My climate journey // Current TV
I actually had the pleasure of having Dr. McCracken sit next to me at breakfast by chance and we had a conversation about current conditions in the Arctic, Greenland and extreme weather. At the end of it he told me to never stop asking questions and anyone who knows me knows I certainly won't stop doing that. I thought to myself, imagine that- me an average citizen sitting with an IPCC scientist at breakfast discussing this important crisis. It made it all the more clearer to me the importance of all of us seeking to arm ourselves with knowledge because it does make a difference.
...The music, being with a room full of people who shared a unified cause and seeing Al Gore listening to it all as he sat on the floor like the down to Earth man he is solidified for me that I was where I belonged-here in this movement doing this work. It was a great end to an inspiring day. And while I really didn't get a chance to talk personally with Mr. Gore because of security I hope he got the message I sent him.
...Standing up in front of an audience to talk about climate change is like entering the arena to face the lions.
