AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH to be adapted for young adults
Publishers Penguin and Rodale have announced today a joint effort to publish an adaptation of Al Gore’s book AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH: THE CRISIS OF GLOBAL WARMING for young readers.
Penguin Young Readers Group President had this to offer on the impetus for the project:
As I sat in a theater watching Vice President Gore deliver his message on film, it struck me that if we are to make an impact on the problem of global warming in the near future, we must find a way to bring the message to a younger audience; to the generation that has the opportunity to effect real change. These books are our attempt to do just that.
Al Gore will be donating all of his profits from the young adult book to fight global warming.
