exploration 9 response to A Planetary Emergency
The speech that I found inportant was "A Planetary Emergency" by Al Gore. In the speech he talks about global warming which is an issue that affects the entire world. It is an issue that affects the whole world because we are destroying our atmosphere by the pollution that we produce today. He says, "Now science is warning us that if we do not quickly reduce the global warming pollution that is trapping so much of the heat our planet normally radiates back out of the atmosphere, we are in danger or creating a permanent "carbon summer". Some changes that have been made to aid the situation or help reduce global warming are the smart cars, green tires, hybrid cars, and semi-world alliance has been formed. I agree with Al Gore that a world alliance should be formed. Currently, we have an alliance but not a full alliance of all the world and I think we should strive for that. I also think that we, especially as Americans, should watch the amount of CO2 that we produce.
