The Best of the Best of the Web


" interview with Gore that appeared last May in a publication called Grist:"

"Q: There's a lot of debate right now over the best way to communicate about global warming and get people motivated. Do you scare people or give them hope? What's the right mix?"

"A:...Nobody is interested in solutions if they don't think there's a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis."

"And it's not as if Gore's "over-representations" don't have harmful effects. They've caused a lot of people to get really sad and stressed out."

"...venture capitalist John Doerr:"

""I'm scared," he told the audience, looking down at his 15-year-old daughter in the front row. "I don't think we're going to make it.""

"Doerr issued a passionate call to action for everyone to make environmental concerns their "next big thing.""

"Jennifer Garner:"

"Jennifer has also confessed she cries more now she is a mother. The actress believes the experience has made her more caring."

"She said: "Since I became a mother, I cry more because I care about things more."

""I can't watch a movie where something happens to a child. And I've always cared about global warming and breast cancer, but now there seems to be an urgency about them.""
