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.
