Earth Day Tribute – Al Gore’s New Thinking on the Climate Crisis

April 22, 2009

I have the utmost respect for Al Gore and the heroic work he has done to wake us all up about global warming – what it means, how it is affecting our planet, and what we can do about it!  If you have not yet seen An Inconvenient Truth, I strongly advise you to take the time out and rent it.  In the meantime, if you can catch 5-10 minutes of this recent talk given by Gore at a TED Conference, it would give you a taste of his generous work and the sense of urgency that we ought to have about the climate crisis.  I thought it fitting to share this on Earth Day 2009!

    I agree. The Inconvenient truth is an eye opening account of the many self afflicted “man made” dangers threatning the world we live in. I mean its really is scary to think about what we are doing to our planet, and if we don’t change our behavior soon enough the coming few generations will pay dearly for it!

    I like how Al Gore creates this sense of urgency by truly enlightning the viewer in this subject matter. I will be the first one to admit that until i watched this documentary, i use to think that the melting of polar ice caps was probably a good thing because eventually it will create the bigges commercial trade route around the world … the Arctic Sea Route! Wrong!

    We all have to think utilitarian on the topic of the environment. This directly affects all of us and we all have a vested interest in making sure that the world we pass on to our children will be around for them to raise their children in.

    Happy Earth day!

      Well said. It is encouraging to see the numbers of people who are coming out to support ‘green causes’. t The challenge now lies in sustaining and capitalizing on that support. Most importantly, we have to stay individually informed and remain conscious of how we live, making the ‘little’ decisions each day that contribute positively to our planet and our karma!
