what is the truth

"An Inconvenient Truth", this movie was made for Americans.
There was an American student living upstairs in my apartment. When it wasn't very cold, the air conditioner had to be turned on 24 hours a day. I would rather wear a shirt or short sleeves at home.
Because the noise was too loud, I went to him, and he explained to me that this is his living habit.
I really can't understand, you will die if you wear a thin sweater, and will you die if you put on a thin quilt at night?
It was the Iraq War, and at one point I fantasized about an IED blowing up.
Fortunately, he later moved out.
This is why the United States has a population of only 200 million, and ranks first in the world in terms of both overall and per capita carbon emissions.
Compared with the universe, the earth is not even a sesame seed, and the same is true of human beings compared to the earth.
No matter how the climate changes, for us, it is an extremely insignificant personal experience.
We don't know the weather dozens of kilometers away, and we can't even accurately grasp the weather tomorrow.
The film mainly discusses the topic of "global warming".
Gore has been researching this issue since he was young (this is much more powerful than 99% of officials in the turtle, who study thick black)
Some people say that the global warming does not matter, and the age of dinosaurs was much warmer than now.
Others say that the earth is cooling and that it is just a lull in the ice age.
It is difficult for us, non-scientists, to know who is right.
Maybe even scientists don't know.
However, this does not affect our listening to Mr. Gore's lecture.
Nothing is more straightforward and shocking than pictures or figures.
This is the so-called "seeing a hundred things is better than seeing a hundred
things." The ice melted in shock at these images.
It took humans 10,000 generations to increase to 2 billion, and it took only one generation to increase to 6 billion.
The next step is 9 billion.
The earth has never carried so many humans, and some scientists say that it is about to enter the "Anthropocene".
The loss of one football field per minute in the primeval forests of
the Amazon is more alarming than the warming of the planet, and in
any case, there is no denying that humans are having an ever-increasing impact on the planet.
So no matter whether the earth is getting colder or warmer,
please remember to turn off the lights, turn on the air conditioner less, walk more, and drive less.
Hands up.

    Shocking facts...What can we do...the future is in our hands...

    It looks heart-wrenching. Politics aside, as an environmental documentary everyone should watch. This is a moral issue. I have to say that the speeches of American politicians are super powerful, very provocative and infectious. In addition, this film is also very suitable for practicing English listening. twenty four

An Inconvenient Truth quotes

  • Al Gore: We have the ability to do this. Each one of us is a cause of global warming, but each of us can make choices to change that. With the things we buy, the electricity we use, the cars we drive, we can make choices to bring our individual carbon emissions to zero. The solutions are in our hands. We just have to have the determination to make them happen. Are we gonna be left behind as the rest of the world moves forward?

    [on the screen behind him, a list of countries appears]

    Al Gore: All of these nations have ratified Kyoto. There are only two advanced nations in the world that have not ratified Kyoto, and we are one of them. The other is Australia.

    [on the screen, a map of the United States is shown]

    Al Gore: Luckily, several states are taking the initiative. The nine northeastern states have banded together on reducing CO2. Uh, California and Oregon are taking the initiative. Pennsylvania is exercising leadership on solar power and wind power. And U.S. cities are stepping up to the plate.

    [on the screen, a list of cities appears, to applause]

    Al Gore: One after the other, we have seen all of these cities pledge to take on global warming.

  • 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.
