Before becoming Vice President, Al Gore spent 15 years leading the fight in Congress to save the global environment. Convinced that the engines of human civilization have brought us to the brink of catastrophe, Gore, as a senator, proposed a brilliant and comprehensive plan for action in Earth in the Balance. In this brave and provocative reading, he argues that only a radical rethinking of our relationship with nature can save the Earth's ecology for future generations. His forceful analysis of where we've gone wrong ranges across politics, history, science, economics, psychology, and religion, and addresses issues involving not only ecology, but also population trends, technology, and environmental education.

    " Although this book was a little hard to get through, it has a ton of great ideas that the world should've been following 22 years ago when Gore wrote them. Unfortunately, here we are in 2011 and only a small fraction, at best, have been implemented and global climate change is rearing its head more and more every day. I wonder what it will take before we all band together and try to fix the mess we've made. That day sure seems to be coming soon, it definitely NEEDS to be. "

    " This book was on my reading list for an Environmental Land Use Planning class I took in law school. I was impressed Al Gore had such scientific knowledge and the interest in the subject to write it. Then someone told me that politicians often "collaborate" with ghost writers to get credit as author for books for political purposes. I don't know how much Al Gore was involved in writing this book, but it still was a good book. I am saddened Al Gore was cheated out of becoming the president in a year that popular vote in the US chose him. The environment would have been in a much better state, as would international opinion of the United States, not to mention all the lives needlessly sacrificed and scarred as a result of President Bush's choices.
