An Inconvenient Sequel - Al Gore
An Inconvenient Sequel
The Truth to Power
Al GoreMacmillan, RRP $39.99, Trade Paperback
The follow up to Vice President Al Gore’s #1 New York Times bestselling book on climate change, published to coincide with the release of his new documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel.
Vice President Gore, a leading expert on climate change, brings together cutting-edge research from top scientists around the world, approximately 200 photographs and illustrations to visually articulate the subject matter; 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 hope and humour, too) that the fact of global climate change is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be assuredly disastrous if left unchecked. This new book shows an impassioned Gore travelling around the globe to tell the story of change in the making. He connects the dots of Zika, flooding and other natural disasters we’ve lived through the last 10+ years and much more.
The book also offers a comprehensive how to guide on exactly how we can change the course of fate. With concrete, actionable advice on topics ranging from how to run for office to how to talk to your children about climate change, An Inconvenient Sequel will empower you to make a difference and lets you know how exactly to do it.
When Gore’s first documentary and book took us through the technical aspects of climate change, the second documentary is a gripping, narrative journey that leaves you filled with hope and the urge to take action immediately. This book captures the same essence and it is a must-have for everyone who cares deeply about our planet.
