Al Gore e-book Our Choice comes to iPad, iPhone

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Thu April 28, 2011

Videos, interactive modules prove major elements

With help from Rodale, Melcher Media and Push Pop Press, Apple board member Al Gore has released a new e-book on the App Store, Our Choice. The title is described as a followup to An Inconvenient Truth, and once again tries to explain the causes of global warming as well as current and potential solutions. All of Gore's earnings from the app are being funneled back into the Alliance for Climate Protection, his non-profit educational organization.

The app is based on Push Pop's e-book framework, specifically designed for iOS devices. As such the book is media-heavy, including not just text but a variety of interactive elements such as maps, animations and infographics. Non-interactive media includes over an hour of video, some 250 images, and audio commentary by Gore.

The is app is a $5 download, and requires iOS 4.2 or better. Compatible devices are limited to iPads, the iPhone 4 and 3GS, and third- and fourth-generation iPod touches. Graphics scale accordingly, although the iPhone/iPod interface demands extra scrolling.

    Thank you lord, finally a reason to buy a iPad2. All of Gore's earnings go to HIS education fund. Yeah...Right. I'd rather buy 5, 1 Dollar f*** apps then his pile of bull which I'm sure Al gore did all of the research on.

    Cure for insomnia

    I'm sure this great literary work is filled with factual scientific research. People who pay for such c*** deserve to be parted from their money.

    The audio commentary should be a good cure for insomnia.

    Gore will kill us all

    Al Gore keeps flapping his jaw and the earth will not survive.
    FYI - the Earths climate has been changing for over 4 billion years.
