Description
Former US Vice President and climate change activist Al Gore discusses his book "Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Global Climate Crisis." In his follow-up to the bestselling "An Inconvenient Truth," the Nobel Peace Prize winning former vice president outlines a comprehensive strategy for combating the impending global climate crisis, while at the same time addressing long-standing issues of global poverty and inequality. This talk was given shortly before the December 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. In his talk, Gore stated that he believed that there was an "excellent chance of a binding political agreement among heads of state in Copenhagen, which would begin implementation of reduction in emissions." Today, the Copenhagen summit is widely regarded among climate scientists and activists as a failure, since no agreement to globally reduce carbon emissions was struck among the participating nations.
