Yes there are some facts in this book, but you couldn't verify it. Just like any other fiction novel, using emotions instead of "truths," this book is a scam with no bibliography, no footnotes, no citations, and consequently this fanatical politico tries to pull the wool over our eyes.

Science has disproven many of Gore's hysterical claims. This definitely isn't a science book, it's a scam to take money from corporations while Gore lines his pockets with hefty speaking fees and book royalties.

Incidentally, there's no such thing as "settled science," science is always searching for the truth, it's never settled and that's what makes it science! So, you won't find science here, but you will discover a healthy dose of propaganda. The author doesn't have any inclination to be anything but closed-minded, deceptive, and alarmist!

I gave this 5 stars because it is a gorgeous book, well written, with convincing research. However, I caution parents that the data is a bit alarming and may give sensitive children nightmares. Ice is melting in mountains and near the poles, and ocean levels will rise and whole cultures will have water shortages.

Many adults find Gore's data distasteful. They do not want to think about climate trends that may doom our descendants, maybe even ourselves or our children. They want to live in the happy world that they remember from childhood. And they hate the idea that our greatest enemy may be our selves.

I suspect that many of the folks who gave negative reviews did not really read the book carefully, perhaps not at all. It does not take long to read though - very understandable, lots of photos and other graphics.

This book is suitable for many adults - those who struggle with small print, for instance, and those with limited time who want to read something that is important but not too complex. Young people will also benefit from it as long as they do not feel helpless to change things.

I bought this book in hopes of gaining some insight into the source of all the global warming fuss. (They don't hand out Nobel prizes for nothing, I thought.) It was an easy read, presenting the major points of his argument very clearly. But I was also looking for the background data, or at least some references to the data sources. I was amazed to find no footnotes and no bibliography. Michael Crichton provided more research background in his novel 'State of Fear.'

Excellent book for the general public. Puts the problem in physical terms. Goes for visuals rather than prose which makes the ideas much more widely accessible.

I like this book becuase it has tuaght me a lot about being aware of the things that are happening around the world. This book explains global warming in depth and how everything we do has an effect on our environment and community. I love all the pictures inside! This is definitely a cool book to read to bring out environmental awareness.

Al Gore is using scare tactics to further his own interests, while pouring CO2 into the atmosphere with his lavish lifestyle. Concurrently, he is telling the rest of the world to clean up their act. Some of the photos are good even though the captions are misleading.
