Gore: we face … a planetary emergency
To be “fair and balanced”, I need to start blogging about some Republicans. For here’s another Democrat: former Veep Al Gore, who spoke at TED, linked from Loïc Le Meur’s blog. His Podcast highlights some of the environmental problems we face—and that we can change the world.
An earlier version, delivered in 2004, is at AlGore.org. I wouldn’t criticize the Hon Mr Gore for doing bits by way of a rerun: the issue remains more pressing now than in 2004; and it shows how little progress we’ve made in two years. And there’s more than enough new material in the speech that should make all of us very worried about how the world’s climate has become less stable in the last two years, and why lakes, glaciers and parts of the Arctic ice cap have disappeared.

Update: Loïc was asked by the TED people to remove Mr Gore’s speech (blog post here).Post a Comment
