Exploration 8

One of the noble prize speeches that I thought was interesting was Al Gore’s speech on global warming. It really got my attention because I learned something that’s very important to us as human species. Al talks about global warming and how we are living in the midst of a great chemical experiment and some serious consequences are becoming obvious to scientists. It is inspiring to me because Al gore gives us details that so many people don’t know about and what’s coming to our planet in the future. After reading his speech what come to mine was that we could do a lot of things to help our planet to not change that way it is right now. Our planet is changing very fast if we keep continue what we are doing right now. He said this, “So today, we dumped another 70 million tons of global-warming pollution into the thin shell of atmosphere surrounding our planet, as if it were an open sewer. And tomorrow, we will dump a slightly larger amount, with the cumulative concentrations now trapping more and more heat from the sun” (619). This quote got me say wow because what al gore said on his speech was unbelievable and people don’t care. there just doing what is good for them right now and don't give a care about the result that is cause to us. We need to stop immediately and take more action to fix our planet.

i agree with you. Al Gore's speech was persuasive and into the point. it was clear and it warned people about the eminent danger we might face if we don't take care of our planet. i like your quote also "we dumped another 70million tons of global warming pollution into the thin shell of atmosphere surrounding our planet"
