Publisher Rodale to Reissue EARTH IN THE BALANCE, Former Vice President Al Gore's 1992 Book on the Environment
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 21, 2006--
-- Release Follows the Success of Gore's Book About Global Warming, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, Now a New York Times No. 1 Bestseller with a Half Million Copies in Print --

Rodale Books, publisher of former Vice President Al Gore's No. 1 New York Times bestseller about global warming entitled AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, will reissue his first bestselling book, EARTH IN THE BALANCE: Ecology and the Human Spirit in Fall 2006 (Rodale Books, Paperback, $15.95; On Sale October 31).

AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, published in May, is No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list with more than 500,000 copies in print. Mr. Gore continues to tour the country to promote both the book and documentary film about the destructive effects of climate change, and what can be done about it.

While AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH focuses on the immediacy of the global warming emergency, EARTH IN THE BALANCE takes a broader approach, focusing on the deep roots of threats to our climate, water, soil and diversity of plant and animal life. The intent is for EARTH IN THE BALANCE to add to the overall environmental discussion brought about by Mr. Gore's initiatives.

(snip)

The forthcoming paperback version of EARTH IN THE BALANCE will feature a new introduction by Mr. Gore that documents important political and environmental developments which have occurred since the book's original publication in 1992. Mr. Gore writes about what he had planned to accomplish as president of the United States, how ExxonMobil helped remove the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and how he thinks the current administration has steered the country in the wrong direction in dealing with the environment and the climate crisis in particular.
