Wechselt die Gesetze aus, nicht nur die Glühbirnen!

Al Gore hat einen neuen Vortrag zum Klimaschutz entworfen. Seine vorherige Präsentation hat er etwa 2000mal vorgeführt. Hier finden Sie einen Video (28 Minuten), der diesen neuen Vortrag von Al Gore zeigt. Unbedingt ansehen!

Hier ein paar Highlights:

As important it is to change the lightbulbs, it is more important to change the laws.

In order to solve the climate crisis we have to solve the democracy crisis … and we have one.

We need a worldwide global mobilisation for renewable energy, conservation, efficiency, and for a global transition to a low carbon economy. We have work to do. And we can mobilise resources and political will.

We need a CO2 tax revenue neutral to replace taxation on employment. Times have changed since Bismarck

If you are investing in tar sands or shale oil, then you have a portfolio that is crammed with subprime carbon assets. And it is based on an old model. Junkies find veins in their toes when the ones in their arms and their legs collapse. Developing tar sands and oil shales is the equivalent.

We can do it. If we just had one weeks worth of what we spend on the Iraq war we could be well on the way to solving this challenge.

We have sclerosis in our democracy.

We should not have any new coal fired power plant that aren’t able to capture and store CO2.
