Al Gore on Climate Change- We're Going to Win this!!!

Loved This Amazing TEDTALK from Al Gore in Vancouver 2016, it's 25 minutes, so grab a drink and get comfy!

Here two important points he made.
From the Transcripts.

Come on kids, you are going to be OUR HEROS!!

"I'll finish with this story. When I was 13 years old, I heard that proposal by President Kennedy to land a person on the Moon and bring him back safely in 10 years. And I heard adults of that day and time say, "That's reckless, expensive, may well fail." But eight years and two months later, in the moment that Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon, there was great cheer that went up in NASA's mission control in Houston. Here's a little-known fact about that: the average age of the systems engineers, the controllers in the room that day, was 26, which means, among other things, their age, when they heard that challenge, was 18."

"Now, in one of the presentations yesterday, the jitney thing, there is an effort to use regulations to slow this down. And I just don't think it's going to work."
23:43 "There's a woman in Atlanta, Debbie Dooley, who's the Chairman of the Atlanta Tea Party. They enlisted her in this effort to put a tax on solar panels and regulations. And she had just put solar panels on her roof and she didn't understand the request."
 23:56 (Laughter)
23:58 "And so she went and formed an alliance with the Sierra Club and they formed a new organization called the Green Tea Party. "
24:05 (Laughter)
24:06 (Applause)
24:07 "And they defeated the proposal. So, finally, the answer to your question is, this sounds a little corny and maybe it's a cliché, but 10 years ago -- and Christiana referred to this -- there are people in this audience who played an incredibly significant role in generating those exponential curves. And it didn't work out economically for some of them, but it kick-started this global revolution. And what people in this audience do now with the knowledge that we are going to win this. But it matters a lot how fast we win it."

TOGETHER we WILL change the world!
