Free presentation of Al Gore’s Slide Show

Posted in Movements by Ferne Edwards on May 1st, 2007

Like Rachel Carsons “Silent Spring”, Al Gores movie “an inconvenient truth” was a watershed in the environmental movement, it focused world attention on the problems of global warming and climate change. The precursor to this movie was the Al Gore Slideshow. A simple, but poignant, slideshow which clearly demonstrated the current impact and possible future impact of climate change, while dispelling the myths of global warming denial.

Sustainability Street is proud to present the “Al Gore Slideshow” which will be delivered by Al Gore trained presenter Gilbert Rochecouste.
