Al Gore has been a passionate advocate of action to halt climate change for many years. In his best-selling book, An Inconvenient Truth, he wrote about the urgent need to address the problems of climate change, presenting comprehensive facts and information on all aspects of global warming in a direct, thoughtful and compelling way, using explanatory diagrams and dramatic photos to clarify and highlight key issues.

Adopting the same lucid technique in Our Choice, he proposes solutions at every level of our lives, from the personal and local to the national and political to the area of international policy and law.

This book is amazing and very persuasive. It tells some of the essential knowledge that we should know about the very basis of global warming. Generally speaking the book has very good incentives and the author clearly wants everyone to believe that global warming is caused by human and it should be prevented by all means that are necessary. The solutions to solve the climate crisis in the book are realistic and practical. The only thing I dislike is that the author puts too much criticism on Bush administration in a very biased way.
