John Doerr's on the business implications of the climate crisis.



John Doerr's impassioned talk on the business implications of the climate crisis.
"I don't think we're going to make it," John Doerr proclaims, in an emotional talk about climate change and investment.
Spurred on by his daughter, who demanded he fix the mess the world is heading for, he and his partners at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers embarked on a greentech world tour -- surveying the state of the art, from the ethanol revolution in Brazil to Wal-mart's (!) eco-concept store in Bentonville, Arkansas. KPCB is investing $200 million in green technologies to save the planet and make a profit to boot. But, Doerr fears, it may not be enough.

YOU Can Stop Climate Change

A description of some of the things we do in our household to reduce our CO2 emissions. Lots of them are easy, and there are many more I didn't have time to talk about in 2 minutes. If we all do our part to reduce CO2 emissions, we can turn the climate change crisis around. And we have to get our politicians to do their part to change what we can't do as individual.

Martin Rees asks: Is this our final century?



In a taut soliloquy that takes us from the origins of the universe to the last days of a dying sun 6 billion years later, renowned cosmologist Sir Martin Rees explains why the 21st century is a pivotal moment in the history of humanity: the first time in history when we can materially change ourselves and our planet. Stunning imagery of cosmological wonders show us the universe as we know it now. Speaking as "a concerned member of the human race," Rees harkens to the wisdom of Einstein, calling for scientists to act as moral compasses, confronting the coming developments and ensuring our role in "the immense future."

15 ways to avert a climate crisis : Al Gore



With the same humor and humanity he exuded in An Inconvenient Truth, spells out 15 ways we can address climate change, from buying a hybrid car to inventing a hotter brand name for global warming.
First, though, comes a hilarious set of stories from The New Gore, who turns out to be a stand-up comedian. The former Vice President has plenty of joke material, and he's funnier than you've ever seen him. Then he gets down to grittier matters with a list of actions ordinary people can take to stem the tide of global warming.
