Reviews

PRAISE FOR 'AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH' 'An impeccable slideshow, with just the right balance of gut-wrenching photographs, comprehensive charts and frightening predictions.' New Scientist 'A lucid account of what Gore rightly calls "a moral issue", delivered with authority, wit and style.' The Observer 'You can't fault his sincerity, rigour and energy as he pleads, with recourse to blinding graphs and damning photo evidence, that we all, especially his fellow countrymen, need to sit up and realise that global warming is neither a wacky theory nor a political manifesto, but stone-cold reality.' Time Out
