Al GoreThe follow-up to Al Gore’s best-seller, An Inconvenient Truth, will hit store shelves this fall — and it has a new name.

Publisher Rodale Books announced today that the former vice president’s book — now called Our Choice — will be out on November 3.

This new work will pick up where An Inconvenient Truth left off and utilize Gore’s experience as a student, policymaker, author, filmmaker, entrepreneur and activist to discuss real solutions to global warming.

The book — which was called The Path to Survival when first announced two years ago — will be printed on 100 percent recycled paper.

An Inconvenient Truth reached millions of people with the message that the climate crisis is threatening the future of human civilization and that it must and can be solved,” Gore said in a statement. “Now that the need for urgent action is even clearer with the alarming new findings of the last three years, it is time for a comprehensive global plan that actually solves the climate crisis. Our Choice will answer that call.”

Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth was published in 2006 and was a companion book to the Academy Award-winning documentary of the same name. The following year he was named a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace prize for his environmental work.

Not bad, huh?

I’m a little embarrassed to say that I never read Truth, so I’m putting that on my to-do list before this next one comes out.

Will you buy Our Choice? Did you read An Inconvenient Truth? Let me know below.
