Can't give up no matter what

* Topic: Global warming

* Organization:

Two lines are interspersed, the main line is a clear structure, and the secondary line is Gore's monologue, he shares his life: how he grew up on a natural farm; The turning point is the gradual attention to environmental protection from the experience of Congress; his loss and calmness are only one step away from the presidency.

He was rarely excited, but he always gave it his all.

What effect of global warming?

Synchronization of CO2 and temperature rise, Earth is a non-linear system, there may be sudden changes in

glacier melting - oceans lose their shields, floods spread,
ocean temperatures rise sharply - frequent hurricanes,
ocean currents stall may allow Europe to enter again During the ice age, the melting of the North and
South poles - the melting of Greenland has greatly reduced the land area, and the Netherlands and Manhattan may sink. .


Why?
3 factors:
Population surge: 5 billion to 9 billion in 50 years - 10,000
Technology: New technology is the only way out

how to solve that
3 misconceptions
1) The scientific community is controversial about the consequences of global warming
- survey shows no, the controversy was created deliebarately, for commercial interests to confuse the public
. 2) There must be a trade off between money and the environment
- he used comics to give us choices very vividly. What if we want money and lose the environment? Then the example of the global auto industry "win-win" is the way to survive - Toyota vs. Ford.
3) There is nothing we can do
- This is the value level. The situation is so urgent and the reality is so frustrating that our efforts are insignificant. Are you complaining? Doubt what we do is worthless? Gore calmly told us not to give up, he has given more than a thousand speeches, he has traveled all over the world, and he believes that his mission is to spread. He practiced the unity of knowledge and action.

At the macro level, Gore compared the different attitudes of the United States, Japan, and EU countries in the Kyoto Agreement, and implicitly criticized the arrogance of the United States; he also listed various achievements of the United States since its establishment: realizing democracy, overthrowing slaves, women Equal rights, eradicate communism, go to the moon. . All kinds of misssion impossible, inspire everyone here to work together at the micro

level, and the end of the credits lists what we can as individuals

* Afterwards, I will pretend to imitate some's attitude easily: it's naturl, so what? The buffered emotions also make us think. This is different from Rice's fiery counterattack. Gore's style is humble and contemplative. 3) After the only speech that excited Tsinghua, a girl asked him what we can do? The scholarly demeanor suddenly became emotional: to distinguish between misleading and truth. . I think that's the highlight of the film. Global warming is a problem with multiple causes, rapid changes, and catastrophic consequences. However, there are many stakeholders and different opinions, and it is difficult to form a joint force . * Perception This is the first time that Gore's speech is close. RUBIN describes him as an introspective and wise scholar , indeed. I also fell in love with his restrained humor. He is exactly the gentleman who is gentle and beautiful as described by Confucius.

An Inconvenient Truth quotes

  • Al Gore: Ultimately, this question comes down to this. Are we, as Americans, capable of doing great things even though they are difficult? Are we capable of rising above ourselves and above history? Well, the record indicates that we do have that capacity. We formed a nation, we fought a revolution, and brought something new to this earth, a free nation guaranteeing individual liberty. America made a moral decision that slavery was wrong, and that we could not be half free and half slave. We, as Americans, decided that of course women should have the right to vote. We defeated totalitarianism and won a war in the Pacific and the Atlantic simultaneously. We desegregated our schools. And we cured fearsome diseases like polio. We landed on the moon! The very example of what's possible when we are at our best. We worked together in a completely bipartisan way to bring down communism. We have even solved a global environmental crisis before, the hole in the stratospheric ozone layer. This was said to be an impossible problem to solve, because it's a global environmental challenge requiring cooperation from every nation in the world. But we took it on. And the United States took the lead in phasing out the chemicals that caused that problem. So now we have to use our political processes in our democracy, and then decide to act together to solve those problems. But we have to have a different perspective on this one. It's different from any problem we have ever faced before.

  • Al Gore: I've probably given this slideshow a thousand times. I would say at least a thousand times. Nashville to Knoxville to Aspen and Sundance. Los Angeles and San Francisco. Portland, Minneapolis. Boston, New Haven, London, Brussels, Stockholm, Helsinki, Vienna, Munich, Italy and Spain and China, South Korea, Japan. I guess the thing I've spent more time on than anything else in this slideshow is trying to identify all those things in people's minds that serve as obstacles to them understanding this. A-And whenever I feel like I've identified an obstacle, I try to take it apart, roll it away. Move it. Demolish it, blow it up. I set myself a goal. Communicate this real clearly. The only way I know to do it is city by city, person by person, family by family. And I have faith that pretty soon, enough minds are changed that we cross a... a threshold.
