Editorial Reviews

Michiko Kakutani
… as a user-friendly introduction to global warming and a succinct summary of many of the central arguments laid out in those other volumes, An Inconvenient Truth is lucid, harrowing and bluntly effective.
— The New York Times
Warren Bass
Al Gore may have missed his calling: He would have made a fine science writer. The former vice president's new book -- a movie tie-in entitled An Inconvenient Truth, like the film hitting screens in New York and Los Angeles this week -- shows an impressive talent for explanatory journalism. Based on a slide show that Gore has been perfecting on his Mac laptop for years, this handsome volume doesn't pack quite the same punch as the celluloid version, but it's still very effective: a book on global warming that's downright chilling.
— The Washington Post

    More hype than facts!

    For those already buying into the mass hysteria of the Global warming agenda, this book preaches to the choir well! And it is remarkably clear and well-written, which is why Gore continues to go from event to event in those gas-guzzlin' SUV's, preaching his "GW gospel" to thousands and thousands.

    Already the holes are starting to crack....and in 25 years, people will look back on this book as laughable. Just like we look back on people in the early 1970's who were saying the earth is heading for an "ice age" (or close to it) by the year 2000.

    The great thing about time is it shows how bogus some of these claims will prove to be. These people are interested more in power politics and controlling our lives, and they'll use the "poor ole' polar bear" sob stories to the best of their ability to convince us.

    Don't buy into the hype...and save your money on a book. Besides....far too many trees had to be cut down to print these books anyhow!!!

    A total fabrication.

    This book is void of any scientific data, new data has repuded most of the content. Purely fictional.

    Pointless and Untrue

    The sky is falling! The sky is falling! It's easy to construct an agenda-driven book based on nothing more than assumptions and unproven scenarios. Check the weather pattern folks, we are actually in a cooling period. The weatherman can hardly tell whether or not it's going to rain tomorrow, but based on our....what....110 years of weather records we know, without a doubt, that we are the reason for the earth's current climate and that any natural increase in temperature is a product of humans. Yet, records show that the earth has always fluctuated. Even during the industrial revolution, when our output was at one of its highest levels, we were in a cooling period. This book, and the movie, is garbage. There are so many flaws and inconsistencies it is almost humorous. Science has proven that it is wrong 100 times over. To have students watching this is an insult to the (socailist-driven) school system. And, to give Al Gore....who is no more than a puppet that apparently invented the Internet....one of the world's grandest prizes is an insult to anybody that has ever won the Nobel Peace Prize. A slap in the face to winners of the past, present, and future.

    Do not buy this book. Do some real research on your own. Educate yourself, and stay away from the KoolAid. Did you know one of the polar ice cap scenes was actually a clip from the movie 'Day After Tomorrow.' This is a joke. It should be taken as such.

    Global Warming?

    Gore makes a compelling argument. Would have actually been believable if he had left out the politics.

    Interesting read

    I always wondered who was right on global warming. after reviewing the pictures and reading this book I now see that there is change coming. No matter who or why, I now believe it is changing and changing fast. Very easy and interesting to read. Lots of supporting pictures of before and after.

    A response to conservative book reviewers

    This book is a great assest to people that dont have the time or attention span to sit down and learn the nuts and bolts about the science behind global warming. This book serves a purpose as a way to get across the dire message that yes, there is something wrong with the planet at this time and hopefully this book will be the starting point for interested people to look further into global warming and see what they can do about it. No, global warming is not disputed (by any scientists, look it up...). There is no disputed published results in any academic journals that argue against global warming. Yes, weather patterns do go through cyclic changes. Unfortunately thats not the point and a great way for uber conservatives to distract from the hard facts and science of it all. The POINT is that there has been no such change in HISTORY that shows such a drastic change in weather patterns and storm severity. I hope that people that bash this book would at least do their homework and look into the science of global warming before using their baseless claim to turn people away from the 'inconvient' truth :' enjoy the book. its a good read and has excellent pictures. do your part and help to save our planet!
