Exploration 8 " A Planetary Emergency"
My favorite speech was the one by Al Gore called "A planetary emergency". It really caught my attention because it seems as though many people have forgotten about the planet. I really like how Al Gore gets everyone involved by telling them that they owe it to the planet to help rebuild since they contributed to the destruction of the atmosphere. At one point in his speech he says "We are recklessly burning and clearing our forests and driving more and more species into extinction. The very web of life on which we depend is being ripped and frayed". He tells us that we if continue on the path that we ware on right now there wont be much left. I really like this quote becuase its reminder to everyone that we need to make some changes or else we wont exist.
