A live presentation and discussion about the most critical issue of our times as seen in the film and book “An Inconvenient Truth”
OCTOBER 23, 8PM
INTIMATE LOWER BOWL
VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE has once again emerged front and center on the national and international stage with the response to both his bestselling book and major motion picture based on it, entitled An Inconvenient Truth. Recently holding the #1 slot on the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Denver Post, and Washington Post bestsellers lists, and receiving rave reviews from film critics, An Inconvenient Truth ultimately brings home Vice President Gore's persuasive argument that we can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue but rather, as the biggest moral challenge facing our global civilization. Since the 2000 election, Vice President Gore re-channeled his energy to focus on an all-out effort to help save the planet from irrevocable change. In demand by the media, Vice President Gore has been a featured guest on television’s most watched programs- The Jon Stewart Show, Jay Leno, Saturday Night Live, and 360 with Anderson Cooper. With a funny, engaging, open and downright-on-fire style, he urgently delivers the stirring truth about what he calls our “planetary emergency.”
Vice President Gore's political career began when he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976 where he served eight years representing the then 4th District of Tennessee. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984 and was re-elected in 1990, becoming the first candidate in modern history -- Republican or Democratic -- to win all 95 of Tennessee's counties. Al Gore was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States on January 20, 1993.
During the administration, Vice President Gore was a central member of President Clinton's economic team — helping to design the program that led to the strong US economy, casting the tie-breaking Senate vote for the plan in 1993, helping to pass the first balanced budget in 30 years. He helped usher in the longest peacetime economic expansion in American history — with over 18 million new jobs, wages rising twice the rate of inflation, the lowest African-American and Hispanic poverty on record, the highest level of private home ownership ever, more investment in our cities, and the lowest unemployment in 29 years.
