Al Gore presents his new slide show

Al Gore at TEDBy now I guess everyone has seen Al Gore's movie and slide show, or at least understands the severity of climate change.

Now Al Gore has updated his slide show and "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."

You can see his presentation of the new slide show over at TED (or after the jump). The video is 27 minutes long but worth every second of your time.

""Junkies find veins in their toes when the ones in their arms and their legs collapse... Developing tar sands and coal shale is the equivalent.""

I write about this all the time at the GetSolar.Com - Blog, but the comparison to a "junkie," though striking, is actually quite apt. And that's in the mistaken sense that somehow going green, moving towards renewables, is going to be a burden. It is, instead, going to be an opportunity. We're going to be better off - this isn't the advent of some miserable new future, it's a chance to get things right, and life doesn't hand us second chances all the time. Great presentation, you're right to link to it!

Eric, I totally agree with you; yes, GREEN is going to be an opportunity, maybe not for us our even for our children, but for our grandchildren. An opportunity, but I'm afraid also a last chance - if Gore is right. Kamiel www.green-challenge.org

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I agree with Al Gore. I think global climate change should be concidered one of the most important problems of the world. I usually don't do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part. I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that www.EarthLab.com is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April? I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips. I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do to help the environment. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
