Al Gore tackles climate crisis in new book

Latest update : 2009-03-25

Nobel laureate and former US vice-president Al Gore will be proposing solutions to the world's climate problems in his new book "Our Choice". He published an outline of the problems the planet is facing in his 2006 book "An Inconvenient Truth".

AFP - Former vice president and Nobel laureate Al Gore Wednesday announced the November release of "Our Choice," his new book on climate change that proposes solutions to global warming and our present climate crisis.
  
The follow-up to Gore's first book in 2006 on global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth," will be published on recycled paper by Rodale Books.
  
"An Inconvenient Truth reached millions of people with the message that the climate crisis is threatening the future of human civilization and that it must and can be solved," Gore said in a statement.  
  
"Now that the need for urgent action is even clearer with the alarming new findings of the last three years, it is time for a comprehensive global plan that actually solves the climate crisis. 'Our Choice' will answer that call," he added.
  
Gore's first book led to a documentary, equally titled "An Inconvenient Truth," that won him an Oscar in 2007 and the Nobel Peace Prize that same year he shared with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
  
"Our Choice" will go on sale November 3.
