An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It by Al Gore
My report is about the book An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do about it, written by Al Gore and published in 2006.
I want to show you an important book which is understandable to all kinds of readers. The theme of the book is environmental protection. In a simple but vivid way the author tells his readers about the greenhouse effect and global warming.
In every corner of the globe on land and in water, in ice and disappearing snow during heat waves  the world is witnessing mounting and undeniable evidence that natures cycles are profoundly changing.( Gore Al., 2006, p.8) tells Al Gore in an introduction to his book. In this book he shows how heat kills our planet and what we can do with it.
An Inconvenient Truth is a new kind of book with pictures and graphics to make a whole message easier to follow (Gore Al., 2006, p10) writes the author about his work. Also, the book is full of pictures. It is as a slide show. Gore shows some pictures of the Earth taken from the various places at various times. He shows how our planet has changed.
An Inconvenient Truth is also party autobiographical book. In this book Al Gore tells about his researchers and people who helped and still helps him in his work.
Al Gore opens his book An Inconvenient Truth, by pointing out the nature of the word crisis, He writes about its Chinese depiction. It consists of two symbols. One symbol means danger, the other means opportunity.
In the first section of the book, he shows the first-ever pictures of our planet and describes how The Earth has changed.
Then, he describes the greenhouse effect, and tells about the reasons of it: The overflow in methane and carbon dioxide, caused by the fuel burning, wastewater treatment, livestock farming, and other processes. Then he tells about Roger Revelle his former instructor and mentor. Revelle was a highly respected scientist. He helped Gore to start his research.
In his book Al Gore tells about his family, who helps him in his researches. He shows the results of his travels with his wife. He writes about the probable consequences of rising temperatures.
Al Gore describes to his readers what will happen, if we dont stop this global warming. He describes flooded cities caused by the rising of ocean levels, , and melting ice in Greenland and Antarctica, he writes about forest fires caused by the heat, and soil moisture evaporation, which makes dry land where nothing can be grown.
But all this problems can be solved. : This crises will get resolved only if we as individuals take responsibility for it, by educating ourselves and others, by doing our part to minimize our use and waste of resources. (Gore Al., 2006, p305) writes Al Gore giving hope to the people to solve this problem.
Gore, in this book, gives advises how we can save our planet. He tells what we must do to make ecology better. We can built clean engines, we can harness the Sun and the wind; we can stop wasting energy.( Gore Al.,2006.) tells he and describes the actions of each person to stop this dangerous process (global warming).
I believe that we can stop this danger. If each person does a little step to minimize his\her use of resources and learned how not to waste resources. All together we can change the situation and save our world.
This bright book attracts peoples attention to the problem of global warming and gives people the way of solving it. It can influence to the society and make people think about the way of their life and make some of them to do a little action in solving our planet.
