Of The Same Name Both The Book And Film Were Inspired By A Series Of Multimedia Presentations On Global Warming That Gore Created And Delivers To Groups Around The World With This Book Rediscovering Our Galaxy (Iau S334) Gore When Movements Become Parties Who Is One Of Our Environmental Heroes And A Leading Expert Brings Together Leading Edge Research From Top Scientists Around The World Photographs Gekka Mugentan, Vol. 6 Charts Illegal Affairs And Other Illustrations And Personal Anecdotes And Observations To Document The Fast Pace And Wide Scope Of Global Warming He Presents 21 Short Plays With Alarming Clarity And Conclusiveness And With Humor Seven Indicators That Move Markets Too That The Fact Of Global Warming Is Not In Question And That Its Consequences For The World We Live In Will Be Disastrous If Left Unchecked This Riveting New Book Written In An Accessible Angel of Sudden Hill Entertaining Style Will Open The Eyes Of Even The Most Skeptical UGH Not much to say If you like situation ethics, flawed logic and reading, and quasi science this is your read. Gore does a fantastic job at coming in so far beyond what even the closest UN, private industry, and government studies do that one must laughingly dismiss his arguments almost outright Take for example his argument on CFL compact fluorescent lightbulbs and how much polution can be saved Australia has just completed a law that mandates all citizens and businesses must have CFL s installed by 2010 This law is supposed to save Australia some 800,000 cubic tons of CO2 over the next several years That number is huge but it leaves out the fact that it only changes Australia s output of CO2 by.2 percent Forcing millions of people to do what others demand for that type of gain is not efficient.I myself do use CFL s because in the long run they save money and put less lead and mercury in landfills Would I mandate that others do the same Nope Another of Al s happy little daydreams is ocean level increases in days to come Al shows in the movie that ocean levels will increase by 240 inches Sounds amazing Suppose I should buy property in Lancaster, CA or Bakersfield, CA Both should be worth millions and millions once the water reaches their city borders.What Gore and so many sheep don t do is compare this to other studies that are out there Al is 17 times higher in his predictions than the UN International Panel on Climate Control He is many times higher than other scientists that claim that the UN study is too conservative So even the liberal estimates from scientists that dispute the UN study are 4 5 times lower than Al s representation of the figures.What is his fascination with CO2 when there are other greenhouse gases that are much worse for the environment The cattle industry worldwide puts out much greenhouse pollution than the entire transportation sector does But Al conveniently leaves that out as well.I agree that there are things that we can do to help with environmental issues Lying about them to get political and monetary gain is not one of them Yes, I am accusing Gore of lying about this to give a worst case scenario to activate so many sheep out of fear All this coming from a man that has done almost nothing to change his lifestyle to conform with his preaching Why does he fly a personal jet when he does speaking engagements Why does he live in a mansion that consumes the energy needed to provide for 20 middle class homes Why does he go anywhere by limo Why doesn t he become a Vegan to reduce cattle demand and therefore reduce methane emissions Why doesn t he do instead of complain Once again we have a egotistical politician that wants to do anything to stay in a position of power at the cost of labor and sacrifice done by the average American. My first degree was in science and I continue to have an abiding interest in it I regularly read articles and books related to the sciences My biggest problem with this book is that the science is embarassingly absent Subtracting politics and just looking at the so called science this book bases its premises on have been found to be either meritless or skewed I soldily believe we DO need to care for this planet but please lets base our discussions on facts, not computer models that aren t even accurate enough to predict the weather a week out let alone years or decades. I enjoyed reading Mr Gore s slide show about global warming, the causes, and seeing the before and after pictures of various parts of the world was truly amazing I would like to have seen a month with the years that the pictures were taken, though I thought the information was presented in a clear, concise manner I learned a lot about global warming The presentation clearly shows we have a problem and if we don t wake up real quick and do something about the planet we will be leaving a mess for our future generations.This is a quick book to read, a lot of full color before and after pictures of various parts of the world, satellite imagery, etc There are a few short stories about Mr Gore s life when he was younger, with his wife as newlywed s, about his dad Al Gore, Sr , the accident involving his son when he