Al Gore’s Oscar Speech

I can’t believe I wasted my evening watching the Oscars last night, but it was worth it just to hear Al Gore‘s eloquent acceptance speech for his film, An Inconvenient Truth, winning the Best Documentary Feature award.

People all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It’s not a political issue, it’s a moral issue. We have everything we need to get started, with the possible exception of the will to act. That’s a renewable resource. Let’s renew it. – Al Gore

I think it ranks right up there with Margaret Mead‘s famous quote:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead
