I'm quoted in USA Today this morning talking about Gore's solutions book--Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, currently at # 21 on Amazon. As I note, it is very good that Gore is focusing on fixes, given that An Inconvenient Truth was faulted for not having enough focus in this area. However, there is always the problem of partisanship: Who listens to Al Gore? Democrats, that's who. Republicans pretty much dismiss him out of hand--unfortunate, but it's true. I am very glad Gore is out there raising as much consciousness as possible about the climate crisis; he's a unique asset. But I am also sure we need very different emissaries to reach the denialists (if that's even possible).
