Notes from a Skimm-tern:

THE STORY:  Skimm intern Jacob Pharoah went to see Al Gore talk about his new book “The Future.” And stayed awake through it all. 

WHAT DID AL SAY:  With a sober yet hopeful outlook he talked about global change (the topic of his book) and the ultra-modernized America we are heading towards, highlighting his six major drivers of global change.

WHICH ARE…  Economic globalization, international digital communications, a change in the balance of power, a flawed economy, revolutions in science, and the human disruption of earth’s ecosystems.

IS THE BOOK OUT?  Yep, it’s hot off the presses. So go get it and tell us what you think.
