Al Gore September 14, 2006

Al Gore began his political career in the U.S. House of  Representatives in 1976 and as Vice President, he was a key player in  the Clinton White House on a wide range of issues. However, with the national release of his documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” Gore has emerged as a forceful and compelling voice on the dangers of global warming and other ecological hazards. While his career as an environmentalist includes pioneering efforts to protect the earth’s ozone layer and to eliminate toxic waste from the environment, his 30-year passion and commitment to protecting the environment is most evident in his best-selling book, Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit (1992). Gore’s role as a leading emissary on the dangers of global warming is reinforced by his documentary in which Gore—a powerful and effective speaker—makes an urgent and compelling case for responsible environmental policy based on solid scientific evidence.
