Al Gore describes the shift toward a low-carbon future that is currently taking place, and how we can work to accelerate it:

“Is there enough time? Yes. Damage has been done, and the period of consequences will continue for some time to come, but there is still time to avoid the catastrophes that most threaten our future. Each of the trends described  – in technology, business, economics and politics – represents a break from the past. Taken together, they add up to genuine and realistic hope that we are finally putting ourselves on a path to solve the climate crisis.”

One thought on “Al Gore’s new upbeat book on climate change”

  1. I found this reference on the website of Stanford University’s Millennium Alliance for Humanity & the Biosphere (MAHB) http://mahb.stanford.edu/library-item/the-turning-point-new-hope-for-the-climate/ One of MAHB’s founders is a scientist for whom I have had a long-standing positive regard – Paul Ehrlich – author of the controversial “The Population Bomb”. When I was teaching in Sydney, Australia in 1970, my secondary students appeared with Ehrlich on a TV programme and I have followed Ehrlich’s prescient work ever since. I have joined MAHD as an associate on behalf of the CASE initiative.
