Al Gore at TED

Just watched this video of Al Gore at TED or Technology, Entertainment and Design.

I must say that Gore is much more at ease being a professor than he was being Vice President of the United States. I have a strong desire to see him run again but it appears that he is far too committed to the climate crisis to stop now. It’s a shame really, had we seen this aspect of Gore way back in 2000 maybe the chimp wouldn’t have gotten elected at all. Oh who am I kidding, the god damned Republicans would have pulled any trick to make sure Bush got in.

You can even run your own carbon footprint on Gore’s site that I listed above. The only issue I have with the carbon calculator is that it bases everything on cost and not usage. Since energy costs have been rising at a regular rate, the use of dollar amounts will skew your carbon footprint.

And check out this interesting little animation about Earth.
