you start to look into the guts of climate change you find
that just about every scientific institution in the world
is conducting research on the issue.

warming pollution, indeed all pollution, is now described
by economists as an externality. This absurd label
means, in essence: we dont to keep track of this stuff
so lets pretend it doesnt exist.
Gore # Global
are many who still do not believe that global warming is a
problem at all. And it's no wonder: because they are the targets
of a massive and well-organized campaign of disinformation
lavishly funded by polluters who are determined to prevent
any action to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause
global warming out of a fear that their profits might be affected
if they had to stop dumping so much pollution into the atmosphere.
Gore # Global
- We sometimes
emphasize the danger in a crisis without focusing on the opportunities
that are there. We should feel a great sense of urgency because
it is the most dangerous crisis we have ever faced, by far.
But it also provides us with opportunities to do a lot of
things we ought to be doing for other reasons anyway. And
to solve this crisis we can develop a shared sense of moral
purpose. (talking about the environamental crisis)
Gore # Crisis,
- All across
the world, in every kind of environment and region known to
man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating
storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate
over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it
real, it's here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly
new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.
Obama # Environment,
the Kyoto Protocol enters into the force tomorrow, the world
will take a significant and long-awaited first step towards
stemming global warming. Instead of stepping forward as the
world leader on climate change, however, the Bush Administration
is clinging to the role of world obstructionist.
Pelosi # Global
- We are
upsetting the atmosphere upon which all life depends. In the
late 80s when I began to take climate change seriously, we
referred to global warming as a "slowmotion catastrophe"
one we expected to kick in perhaps generations later. Instead,
the signs of change have accelerated alarmingly.
