The talk was fairly similar to An Inconvenient Truth. Vice President Gore used an Apple MacBook Pro and Keynote 3.0 to deliver his presentation. It’s probably the best infographic talk that I have ever witnessed. The content and the presentation were stellar.

As Vice President of the United States, winner of the popular vote in the mind-whirling campaign of 2000, congressman, Vietnam veteran and journalist, Al Gore offers a unique perspective on national and international affairs. He is also one of the most powerful champions of environmental awareness in America today.
His multimedia presentation, which is a mesmerizing account of the consequences of climate change, was turned into the critically acclaimed documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, and is making headlines across the country.
In addition to his impassioned efforts with the environment, he has also carved out a considerable business career as Chairman of Generation Investment Management, a new London-based fund management firm that creates environment-friendly portfolios; Senior Advisor to Google; one of the Board of Directors of Apple Computer and is President of the recently launched and successful Current TV, a cable television network aimed at 18 – 24 year olds which is best described as a cross between MTV and CNN.
