“There are good people from both parties[politics] that hold this issue at arms length, to acknowledge it, to recognize it. Because the moral imperative to make big change is inescapable.” – AL Gore
‘Ignorance Bliss’
“What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.” – Mark Twain

“The Era of Procrastination, of Half-Measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a Period of Consequences.” – Sir Winston Churchill, 12 November 1936

“Separating the truth from the fiction & the accurate connections from the misunderstanding is part of what you learn here. But when the warnings are accurate and based on sound science, then we, as human beings, whatever country we live in, have to find a way to make sure that the warnings are heard and responded to.” – AL Gore

“Doubt is our product, since it is the best means of competing with the “body of facts” that exist in the minds of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy in the publics mind.” (Leak hidden agenda of those that oppose to the Surgeon General report between tobacco and lung cancer)

“Scientists have the obligation to present the truth as they currently see it.”- Al Gore

“Scientists being forced to write false testimonies, prosecuted, ridiculed, deprived of jobs and income, being silenced, simply because the facts that they have discovered led them to an inconvenient that they are insisted on telling.” – Al Gore

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” – Upton Sinclair

Al Gore mission: “trying to understand whats in those people’s minds that serves as obstacles to them to understanding [global warming] issue… move it, demolish it, blow it up, the only way to do it is to communicate this REALLY CLEARLY… city by city, person by person, family by family. Enough minds will change and we will cross a threshold.”

” There are lots of people that go from denial to despair without the intermediate step of actually doing something about the problem. The solutions are in our hands we just have to have the determination to make them happen.”

“… and that is what’s at stake. Ability to live on planet earth, to have a future as a civilisation i believe that this is a moral issue. It is your time to seize this issue. It is our time to rise again and to secure our future. One day there will come a time when the future generation will ask these questions: ‘What were our parents thinking? Why didn’t they wake up when they had a chance?’ We should adhear to these question now. “
