"The consequential age we are living in will be remembered as one of the great turning points in civilization. Once we turn, though, where will we be? That is the compelling question Al Gore sets out to answer by examining the drivers of global change, connecting the dots among the social, economic, and political forces shaping our present and future. A rising global consciousness is forcing people around the world, but especially Americans, to rethink their basic assumptions about how the world works, and, even more fundamentally, how it should and can work. Borders matter less than ever. Technology is constantly reordering the way we live, think, work, learn, love, pray, and play"--

Let's see, Al Gore, and several of his Goldman Sachs buddies, founded a carbon permit trading hedge fund - - ostensibly to curb pollution, but is really just another money-creation financial scam. And we should listen to this dude about real stuff?!?!?!?

Written by Al Gore, and his staff. He acknowledges all 35 (?) of them. down a couple of guys who ran the "white boards." Voluminous, with complex diagrams (sets & subsets) through time and space. Most readers will learn what to skip over. and when to pay attention. A lot of new historical connections. i.e. Islam may be in its current condition, because the Ottoman Empire forbid using the Guttenburg press for 200 years
