our choice, al gore, climate changeExpect to see a lot more of Al Gore in the media over the next couple weeks.

The Nobel Prize winner and Former VP is about to release a new book on the environment titled “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis” On sale November 3rd, it was created by Gore a follow-up to his 2006 book “An Inconvenient Truth”. Whereas that one dealt with explaining what climate change is and how it will impact us, “Choice” is more about the solutions we can pursue to prevent irreversible damage to our planet. It’s also meant to inspire others to take action; unlike “Truth” which made me want to reconsider having children.

“[This book] is meant to depoliticize the issue as much as possible and inspire readers to take action—not only on an individual basis but as participants in the political processes by which every country, and the world as a whole, makes the choice that now confronts us,” he writes in the forward.

In terms of green cred, it comes fully loaded: 100% recycled paper, locally produced and sourced editions, low VOC inks, carbon neutral, and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Alliance for Climate Protection. To publicize the launch, Gore will appear on The David Letterman Show next Tuesday night to discuss the book in a bit more detail.

And finally, don’t be surprised if this one is turned into a film as well. I’m sure there’s a tiny bit of room left on the mantle for another Oscar.

    Now, if he would just speak up about animal agriculture…

    And will the “Truth” finally mention the elephant in the room–i.e., Going vegan is the #1 way to save the planet. All the energy-efficient lightbulbs and carbon credits cannot even come close. Of course it’s doubtful that burger loving Gore will mention this inconvenient fact…

    Hey All. Lord Monckton has been calling you out for years now. Why won’t you debate him… is it because he’ll eviscerate you? Your eco lies are showing.

    • Big G

      You all know why he won’t debate. The debate is over, remember? And if the debate is over then it would prove him wrong to even start it up again. And if he started the debate over again, he would actually have to prove his points with science. And if he had to prove his points with science, he would lose, badly.

    go Vegan?

    Mankind did not spend millennia clawing its way to the top of the food chain to eat leaves.
    Even if Global warming was real and not a socialist hoax, there would not be one chance in hell I would sink that low.

    • Whoever…

      You actually have just showed you level of evolution – very low!!

      “Mankind did not spend millennia clawing its way to the top of the food chain to eat leaves.”

      That’s such an absurdity that I’m not even going to comment on that. We’re at the top of the food chain? I would like to see you in the middle of a jungle – you’d soon realize we’re not at the top of anything.

      We’re not superior to any species on this planet. What we are is the most arrogant, cruel and destructive species.

      Until we realize that and start behaving more ethically and responsibly, we’ll never evolve to the next level – call it spiritual evolution, awakening of the conscious, whatever…

      If you are willing to think outside the ‘box’, and if you wish to open your eyes to the truth behind the animal industry and truly understand why most of us become vegan, check out:

      Oh and we do not eat ‘leaves’. Our diet is healthier, tastier and more varied than the meat-based diet…

      • Whoever…

        “you level of evolution”

        Sorry, I meant “youR level of evolution”

      • Big G

        Oh, I don’t know about that. Nothing cures a veggie burger quicker than a good old New York strip steak with a chaser of freshly cooked lobster.

        Besides, are we talking about your ethics or my ethics? Or are you one of those push button enviros who can be predicted to say what you just said, and are thus food for plenty of mockery?

  • Tim

    The third paragraph contains just one sentence, but taht sentence packs a lot of stupidity. How anyone past 3rd grade could write that, other than as a joke, is beyond me.

  • Mike

    I’m partly on board with the vegan thing. I only eat meat from animals that are herbivorous.

  • EJ

    Do you eat chicken, pork and fish? They are all omnivores.

    Al Gore is a fraud. The Vlostoc ice cores show the Earth warms first and then roughly 800 years later CO2 levels rise. This is because when the oceans warm they release CO2 they stored during cooler periods. The Sun is the furnace of our solar system, to deny that makes you, yes, a denier. Over the past decade we have seen NO WARMING. Yet CO2 levels continue to rise. If the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming were true, this would not have happened. You see, alarmists refuse to use the scientific method when it comes to their precious theory. The scientific method dictates that scientists try and DISPROVE a theory to validate said theory. Instead, these frauds have relied on “verification” which they will try and tell you is the same thing, it is not. So far these geniuses have produced 20 different climate models giving virtually 20 different scenarios, the only congruent assertion is a warming planet. What is most unfortuneate for these folks is that not 1 in 20 of these models has ever predicted anything with any sort of accuracy. Not 1 predicted our current climate. If the science is settled, why do we have 20 different models and why are they all wrong? If Al Gore was an honest man, he would welcome debate. After all, he claims the science is settled, so should be an easy win. Right? The current cooling trend is predicted to last another 20 years, I can’t wait to see how they try and spin this for the next 2 decades.

    “The cooling after 1940 shows that CO2 does not cause warming
    Not true. The world did cool from 1940 to 1970, largely because the release of aerosols into the atmosphere, resulting from dirty industrial activities and warfare, scattered light from the Sun and reflected its heat back into space. There was also a large volcanic eruption at Mount Agung in 1963 that cooled things down by 0.5 ºC.

    The lower atmosphere is cooling, not warming
    Not true. The apparent cooling was caused by errors in the way satellite data was collected and inaccurate data from weather balloons. More recent data reveals that it is warming as expected.” quotes from Guy Dauncey’s “The Climate Challange: 101 Solutions to Global Warming” How to Talk to a Climate Denier.

    Is Al Gore writing science fiction again?
