Gore to pen new book

(CNN) - Former Vice President Al Gore will pen a new policy book, publisher Random House announced Tuesday.

The book will focus on "the political, social and economic forces that are shaping what America and the world will become in ensuing decades," according to the publisher's press release.

Gore said in the statement, "With this new work, I hope to help start a conversation about the large-scale drivers of change that are defining and shaping our future - from the rapid development and integration of radically new technologies to the planet-changing impact of the climate crisis, to poverty, globalization, and the democratization of knowledge accompanying the emergence of a ubiquitous Internet linking ever more intelligent devices."

Gore, who won the Nobel Prize in 2007, previously authored the bestseller "An Inconvenient Truth," which examined the implications of global warming.

    Get out your tin-foil hats as the right-wing fringers will deny the existance of the sun if Gore includes it in his book.
    Gore should say something as ridiculous as "the GOP is correct in denying proven science and factual history" so the GOPer's pea-brains will expolde as they might actually have to "think" and possibly even – God forbid – ponder this predicament. That would be worthy of a faux reality show. LOL

    Let's hear it neocons! The man who, had W not been able to steal the 2000 election, whould have continued the budget policies of Clinton (remember a $250 billion surplus?), listened to the 8/6 Presidential Daily Brief and stopped the 9/11 plot, and realized that the mortgage deregulation was becoming problematic and prevented the financial meltdown, has nothing relevent to say. For sure, your leader did such a good job with the country – record deficits after being handed a record surplus, bungled two wars, one of which you all started with lies.

    Let's hear how he has nothing relevent to say.

    Another work of fiction from the tremendous Gourd. Perhaps he can work a unicorn, fairy princess and talking turnip into this fairy tale.
