8 Quotes From Al Gore on Global Warming

  1. “Global warming, along with the cutting and burning of forests and other critical habitats, is causing the loss of living species at a level comparable to the extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. That event was believed to have been caused by a giant asteroid. This time it is not an asteroid colliding with the Earth and wreaking havoc: it is us.”
  2. “Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real.”
  3. “The global environment crisis is, as we say in Tennessee, real as rain, and I cannot stand the thought of leaving my children with a degraded earth and a diminished future.”
  4. “The planet is in distress and all of the attention is on Paris Hilton.”
  5. “We can believe in the future and work to achieve it and preserve it, or we can whirl blindly on, behaving as if one day there will be no children to inherit our legacy. The choice is ours; the earth is in balance.”
  6. “I stand by all the misstatements that I’ve made.”
  7. “It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.”
  8. “There’s an old African proverb that says “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We have to go far quickly. And that means we have to quickly find a way to change the world’s consciousness about exactly what we’re facing, and why we have to work to solve it.”
