New thinking on the climate crisis: Al Gore's presentation in TED 2008

It's always interesting to hear Al Gore, especially when he shows a new presentation. This one was given at the TED 2008 conference in Monterey, California few weeks ago.

This is a short version of a presentation he was giving for the first time and I recommend you to take 27:54 minutes of your time and watch it. Gore speaks on many issues related to the climate crisis, including the need to lift the sense of urgency and what's the solution (hint: put a price on carbon). It's a disturbing presentation as was his last one, which we know from 'An Inconvenient Truth', but also an optimistic one.

Gore's presentation is followed by a brief Q&A in which he is asked for his verdict on the current political candidates' climate policies and on what role he himself might play in future.

So here it is. Enjoy!
