Al Gore spoke truth to power from #Davos

I agree with every single word! Listen carefully to understand why We Don't Have Time to wait.
– We are not winning. The crisis is still getting worse, faster than we are deploying the solutions. And we need to make changes quickly. emissions are still going up all these promises of the last few years to cut emission emissions are still going up. When are we going to bring these emissions down?

-/.--./- So in answer your question, I would say we have to have much greater sense of urgency. We've heard about divides at this conference between the north and south. And the east and west, there's another divide increasingly, between those who are old enough to be in positions of power. And the young people of this world.

Greta Thunberg was just arrested in Germany, I agree with her efforts to stop that a coal mine in Germany, young people around the world are looking at what we're doing. They look at the World Bank and they say, Oh, you've got a climate denier in charge of the World Bank. So why are you surprised that the World Bank is completely failing? To do its job? Secretary General says that everybody knows the World Bank is failing badly. Now we have the cop process.

Okay. What do I say to these young activists that I train around the world when they come to me? And they say, are you okay with putting the, the CEO of one of the largest oil companies in the world and in as the president of the cop? Is that really okay? Well, it's not whether he's a nice guy or not, or whether he's intelligent. The appearance of a conflict of interest undermines confidence at a time when climate activists around the world and I'm currently speaking for them right here on this stage, have come to the conclusion that the people in authority are not doing their job. There's a lot of blah, blah, blah, as Greta says, there are a lot of words and there are some meaningful commitments. But we are still failing badly. We need to have a supermajority process instead of unanimity in the cop. We cannot let the oil companies and gas companies and Petro states tell us what is permissible. In the last top, we were not allowed to even discuss scaling down oil and gas, can't discuss it a lot of the NDCs weren't even called for, are we going to be able to discuss phases, scaling down oil and gas and the next COP? Or are putting the oil industry in charge of the cop? Is that going to tell young people around the world, we've just decided to not even disguise it anymore. Let me finish with this point on the on the industry. You've had problems in your area where you tried to get legislation, and the oil and gas industry came in and fought you right?

-/.--./- We're going to stop using the sky as an open sewer. We're going to save the future and give people hope we can do it and remember that political will is itself a renewable resource.

Do you agree?
