Gore penning new climate change book

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="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.

    You obviously have no idea how net-metering works.

    ….and it will be a best seller on the fiction best book list.

    Funny isn't it how many of you have no problem believing that the earth was created in seven days, is only 2000 years old and that
    two of each animal were put on a great big boat.

    Ok hippies, I'll take the bait...
    So maybe the earth is warming. How do we know what the "normal" temperature is supposed to be? It could possible that "normal" is actually much warmer than it currently is now. How do we know?

    We don't.

    And that's the problem, because neither do you.

    But what we do know, is who stands to profit from this hysteria... shyster hippies selling "carbon offsets" to dupes more gullible than themselves.

    The Republican party will never be trusted with our government again unless and until the right-wing haters and the neo-conservative fools are purged from their party. Otherwise a new 3rd party of moderates will rise to replace the mean-spirited base of the current Republican party. Until then, America will bask in the common sense of liberal Democratic government.

    Actually JP, there are ways to determine what is the 'normal' temperature for the Earth as a whole (considering only the period AFTER the last Ice Age), which is another proof of the global Warming.

    and Jason (3:58 pm ET) who said 'The polar ice cap grew last winter…', please tell us WHO told you that, WHERE did you picked that BLATANT LIE. The polar ice caps are diminishing year after year, the permafrost is becoming more rare every winter, it is very likely that in less than ten years any boat would be able to cross the North Pole on its own... so NO, the polar ice cap did not 'grew' last year.

    Give up already Al Gore. You're wrong. This has been the coldest, snowiest winter that I can remember in a long time. There's been a freaking blizzard the last couple days here. I wouldn't mind some global warming to come by and melt it away!

    To get conservatives to look at the book Gore will have to put in a lot of colorful pictures and simple words. Kinda like a child's book. Conservatives don't have the attention span to absorb facts, charts, and lengthy text.

    Will a pretty little graph of Al's CO2 output per day, compared to all of us posters, heck, we'll include you too, COMBINED!! convince you that this guy is a JOKE when it comes to following his own advice?
    By all means, write a book about the horrid nature of mans over indulgence, just make darn certain you aren't sitting there overindulging yourself while writing it.

    And the lame excuse of "oh, flies private because...uhmm...he has no self discipline and feels he is entitled to disregard his own advice" retarded. He needs to live up to his standards, or appoint someone that will. He's a disgrace to the message!

    The ignorance displayed by the non-scientists posting comments is staggering.

    both sides always say the same thing..........wake up and do some research and quite being snow balled.

    we'll i've researched both side and have decided we haven't discovered the truth yet. being as the left side CAN"T prove it is man made i think its toooo early to put bs taxes on companies. pollution is bad but we shouldn't cripple our economy and peoples way of living just cuz al gore has a hunch.

    al gore isn't a scientist and really doesn't seem to know anything about anything. the scientists are sorta split on this one with more and more leaning right every day. dont worry people it will be decided eventually. the left think the debate is over...but omg it has only just begone. the momentum is swinging to the RIGHT and swinging HARD. ie. the global temperature dropping DRAStically the last few years.

    the earth warms and cools how it sees fit. we're in a cooling stage right now way behind time for our next ice age.

    Send this guy walking . Nothing he has to say has any merit to it at all.

    What he is trying to do is get as much media time as he can on a topic

    he knows nothing about.
