Summary

Al Gore grew up in two worlds: in Washington, D.C., where his father was a U.S. senator, and on a Tennessee farm. As an adult, Gore followed his father into politics, serving as a senator, then as vice president of the United States, and finally as the Democratic contender in a 2000 presidential bid. All the while, he made technology and the environment his primary causes. Since leaving politics, Gore has embraced technology to educate the world to the dangers of global warming and helped shape a new way of thinking that benefits both the environment and the people who depend on it. Producer of the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, Gore was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his work exploring global warming. Al Gore follows the career trajectory of this political player turned environmental champion.
