Una scomoda verità : una minaccia globale( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

La condizione del pianeta e i rischi che corre a causa dei gas serra è la scomoda verità che Al Gore si impegnato a diffondere di persona attraverso un tour che si è esteso ai quattro angoli della terra avviato dopo aver perso (momentaneamente) la corsa alla Casa Bianca. Conscio di andare incontro allo scetticismo delle persone ma forte delle sue ricerche nel campo e di vent'anni di esperienza (già nel 1992 aveva pubblicato il libro Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit sul quale si basa la sua attuale "predicazione") Gore espone una serie di dati scientifici inattaccabili, tabulati, previsioni sul nostro prossimo futuro e risposte alla domanda su come affrontare il riscaldamento globale del pianeta. Il ritratto è sconfortante e per questo "scomodo"; scomodo per i governi, che al momento fanno finta di non sentire/vedere/sapere e scomodo per le persone che pensano non ci siano limiti allo sviluppo. (Mymovies)
