Al Gore's 'Dirty Weather' Warning To Fight A More 'Just Planet'

Gore said in filmed remarks to the Social Good Summit in New York City: “We face a global crisis of unprecedented proportions. We are dumping 90 million tons of heat-trapping carbon pollution into the atmosphere every 24-hours, and it is altering our climate. Now we find ourselves living in what scientists call a ‘new normal’ of more extreme weather that’s happening all over the world with increasing frequency. And the results — fire, flood, drought, crop and livestock devastation, refugees, just to mention a few — impact everyone, everywhere. But like all crisis, this one includes opportunity as well as danger.”
