Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The title says it all: our choices determine the earth’s future, and in this young readers’ edition of his similarly titled adult book, Gore speaks straight to the generation that will tackle those decisions. As in his young readers’ edition of An Inconvenient Truth (2007), Gore once again presents a holistic call for action: “We have to change our laws, we have to change the way we do business, and we have to change the way we think.” Gore points to the integral role of youth in the civil-rights movement and challenges his young audience to act on a similar scale, raise awareness of environmental issues, and demand that current lawmakers and executives adopt dramatic, earth-friendly practices. As in the adult edition, the substantive chapters are filled with color photos and diagrams that illustrate the cogent, persuasive text. As in An Inconvenient Truth, the lack of source notes is disappointing. Still, the passionate, informed coverage of environmental issues, from alternative fuel technologies to political obstacles in Washington, makes this an invaluable resource for school and public libraries. Grades 6-9. --Gillian Engberg

Review

"This colorful, well-designed volume presents the climate crisis in an easy-to-understand format." --VOYA

Gore spends the majority of his time as chairman of The Climate Reality Project, a non-profit devoted to solving the Climate Crisis.

Gore was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976, 1978, 1980 and 1982 and the U.S. Senate in 1984 and 1990. He was inaugurated as the forty-fifth Vice President of the United States on January 20, 1993, and served eight years. During the Administration, Gore was a central member of President Clinton's economic team. He served as President of the Senate, a Cabinet member, a member of the National Security Council and as the leader of a wide range of Administration initiatives.

He is the author of the bestsellers Earth in the Balance, An Inconvenient Truth, The Assault on Reason, and Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis. He is the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary and is the co-recipient, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for "informing the world of the dangers posed by climate change."

I mistakenly purchased this young reader's edition after blindly accepting it from the Border's clerk, who had not heard of VP Al Gore! This book is not as haunting as An Inconvenient Truth, which was a wake-up call. This one is the action plan. The brilliance of VP Gore's prose lies in the simplicity of the language. The language is upper grade school level, but the concept is boundless. The concept of global warming and its potential solutions can be so abstract when explained by most pedantic university professors. However Gore lays it out as if we could attack the problem foot forward, which is exactly what we have to during this administration

As you can see, I screwed up! Other than it taking a longgggg time to receive - it was ordered about two weeks before Christmas, did not get it until a week after Xmas, my friend is enjoying it - he jokes he thinks in retrospect that the "adult" version would not have been as easy to understand!!

Fantastic book! Simply explaining very complex issues which have been deliberately clouded by those who are opposed to the changes needed.

Great easy to understand book that introduces you to solutions to reduce effect of anthropogenic climate change. Don't be fooled by 1star commenters, they didn't read the book, only black listed because don't like AL Gore. Shame on you, and may God Bless and Keep You because your children and their children will not.

I thought it was a normal book, but being a young readers edition i was initially a bit miffed, then i took a look at the description and discovered it clearly written!
I am content with everything, A very efficient delivery period and would buy from the US again
