Al Gore’s Talk at the TED Conference
You may have seen An Inconvenient Truth. This half-hour talk in March 2008 by Al Gore updates the slides from An Inconvenient Truth. In this talk, 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.