was young and I enjoyed reading them There is a section involving hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones with lots of pictures and information showing how the warmer oceans are generating powerful and frequent storms Pictures explaining the ocean currents, heavy salt in the Atlantic that acts as a pump now slowing down, corral reefs, ice caps on mountains before and after , homes up north built on permafrost now melted Extinction At the end, there are suggestions and websites for alternative sources of energy Clearly, we have the ability to use the alternative energy sources wind, hydro, geothermal, corn oil, sewage, etc and we need to encourage our leaders to shift to these before it is too late.Numerous quotes by Winston Churchill and Mark Twain that I enjoyed Here s one Denial ain t just a river in Egypt by Mark Twain The CO2 is not the cause of for global warming sorry, if that s inconvenient.With Ice Growing At Both Poles, Global Warming Theories Implodein Just to report he s been in Oporto for 2 cups of Porto wine and a 1 hour talk on his specialty global emergency, beware view spoiler to be read as CATASTROPHIC PREDICTIONS , or CLIMATE DOOM To be refuted with YOU SAID ARCTIC TO BE GONE IN 5 YEARS COMPLETELY ICE FREE THAT DIDN T HAPPEN hide spoiler The Importance of being InconvenientA good test of truth is to see if an idea opinion economic suggestion is an Inconvenient Truth , especially if it is inconvenient for the speaker If it is not, chances are that the expounder is just playing to his own and his audience s biases Because economic and social phenomena are so forbidding, or at least so seem, and because they yield few hard tests of what exists and what does not, they afford to the individual a luxury not given by physical phenomena Within a considerable range, he is permit ted to believe what he pleases He may hold whatever view of this world he finds most agreeable or otherwise to his taste.Numerous factors contribute to the acceptability of ideas To a very large extent, of course, we associate truth with convenience with what most closely accords with self interest and personal well being or promises best to avoid awkward effort or unwelcome dislocation of life John Kenneth Galbraith, commenting on Conventional Wisdom Earlier Review Not as well compiled as the 2006 Documentary, but still very exhaustive and informative Does get repetitive and preachy at times and is an almost exclusively US oriented book, but inspite of all that this is still a must read for the concerned. I ve just finished reading Al Gore s book on climate change, and I have to say that I was not particularly impressed I hadn t expected a great piece of literature, and I wasn t wrong But I m not going to pick holes Gore s turgid prose style though I do wonder if the text was even looked at by an editor My problem is with Gore s representation of the scientific data on global warming.It s clear that the temperature of the earth has been increasing in recent decades And it s also clear that human activities, in particular the production of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, have contributed to this increase in temperature It is not entirely clear how much of this change in temperature can be attributed to human activity Gore however, never mentions that natural, non anthropogenic factors may contributing to climate change He leaves the reader with the impression that the increase in global temperature is entirely anthropogenic see pages 66 and 67, for example.This is not the scientific consensus The scientific consensus, as cited in Naomi Oreskes survey study mentioned approvingly by Gore , is Human activities are modifying the concentration of atmospheric constituents that absorb or scatter radiant energy M ost of the observed warming over the last 50 years is likely to have been due to the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations So, not all but most climate change is attributable to human causes A substantial portion may well be due to natural causes That s not entirely surprising given that there were substantial shifts in global climate well before the appearance of mammals, let alone Homo sapiens I think this is an important distinction, and one that Gore should not have omitted.Don t get me wrong, I m generally in agreement with taking steps to ameliorate climate change People who buy Porsche SUVs are not especially bright tasteless idiots who drives off the lot with a Cayenne rather than a Boxster Counter climatic air conditioning the thermostat set to Fires of Hell in winter and Everest Base Camp in summer is a massive waste of energy Quite apart from their effects on climate change these types of wasteful energy use offend my sense of frugality, and also result in old fashioned environmental pollution.But I do think that if we are ever to take significant steps toward ending or slowing climate change an honest accounting of the scientific evidence is necessary And I don t think An Inconvenient Truth provides that.Finally, a quick note to Al New Zealand isn t part of Australia can you fix up page 251 in the second edition Thanks.
