Al Gore: New thinking on the climate crisis
by Al Gore, TED April 8, 2008
In Al Gore’s brand-new slideshow (premiering exclusively on TED.com), he presents evidence that the pace of climate change may be even worse than scientists were recently predicting, and challenges us to act with a sense of “generational mission” — the kind of feeling that brought forth the civil rights movement — to set it right. Gore’s stirring presentation is followed by a brief Q&A in which he is asked for his verdict on the current political candidates’ climate policies and on what role he himself might play in future.
Quote: As important as it is to change our light bulbs, it’s more important to change our laws.”

Al Gore has a brand new presentation that goes beyond his Inconvenient Truth show. Good to see him move more towards the position expressed in Climate Code Red
