Our guest this week needs no introduction, former Vice President Al Gore.
From his early days in public life Al Gore has been warning the world about the promise and peril of emerging technologies, scientific developments, and geopolitical shifts. His latest book, now a NYT bestseller, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change provides a tour of the world to come. In The Future, Gore identifies the emerging forces that are reshaping our world.
Our interview with him focuses on a few of the book’s themes, specifically, the Internet and the emergence of the Global Mind, Globalization and what he calls “Earth Inc," Space Exploration, and the impact of new technologies on climate change.
