Recommended to +Chaz by: Book store in Biloxi Mississippi after Katrina
Recommended for: Anyone who would like to know what we knew back in the early 1990s
Read in January, 1995

This book was written over 14 years ago and the republicans made fun of Gore back then calling him the “ozone man, he’s way out their.” He was also right, and the leaders of the Republicans, the Corporates new it but manipulated their base. If you tell a lie long enough, and stay on track with the message, your base will believe anything. As Hitler said, people are not motivated by sound information, facts, but emotions and feeling (I love that). How can anyone not believe what this book presented in 1994? Gore was not only right, but underestimated the impact of global warming. The Corporate party knew, but because it would impact their profit line they told their emotional followers to believe them and not sound scientific facts. Even today, Earth in The Balance predictions are buried under the impact of Global Warming, the Corporate party lies and say’s ‘it’s just an natural thing, you know, climate change. As Gore explains, never in recorded history has this earth been hit with a sudden climate change of less than a century that didn’t create a massive die off. The last one was 65 million years ago. The next one has already started, and there's nothing we can do to stop it. Remember the thing about emotions against reason?
