The Future

0 comments 1 stars

The Nobel Prize-winning and bestselling author of An Inconvenient Truth and The Assault on Reason, returns with a new book

Subject: Geopolitics
 
The Future, Al Gore

In The Future, former US Vice President Al Gore, explores the political, social and economic forces that are shaping what America and the world will become in ensuing decades. From demographics to democracy, Gore explores what he calls the 'Drivers of Global Change', framing the international conversation about The Future in fresh and provocative ways.

With this new work, Gore hopes to help start a conversation about the large-scale drivers of change that are defining and shaping our future - from the rapid development and integration of radically new technologies to the planet-changing impact of the climate crisis, to poverty, globalization, and the democratisation of knowledge accompanying the emergence of a ubiquitous internet linking ever more intelligent devices.
