Gore penning new climate change book

The former vice president is set to release 'Our Choice' in November.

The former vice president is set to release 'Our Choice' in November.

(CNN) – Al Gore said Tuesday he's writing another book on global warming policies and solutions.

The former vice president is set to release "Our Choice" in November. Gore's latest read will be a followup to his 2006 bestseller "An Inconvenient Truth," serving as a "blueprint" providing solutions to the climate crisis.

"'An Inconvenient Truth' reached millions of people with the message that the climate crisis is threatening the future of human civilization and that it must and can be solved," Gore said in a statement. "Now that the need for urgent action is even clearer with the alarming new findings of the last three years, it is time for a comprehensive global plan that actually solves the climate crisis. 'Our Choice' will answer that call."

As he did with the earnings from "An Inconvenient Truth," Gore said he will will donate all the proceeds from the eco-friendly book to his foundation, the Alliance for Climate Protection.

    The title of the book ought to be The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!

    Gore, why don't you go run in circles, screaming and shouting, somewhere else? We're tired of you here.

    I am very interested he'll include the big fact that eating meat is a major contributor of greenhouse gases, moreso than cars. A carnivorous eating environmentalist is somewhat of an oxymoron.

    Al Gore needs to get his head out of the sand in his refusal to believe that a great percentage of people question the science of global warming. He is not doing anyone any favors by refusing to engage and debate this gigantic skeptical (stupid) audience.

    I used to consider Al Gore a personal hero. Now I consider him an over-fed, over-indulged coward. His electric bill is pretty pathetic as well.

    Stop patting yourself on the back and go make use of yourself, Al. Get on a treadmill while you're at it.

    Al, stop with your Global Warming and sheit, earth is not warming up, it is COOLING OFF. Ice caps are not melting they're growing. You're making millions with your global warming myth, you even fooled the Church of England to invest $243 millions with your myth.

    Gore: A hypocrite if there ever was one.

    He adds more pollution and consumes more energy then 50 people combined. He needs to do what he say's, and say what he does.

    I'm tired of his: "Do as I say, not as I do" rhetoric.

    "Al. That's not acid rain — you're making the planet cry."

    I guess he plans on winning a few more Nobel Peace Prizes. I wonder how much of a change Gore would've made on the climate if he was the president.

    Hey Al, are you going to follow Jonathon Porrit (*advisor to Gordon Brown – UK) we must cut our population in half to have a sustainable and conducive for your global warming myth. Shall we start shooting illegal aliens in this country now and killing all children?

    An inconvenient truth is Gore himself and how much energy his personal house uses and his personal flying habits. Too bad he is all talk and people actually listen to this hypocrite.

    Gore is still peddling the Big Lie. Adolf would be proud.

    Gore will go down in history as one of the most important and visionary leaders of all time. Shirt-sighted, selfish individuals governed by political rhetoric start spewing your venow in 3...2...1...

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, wonder if he'll talk about his private jet which adds to global warming. Or, how about those large utility bills he gets every month from that very large house he lives in. And, that's just a few things he does to add to global warming.

    Who's going to pay for this one? Last time he used government money to fly around the world, take pictures from helicopters and pen the script while he was still vice president. He's a mooch and a nut... forget him.

    Wow...first we had Rev. Al Sharpton, now we have Rev. Al Gore...who'da thunk it?

    Global Warming is turning into the new religion of the Left.

    When will Gore ACTUALLY face his critics (world scientists who debunk Gore's fairytale)?

    I guess that would be too much of an inconvenient truth for Al??

    can al gore write?
    he can't read.

    he failed divinity school.

    But he won't debate any credible people that disagree with him. Global Warming is the new religion and Al Gore is the new Pope. You'd better not disagree or you might find yourself as a target of the New Inquisition.
