In his latest TED talk, Al Gore, founder and chairman of The Climate Reality Project, poses three questions that will determine the future of our planet – and why there’s good reason to be optimistic.
Under the rubric “Ideas worth spreading,” each year, the TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) conference brings together a collection of the world’s most compelling, surprising, and original thinkers to connect and explore the themes, factors, and forces shaping our world today – and pointing to our world of tomorrow.
The theme of this year’s conference in Vancouver, British Columbia – which ran February 15—19 – was “Dream.” TED curators invited Climate Reality Chairman Al Gore to headline the “Nightmares” session. But instead of focusing exclusively on the terrifying aspects of climate change, former Vice President Gore turned the topic on its head, outlining why he’s optimistic and why – even in the face of rising seas and melting glaciers – we can dare to dream of a safe and sustainable future planet. Here are three ideas worth spreading from the talk.
1. DO WE REALLY HAVE TO CHANGE?
The challenge came first. Each day, manmade greenhouse gas pollution traps the same amount of heat energy as would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-class atomic bombs. This trapped heat is warming the oceans and increasing the water vapor and energy in our atmosphere, leading to stronger storms, more extreme floods, increasingly long droughts, and other results he characterized as “a nature hike through the Book of Revelations.”
2. CAN WE CHANGE?
Fortunately, we’ve already started to change. Renewable energy is growing exponentially. In fact, its growth has significantly beaten expert projections time and time again. And the cost of solar energy has come down around 10 percent every year for the past 30 years. With all this expansion, the renewable energy transition could very well be the biggest business opportunity in the world right now.
3. WILL WE CHANGE?
This question is up to us – all of us – right now. In December 2015, 195 countries approved the Paris Agreement on climate change and agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It was truly a breakthrough after decades of failed attempts. And around the world, from China to India to the US, countries are adding more and more capacity in renewable energy (in fact, 69 percent of new electrical capacity added in the US last year came from renewables). The change is happening – what’s up to us right now is how long we take to get there.

Please… shut up! Have you ever studied science at school? I have never heard so many B.S. in my life! Ahah! All the best! 😉
ZAP GORE WITH HAARP
Climatephobia is a superstition of control. No different than the old superstitions regarding the solar and lunar eclipses used to decieve the pagan civilizations. Are we really that stupid?
DEFORESTATION AND GRASSLAND REMOVAL are all human acts. These are having an enormous effect on the planet and desertification. Carbon taxes ARE NOT the answer – REPLANT FORESTS and grasslands.
Lord Monkten a "climate realist" has proven the mathematics of their computer models for climate change is faulty, what's happening with that?
Are you CEREAL ?????
the thumbnail! Al as Leo hahahaha
Can't Al Gore just go away somewhere & leave us in peace ?
Bill Nye…"The Garbage Science Guy" is a joke….not even a real scientist….just a paid propagandist. Everything he says is a lie!
AL GORE IS PURE EVIL – ONE OF SATAN'S LITTLE HENCHMEN
Listen to Lying Al Gore fake his Southern Accent to appear more "down home" This criminal is serving the globalists and hates Christians and Truth and G_d
Al Gore needs to be in JAIL….he is PURE SCUM TRAITOR JACKASS – AL GORE SUCKS
"The next generation would be justified in looking back at us and asking 'what were you thinking?'" Ironically enough, we could never have been more justified in asking Al Gore that same exact question; What were YOU thinking, knowing you can't even lower your own emissions for the life of you? That, even if he was directly challenged to actually lower his own emissions. He was probably ferried in there by a gas-guzzling private jet, so that should come into question. Claiming to be a paragon against carbon induced climate change, means that his history of carbon emissions should come into question, now!
Al gore a convenient lie….
can some one kill al gore please
climate change is a lie. The climate cycles and the cycles don't change. Total Lie…. Wake Up !
