Message from Al Gore: “The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change.”

(This Message was in my E-Mail Box, tonight)

-----------------

Message from Al Gore:

Almost a decade ago, someone asked me a question, “what are the drivers of global change?” I’ve spent a lot of time over the last eight years thinking about it, and have dedicated the last two years to researching, writing and refining my conclusions. The result is my new book, “The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change.” .

We are living in a time of rapid, simultaneous and exponential change, unlike anything the world has ever seen. From revolutionary changes in our economy and our climate, to advances in life sciences and the digital realm, the future holds great opportunities but also profound challenges.

We have a choice.

Will we be swept along by the currents of technological change and economic determinism, or will we unite behind a future that preserves human dignity and reflects the aspirations of global citizens? Together we have an important role to play in reclaiming control of our destiny, but it starts with a global conversation.

While mapping the future is a risky undertaking, perhaps the only thing riskier is doing nothing.
