A Guided Tour of Our Choice

Al Gore demonstrates the groundbreaking features that make Our Choice the first full-length interactive book of its kind.

Stunning Photography

Our Choice includes more than 270 images by some of the world's finest photographers and photojournalists. The photos reveal the sources of global warming, survey where our energy comes from, and show off how solutions to the climate crisis are coming into focus. They are the visual backbone of the reading experience and depict people and locales in every corner of the globe with artfulness and unflinching clarity.


Audio Captions

Photos throughout the app feature original audio commentary by Al Gore, describing his own experiences and perspectives, conveying new information, and adding historical and social context to the images.


Documentary Features

Our Choice contains 35 short movies that comprise more than an hour of documentary footage. The videos include compelling introductions to the roots of the climate crisis, historical footage, and interviews with green pioneers such as food activist Michael Pollan and atmospheric scientist Charles Keeling. In addition, 15 original animations show how natural systems, energy technologies, and proposed solutions work.


Interactive Maps
