Former Vice-President Al Gore's star has never shone brighter. Having "lost" the controversial 2000 presidential election, he's come blazing back into public life. He's fresh from the success of Live Aid; a recent Oscar winner for his blockbuster documentary An Inconvenient Truth; and one of America's most sought-after speakers on environmental and foreign policy. People are listening closely to what Al Gore has to sayand this compilation of speeches and quotations shares his voice and vision with readers across America. As election year nears, and thoughts turn to what could have been, it will really give everyone something to contemplate.Here are some of his inspiring words:On the environment: "The largest polluters close their ears and spend millions of dollars a year trying to intentionally confuse people into thinking global warming isn't real."On our failure to prevent 9/11: "On September 11th, the FBI had one agent assigned to monitor al-Qaeda and protect us against Osama bin Laden. I found that absolutely incredible."On George W. Bush and Iraq: "George W. Bush betrayed this country! He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place."
