Not too many people can say, “Well, I used to be Vice President of the United States, but then my career really took off after that.” Al Gore is the first man in history to win both an Academy Award (well, his name isn’t on the statue but he was the one gripping the thing onstage) and a Nobel Peace Prize.

Copies of An Inconvenient Truth are likely to evaporate from the shelves like methane from a cow pasture. Back them up with other books about climate change and environmentalism, or with books by other Presidents and Vice Presidents. Jimmy Carter‘s got a new one coming out (Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease and Building Hope), in addition to last year’s Palestine: Peace not Apartheid.
