Former Vice President Al Gore's New York Times #1 bestselling book is a daring call to action, exposing the shocking reality of how humankind has aided in the destruction of our planet and the future we face if we do not take action to stop global warming. Now, Viking has adapted this book for the most important audience of all: today's youth, who have no choice but to confront this climate crisis head-on.

Dramatic full-color photos, illustrations, and graphs combine with Gore's effective and clear writing to explain global warming in very real terms: what it is, what causes it, and what will happen if we continue to ignore it. An Inconvenient Truth will change the way young people understand global warming and hopefully inspire them to help change the course of history.

I am not going to state that the previous comment is garbage, but list a series of websites that explain the failings of Mr. Gore's wild theories. Even if you don't like the sources (and especially considering that science is not uniform in its conclusions), at least give them the benefit of the doubt and listen to their arguments and facts: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker/2007/10/an_inconvenient_truth_for_al_g_1.html; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU8jyz9Acy0; http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/monckton/goreerrors.html; http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2007/10/09/court-identifies-eleven-inaccuracies-al-gore-s-inconvenient-truth; http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/environment/gore.html

Simply put, a great amount of the material in this book has been debunked. It is not a reliable source for information on the subject, and I would not recommend that anyone read this.

Most scientists now agree with what this book says. Global warming is happening and has been caused by man.

(Challenge to redban: provide proof to back up your absurd numbers, please. By the way, cavemen don't exist.) Science is not consensus, yet, after so much being proved against Mr. Gore’s “global warming” alarmist hysteria, I was surprised to find this book in a reading list. Also, one must consider the fact that Mr. Gore is NOT a scientist, but a mere ex-politician, with no formal scientific training or methodology. Not for serious readers, who believe in science first. It is interesting of note the fact that Mr. Gore belongs to the political side that discards Judeo/Christian faith as pure ignorance since it can’t be proven by science, yet embraces anthropogenic “global warming,” something many scientists have proven does not exist (refer to "Similar Titles" for more info). “Official British Court Finds 11 Inaccuracies in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, Labels It As Political Propaganda”: http://scottthong.wordpress.com/2007/10/10/official-british-court-finds-11-inaccuracies-in-al-gores-an-inconvenient-truth-labels-it-as-political-propaganda/
