We’ve written about Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project several times now. And you can still host a Climate Reality presentation in your town (we encourage that). But Gore and the … [Read full article]

When I first saw this piece in the Guardian, I thought “WTF?” The Guardian is actually the only mass media machine I really respect and follow on global warming and climate change issues. But this piece tearing into Gore for a quote that was not actually a Gore quote (but a Guardian journalist’s quote) was a shocker, and abysmal piece. Interestingly, it came from a climate scientist who doesn’t seem to be getting the respect his colleagues is getting. Anyway, here’s Dr. Joe Romm’s full debunking:

Today is World Population Day. It was established on July 11, 1987 when world population hit 5 billion. This year—just 24 years later—world population is expected to surpass 7 billion. There is hardly cause to celebrate when you consider it took some 50,000 years for the population to reach 5 billion, and just 24 to add another 2 billion.
Yeah, I think I skipped a week or two, but this excellent quote by Al Gore in his completely excellent article in Rolling Stone this week is worth some highlighting:
“Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real. It is time to act.”
I never get political on Facebook, but I need to comment about Al Gore’s Rolling Stone article…
I did a short preview of Power Shift 2011 last week. Unfortunately, living across the pond (and half a continent away), I wasn’t able to make it to the event. If you’re like me & wish you could have been there, here are a few great videos from the event, videos of wonderful speeches on global warming, climate change, and activism by Tim DeChristopher, Al Gore, and Bill McKibben.
