Al Gore Writes Book On Climate Change

Environmental activist and former Vice President Al Gore plans to release a new book, "Our Choice," in November of 2009.

The book will "answer the call" for "urgent action" on a "comprehensive global plan that actually solves the climate crisis," according to a press release.

Gore hopes that the book will "unquestionably inspire and rally those ready to fight for solutions that were deemed impossible only a short time ago." He plans to lay out the conclusions he has reached after attending a number of "Solutions Summits" focused on the climate attended by policy experts, scientists and engineers.

In keeping with the theme of sustainability, "Our Choice" will be printed by Rodale Inc. Publishers on 100% recycled paper with locally produced and sourced editions and low VOC inks; it will also be carbon neutral. The former vice president and his wife Tipper will donate all of the book's proceeds to the Alliance for Climate Protection, as they did with their popular film, "An Inconvenient Truth."
