  1. Actually, we simply need to continue increasing efficiency, continue reducing emissions responsibly, continue research into optimizing ALL forms of energy and using the best source of energy to suit the given need. The World needs ALL forms of energy, for health, safety, protection, production, construction, manufacture, transportation, pleasure, comfort, competition, growth and success, just to name a few. Build a better mousetrap and the market is yours! But market should be achieved by capability and value, not by Mandate. That makes the most sense for Humanity. That makes the most sense for Humans also!

    I have a far greater fear of adapting to life and climate without fossil fuels than I will ever fear any life with them!

    Any Government, if worth it's salt, should be looking at issuing INCENTIVES to any Industry. The Industry tax will be 'X' amount, but if your Company increases Efficiency by a MEASURED % and reduces Emissions by a MEASURED %, then you get a scaled REDUCTION in your taxes! That way it shows commitment to the World, while keeping the Country successful with industry optimization, NOT elimination!

    The choice to support our World Class, ever optimizing Fossil Fuel Industry is up to the individual. Perhaps the Governments should simply issue two cards. #1 says 'I support fossil fuels', #2 says 'I do not support fossil fuels'. You can only sign one! But in order to get gas at the pump, or propane for your BBQ, you MUST have a signed #1 card!

    That will weed out a large number of hypocrites in my opinion.

    I am pro human, not pro 'anti human' Socialist agenda!

  2. Current update:  CO2 level is now above 400ppm, having risen 6-8ppm since January. 320Ksk of Arctic ice melt in one day (June 17-18); an exponentially greater increase than previous scenarios suggested.  (This, while Goldman Sachs continues the new exploit of "Century Bonds".  Gotta love the irony.)  The first, and most erratically powerful, El Nino in decades is building at our Equator, Gulf of Mexico temperatures are already above "normal", kudos BP, and hurricane season has barely begun. If all this weren't enough, preliminary data suggests Arctic Methane levels now exceed 3,000ppb and it's 3 months until the Autumnal Equinox.  Looks like the Arctic ice will be gone before September and we don't need a Methane "burp" to know that 4C+ is on a much nearer horizon than even Dr. Guy McPherson postulated.

  3. I wonder if the ass clown turned down the thermostat while he was out on his 10,000 sq ft mansion. Liberal leftists are the biggest hypocrites to walk the planet. Hows that bank account Al after you sold out to big oil you fuck nut ass.

  4. I find it quite funny that only 4% of green house gases are man made yet we think we can stop the Earth's on going climate change. Climate change is a natural thing. There has been mini ice ages way before man was industrialized. We could all go back to living like we did in the 7th century(which would make Muslims happy) and it wouldn't effect a damn thing. You people have been prdicting climate disaster since the 1970's and you'realways WRONG!!!!! So quit lying and just tell us what you really want. Our money and control over us and thats it.

  5. I don't quite understand why people are making the issue out to be fairy tale. It seems to me that most people are calling climate change (in regards to this presentation) BS because of who is presenting it. I highly highly doubt that the World Economic Forum, an organization that brings together top leaders in respective fields, and is as important as the G7 summit would allow Mr. Gore to present a piece if it had no credit.

  6. Climate, global warming, fuel, and renewable energy solution needed to control natural disaster. Davos 2015 – What's Next? A Climate for Action.
    Through a powerful visual narrative, Al Gore reveals what's next for climate in 2015.

  7. There were mega storms before there were cars.  Sink holes have opened up for various reasons all over the world (not every day, they are an anomaly) for eons.  We have also built on beaches all over the world, carted in sand to build to them up, because some people just NEED a water view.  Most of those properties are worth a fortune.  Are we stopping that?  Should we bulldoze all the mansions along coasts around the world?  How about closing down Las Vegas if you want to save water out west?  Yes California is in drought, a 500-year cycle drought that has occurred in the past and will occur again. 

  8. Gore enrolled in Harvard College in 1965, initially planning to major in English and write novels, but later deciding to major in government.[18][19] On his second day on campus, he began campaigning for the freshman student government council, and was elected its president.[19]

    Although he was an avid reader who fell in love with scientific and mathematical theories,[19] he did not do well in science classes in college, and avoided taking math.[18] His grades during his first two years put him in the lower one-fifth of the class. During his sophomore year, he reportedly spent much of his time watching television, shooting pool, and occasionally smoking marijuana
