Former Vice President AH Gore has studied the environment for over 30 years. Gore has deep feelings for the Earth and also has great concerns for Its future.

In the thin shell of the atmosphere surrounding our planet we have dumped events million tons of global warming pollution into the earth. That number grows more and more every day. The pollution we put in to the air is attracting more heat from the sun, causing glaciers to melt. The melting glaciers have already affected major cities in North and South America, Asia, and Austria, having massive droughts and almost out of water. Other countries are planning evacuations due to massive floods.
Breakout wildfires forced a half million people out their homes. The extreme increase in temperature has caused tens of thousands of people to lose their lives. Warnings of global warming have been stated for over fifty years, but have yet to take action. One of the first Nobel Prize winners worried about the evaporating coal mines in the air. Calculations of the Earth’s average temperature were recorded by Savant Awareness and the results were if we doubled the amount of carbon dioxide the temperature would increase.
People ignore the dangers of carbon dioxide because we can’t see, smell, or taste it. Gore expresses deeply how we can’t ignore this problem and we still have time to solve it.
