The Global Warming Crisis: Causes, Consequences & Solutions
Starting with "An Earth in the Balance," and continuing in lectures and efforts leading up to the film and book, "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore has made it a mission to inform the public about the science and effects of global warming. Now, through The Climate Project, Mr. Gore is leading a community dedicated to informing citizens about the realities of global warming, and the actions required to fight this crisis. Diane Demee-Benoit is one of 1,000 people selected to present the information delivered in "An Inconvenient Truth" to audiences across America.
Global warming has become a true planetary emergency. Come hear about the scientific evidence and the alarming changes we're seeing, and learn about the actions we must take today to fight this crisis.
