The following is the text of Al Gore’s major energy policy speech given on Thursday, July 17th, 2008.
There are times in the history of our nation when our very way of life depends upon dispelling illusions and awakening to the challenge of a present danger. In such moments, we are called upon to move quickly and boldly to shake off complacency, throw aside old habits and rise, clear-eyed and alert, to the necessity of big changes.
Those who, for whatever reason, refuse to do their part must either be
persuaded to join the effort or asked to step aside. This is such a
The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. And even more – if more should be required – the future of human civilization is at stake. I don’t remember a time in our country when so many things seemed to be going so wrong simultaneously. Our economy is in terrible shape and getting worse, gasoline prices are increasing dramatically, and so are electricity rates. Jobs are being outsourced. Home mortgages are in trouble. Banks, automobile companies and other institutions we depend upon are under growing pressure. Distinguished senior business leaders are telling us that this is just the beginning unless we find the courage to make some major changes quickly.
The climate crisis, in particular, is getting a lot worse – much more quickly than predicted. Scientists with access to data from Navy submarines traversing underneath the North polar ice cap have warned that there is now a 75 percent chance that within five years the entire ice cap will completely disappear during the summer months. This will further increase the melting pressure on Greenland. According to experts, the Jakobshavn glacier, one of Greenland’s largest, is moving at a faster rate than ever before, losing 20 million tons of ice every day, equivalent to the amount of water used every year by the residents of New York City.
Two major studies from military intelligence experts have warned our
leaders about the dangerous national security implications of the climate crisis, including the possibility of hundreds of millions of climate refugees destabilizing nations around the world. Just two days ago, 27 senior statesmen and retired military leaders warned of thenational security threat from an “energy tsunami” that would be triggered by a loss of our access to foreign oil.

What are Al Gores friends saying?
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about?”
– Maurice Strong,
founder of the UN Environment Programme
“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty,
reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”
“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place
for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and
plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams,
free shackled rivers and return to wilderness
millions of acres of presently settled land.”
– David Foreman,
co-founder of Earth First!
“Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the
equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”
Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University
“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to
about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure
and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species,
returning throughout the world.”
co-founder of Earth First!
“The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.”
– Club of Rome,
Mankind at the Turning Point
“A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society
at the present North American material standard of living
would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard
of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”
– United Nations,
Global Biodiversity Assessment
“One America burdens the earth much more than
This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world
population,we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a
horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”
“The extinction of the human species may not
only be inevitable but a good thing.”
– Christopher Manes, Earth First!
“Childbearing should be a punishable crime against
society, unless the parents hold a government license.
All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”
David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club
Al’s friends talk about Global Warming
“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.”
– Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution
“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s
So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any
Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.“
– Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports
“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.”
– Sir John Houghton,
first chairman of IPCC
doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
– Paul Watson,
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of
global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms
of economic and environmental policy.”
– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation
“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world.”
– Christine Stewart,
fmr Canadian Minister of the Environment
“We are on the verge of a global transformation.
All we need is the right major crisis…”
– David Rockefeller,
Club of Rome executive member
Al’s friends talk about democracy
“The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable,
indeed a sacred principle of international relations.
It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to
the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.“
UN Commission on Global Governance report
“Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well
suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature
of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected
representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.”
Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution
“The emerging ‘environmentalization’ of our civilization
and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global
community will inevitably have multiple political consequences.
Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change
in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must assume some aspects of a world government.”
– Mikhail Gorbachev,
State of the World Forum
“In my view, after fifty years of service in the United Nations system,
I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper
Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present
political and economic systems are no longer appropriate and will lead to
the end of life evolution on this planet.
We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways.”
Dr Robert Muller,
UN Assistant Secretary General,
“Regionalism must precede globalism.
We foresee a seamless system of governance
from local communities, individual states, regional unions
and up through to the United Nations itself.”
Commission on Global Governance
Still worried about CO2?
The UN is using the harmless, necessary to life on earth, gas, to push for NWO. Think your govt. sucks?
Wait until your country is run by the unelected.
Why don’t you get this information from your news sources?
…..”it would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the
world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those
years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march
towards a world government …”
– David Rockefeller in Baden-Baden, Germany 1991, thanking major media
for keeping secret for decades the movement of the prophetic one world
