Summary
Gore argues that a rising global consciousness is causing people across the earth to rethink their basic assumptions about how the world works--and even more fundamentally, how it should and can work. He offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast identifying the emerging forces reshaping our world: ever-increasing economic globalization; the worldwide digital communications revolutions; the shift in balance of global political, economic, and military powers; an economic compass promoting unsustainable growth in consumption, pollution flows, and depletion of the planet's strategic resources of topsoil, freshwater, and living species; scientific revolutions transforming the fields of medicine, agriculture, and molecular science; and a disruption of the relationship between human beings and the earth's ecosystems, along with the beginning of a transformation of energy systems, agriculture, transportation, and construction worldwide.
Summary
The former vice president and #1 best-selling author of <i>An Inconvenient Truth</i> offers a frank assessment of six critical drivers of global change in the decades to come--economic globalization, worldwide digital communications, a growing balance of global power, unsustainable population growth, scientific revolution and disruption of ecosystems
