Gore vs. Bush

A few years ago Helen clark got into trouble for basically saying that the world would have been a better place if Al Gore had beaten George Bush in the presidential elections (back before the "war on terror"). I always agreed with her whole-heartedly. This recent piece in the Guardian about Gore's new movie makes me wonder what a difference he could have made on the environmental front. Imagine the US, signed up to Kyoto and pioneering emissions reductions...

Apparently, there is a great mp3 going around of Gore's recent address at a TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) conference, in which he outlines his views. Unfortunately, TED doesn't seem to want anyone to post it so it is difficult to find.

As an alternative, here is a speech on climate change by the guy who somehow managed to get elected over Gore.
