Al Gore will pen a solutions-focused sequel
Al Gore is writing another book — and you can bet that climate change is shakin’ in its boots. The Path to Survival, a solutions-focused sequel to the groundbreaking Inconvenient Truth, is slated to hit shelves on Earth Day 2008. (Where was that impeccable timing when you were campaigning, Al?) Billed as “part scientific manual, part exposé, part visionary call for a new planet-wide political movement,” the book will spell out climate-helpful steps for both individuals and governments to take. It will also explain how “bold choices now to protect our environment will also create new jobs, propel sustainable economic improvements, and inspire a new generation to tackle our most challenging issues with moral leadership,” according to a not-so-subtle statement from publisher Rodale. There are not yet plans to turn the sequel into a movie, but, nonetheless, we’ve already bought our tickets.
