Gore was Speaking in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by The Times.
He said future generations would put one of two questions to today’s adults.
“It will either be ‘What were you thinking, didn’t you see the North Pole melting before your eyes, didn’t you hear what the scientists were saying?’.
Or they will ask
‘How is it you were able to find the moral courage to solve the crisis which so many said couldn’t be solved?’”

If you have never heard about the Chicago Climate Exchange, it’s the model for a stock market, but for “green” industry. Where company’s can buy and trade carbon credits. If you check out their home page you can read all about tradable Carbon Financial Instruments. My opinion is this will be the next “bubble” for our economy. Which is why Obama and the congress are pushing so hard to push their cap and trade bill.
Guess who would oversee the carbon offsets, the Chicago Climate Exchange. Guess who helped fund them, Obama. And Guess who’s an Associate Member of the Chicago Climate Exchange, Generation Investment Management.
We’re suppose to believe these are the environmental patriots? So the guys who stand to make the most money off of green technology happen to be the guys going around the world convincing us if we don’t change our grand-kids will be living on a beach in Kansas because we let the north pole melt.
