We’re here to Watch Al Gore Teach Us Some Slightly More Positive Inconvenient Truths.
This is video is hot of the TED desk. He’s back, full of fresh stats, new charts, minus the scissor lift (probably because of the excessive power the hydraulics used) but with a 2/3 positive points.
So if your’e looking to feel better about all that aviation fuel we’re all burning as we fly around the world taking photo’s of beautiful sunsets and morning fruits to spread our creative seeds on Instagram and afternoon workouts on Snapchat you’ll have to sit through the first five minutes before you get to the sunny side of the street.
As Al Gore say’s – ‘Watching the evening news is like taking a nature hike through the book of Revelations’ (great analogy!)
Regardless, I hope you get to watch the whole thing – he’s energy is contagious 🙂
Definitely watch for part two and three. That’s where the positive-ness-ness really kicks in, and if that doesn’t make you want to be a better traveller then you’ll be the first we all ‘thank’ when we’re all wearing SPF-1000+ as the sunrise comes while wade through streets to the local 7-11 🙂
Please take a look! It is actually a great talk. Lots of great stuff to know, learn and act on.
“Al Gore has three questions about climate change and our future. First: Do we have to change? Each day, global-warming pollution traps as much heat energy as would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-class atomic bombs. This trapped heat is leading to stronger storms and more extreme floods, he says: “Every night on the TV news now is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation.” Second question: Can we change? We’ve already started. So then, the big question: Will we change? In this challenging, inspiring talk, Gore says yes. “When any great moral challenge is ultimately resolved into a binary choice between what is right and what is wrong, the outcome is foreordained because of who we are as human beings,” he says. “That is why we’re going to win this.”
