After discussing his new book, “The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change,” Gore will answer questions from the audience and sign book copies.

The book and tickets for the event, presented by Warwick’s and the San Diego Law Library, will be available from Jan. 29 to Feb. 8 at Warwick’s, 7812 Girard Ave.

Books and tickets may be reserved by calling (858) 454-0347. Copies may also be picked up at the event starting at 6 p.m., though a paper ticket is required to receive the book.

Both sobering and hopeful, the six points addressed in the tome include economic globalization; the creation of the “global mind” through digital communications; the shift in global political, economic and military power; our current economic direction; changing life sciences; and the relationship between humans the Earth’s ecosystems.

“This event showcases what the Law Library is all about — expanding the concept of how the law impacts all of our lives,” said John Adkins, director of the San Diego Law Library.

“We bring Mr. Gore to San Diego to offer insight into the emerging forces that are fast reshaping our world. His talk will interest anyone who cares about our future in digital communications, economic globalization and the balance of global power.

“His vision will make us take a hard look at current laws and regulations, and will require future-thinking lawmakers to understand and address these issues. Regular people like us — in addition to politicos, economists, and world visionaries — will all be informed and enriched by Mr. Gore and his new book.

“As a result of Mr. Gore’s proposals, I am expecting social reactions that match nothing less than the wave of new thinking caused by Alvin Toffler’s ‘Future Shock.’”

Heather Christman, Warwick’s marketing and co-op coordinator said, “We are always looking for ways to partner with people in our community and are very pleased with the opportunity to work with the San Diego Law Library for this event.”

Admission is $35 for one ticket and a copy of the book, and $50 for two tickets and one copy of the book. For more information, visit warwicks.indiebound.com/event/al-gore

  1. I think its terrible to host Mr. Gore. I used to admire him but with his alliance with Al Jazeera I simply cannot be in the same town with such a crime. I am just ashamed of his actions.
