In his next major work, Al Gore helps listeners take the next steps in their lives to really get the seriousness of the climate crisis, and to call on visionaries and influential entrepreneurs, scientists, community and government leaders to begin pushing the envelope towards finding the big ideas that can become reality and help solve the climate crisis.
As he did to great success in An Inconvenient Truth, Gore will offer a mix of the personal and the philosphoical, from taking listeners through the process of environmentally retrofitting his own home to presenting a new "creation myth" that explains in terms both poetic and real how we can begin to view ourselves as one with the earth, not merely its inhabitants. Expanding on his unique and proven ability to share abstract and scientific material in a compelling, accessible fashion, Gore will help listeners distinguish between what has already been accomplished, what is on the way to being a reality, and what, at this point, is just a big idea waiting for testing, funding, or someone to recognize its validity.
Drawing on his imcomparable access to the people behind the ideas, Gore will collect the most promising and provocative thoughts on the topic and translate them into terms the average listener will understand and relate to.
