The only thing we can be sure of about the future is that it will be absolutely fantastic. So if what I say now seems to you to be very reasonable, then I have failed completely. Only if what I tell you appears absolutely unbelievable, have we any chance of visualizing the future as it really will happen.

Planetary Emergency: To Go Far Quickly

A video of Mr. Gore's remarkable statement to the press on the award of the Nobel award is available.

With those points in mind, I am passing along a letter from the Alliance for Climate Protection:
As you might have heard, Al Gore was awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize for his tireless efforts to help solve the global
climate crisis. But he's not working alone -- millions of people
across the country and around the world know that climate change
is a critical issue that we need to act on, and now.

With the proceeds of his Oscar-winning movie, Inconvenient Truth,
Al Gore founded the Alliance for Climate Protection. You can do
your part today by joining the Alliance's mailing list. You'll
receive important news and be given the chance to take actions
that will help stop global warming.

Mr Gore said it best: "We face a true planetary emergency. The
climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual
challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to
lift global consciousness to a higher level."

Please sign up now to stand with Al Gore and make important
contributions to the urgent, but solvable, global warming crisis.
Our increasing numbers will demonstrate to leaders in every time
zone and on every continent that halting climate change is a top
priority.
