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.

    ...cuz he's soooo smart and he knows soooo much and all you dummies are falling for it (while he grows richer and fatter and demands more and more of the masses. he's a hypocrite, sure, but that's fine in the democratic party, so no worries.)

    Gee – the big blow hard's mansion uses more energy in 1 day than I do in 1 year!! So much for global warming – he needs to step up to the plate and get his own house in order. All the fools that believe him, ha, 677 scientists can't be wrong! Big Al the blowhard!!

    Well what else is he going to do but tell others how to live? He'll fly all over the world burning more jet fuel than I will my entire lifetime promoting this book, then go back to his mansion which uses 10 times more energy than my home.

    Maybe he will explain how (ironically) all of the big global warming events this winter were snowed out. Or maybe why we are supposed to already be 30 feet under water but aren't. Perhaps he'll explain how carbon levels LAG changes in the Earth's temperature. He should probably also expound on the facts that the sun's activity and volcanic activity have far more to do with global warming than anything mankind could ever do. His last chapter should be devoted to why his house uses 20 times the energy of the average household, how he flies around the globe in his private jet, why the rest of us need to lose weight to keep our carbon emissions down and how his acolytes in the UK defend their position that population reduction is the answer.

    Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is full of lies and by the looks of these comments, so far, the people are finally catching on. Too bad it the lies were funneled to our school children in an effort to scare the anything but green out of them.

    You Go, Al!!!!
    It is hard to believe so many people don't understand that this is a
    true problem. Unfortunately, Gore is probable preching to the choir.
    If it convinces just one person it will help.

    Well Vice President Gore needs the money to fuel his private jets to travel the world and pay for the electric bills to light up his mansions. Can't blame him for trying to make some money about Climate Change but is the worst practitioner of Green Living.

    Please tell me that this book has nothing to do with dark matter.

    HIS foundation? How much does he (or his family members) pull out of this foundation in salary?

    He'd have a new book if he just removed all of the incorrect and false information contained in his first book: "An Inconvenient Truth". A suitable title might be: "The Rising Tide".

    Hey Neutralizer, where do you get your information? Have you been to the ice caps? I have. They're shrinking, along with all the glaciers.
    I was in antarctica last year and the climate change is incredible.
    Perhaps you need to pull your head out of the sand, or wherever it is and wake up to the fact that this world is in trouble.

    Gore has made his billions of dollars off of scare tactics and false numbers, just go away.

    hey, look at me! i'm too stupid to understand the complexities of climate change so i'll just insult and belittle them that does! guess i showed them!

    It hasn't been released yet because he is still making up the facts.

    This dude is a Quack (notice with a capital Q). He and the IPCC are in this for the money that they profit from this. The IPCC is funded by the government and , of course, they want to impose a carbon tax. The IPCC was already caught in October falsifying data to say it was warmer when, in fact, temperatures were cooler. Wake up!

    I find it funny... liberals believe in evolution, but still intend to "stop" climate change (as if tiny humans actually have the ability in the first place).

    In order for species to evolve, you must first have change as the catalyst... meaning the climate and earth have been changing since the dawn of time.

    Folks, we can't predict the weather, let alone change it. The weather man can't tell me with a shred of accuracy if it will rain this weekend, but we're supposed to believe Al Gore can tell what the temperature will be 100 years from now. Saying humans have the capacity to change the climate is like saying we have the capacity to change gravity. Humans are small and insignificant and when we as a species go extinct, the earth will still be here, heating and cooling in regular cycles as it always has.

    Using a scant few hundred years of shoddily-gathered data to predict the long-term climate is like sitting with your nose pressed up against your TV screen with the volume muted, focusing on one single dot of color, and attempting to guess the plot line. You can't do it... and why? Because your data set is too terribly, woefully thin from which to draw any conclusions.

    I swear, you give a monkey a brain and he'll think he's the center of the universe with the ability to change the climate.

    HALF MAN HALF BEAR HALF PIG!!!!!!!!

    No difference between liberals/global warming and neo-conservatives/Iraq. Same fascist ideals; different sides of the aisle. All about money and control.

    I think Al's gravity is causing global psychosis. He is causing the Earth to wobble thus inspiring manic depressive tendencies.

    Will he include the impact of raising cows for meat? That was the real inconvenient truth that was glaringly omitted from An Inconvenient Truth.

    For those of you who accuse Al of singlehandedly causing climate change because of his jet and his big house you need to imform yourself about carbon credits. He offsets his carbon use by buying carbon credits from companies that haven't used their share. Also, no human has ever been more succesful at informing an entire world wide population about climate change. That in itself would be enough to offset whatever meager carbon dioxide he puts into the atmosphere. I'm sure you will continue to bad mouth him though because your myopia is caused by your bipartisan hate.

    It's refreshing to see how people here are waking up to the global warming fraud.
