His pioneering efforts were outlined in his best-selling book Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit (1992). He led the Clinton-Gore Administration's efforts to protect the environment in a way that also strengthens the economy.

In 2007, An Inconvenient Truth was awarded two Academy Awards for Best Documentary Feature and Best Original Song.
His newest book, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change, surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast by identifying the emerging forces that are reshaping our world.
The co-founder and Chairman of Generation Investment Management, a firm that is focused on a new approach to Sustainable Investing, Al Gore is also Chairman of the Alliance for Climate Protection, a member of the board of Apple, a senior advisor to Google, and a visiting professor at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
