A Planetary Emergency (2007)

“Al Gore Jr. shared the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for their efforts to inform the world about “man-made climate change” and their work to establish measures need to counteract such change.”
Al Gore talks about the climate change in his speech and what has caused it to be happening over the years. He talks about how our world is “spinning out of kilter” and how CO2 is a big affect. I do not agree with all that he says because I feel there is not much proof with things he states, because I think it’s just how the world is just changing not because of people living on it. I do agree to help out our environment to make some changes. I think the changes are being made such as helping recycle materials and not wasting things like water, food, and electricity. His issue affects our world by people becoming more paranoid and helping our environment to become healthier and less waste full. The things that have been done since the speech, is people have been working on keeping the air healthy trying to make cars with less poison coming out of it. I think it’s mainly our air that’s dirty and the ground is not clean so somehow invent a different way to help our air and environment if nothing is working. I like the quote from this Spanish poet, Antonio Machado, “Pathwalker, there is no path. You must make the path as you walk.” I liked this small passage just because it is so true.
