Al Gore’s Tremendous Presentation At Abu Dhabi Ascent (Exclusive Videos)

May 4th, 2014 by  


Al Gore’s presentation today at the opening ceremony of Abu Dhabi Ascent* was absolutely superb. But what else do you expect from a guy who runs a nonprofit focused on presenting global warming catastrophe and key global warming solutions to the general public? What else do you expect from a guy who won a Nobel Prize for a movie?

Much of the presentation was extremely similar to what Gore told POLITICO in a recent interview and what he said at a recent presentation in Hawaii, but there were some other important components added into this one… and I got almost all of it on video.

I could write up a summary of the presentation, but that wouldn’t do it justice at all, so I’m going to force you to watch it if you want more info. Here’s the presentation spread across three videos (since YouTube won’t let me publish a video more than 10 minutes in length):

Later on in the Abu Dhabi Ascent opening ceremony, Sir Trevor McDonald had the chance to ask Gore a few more questions. Here’s that more impromptu back and forth:

I spoke very briefly with Gore later in the day, but he told me that he was not doing press interviews. (Standard for Gore these days.)

Despite shrugging me aside, I still think Gore is one of the best if not the best communicator on the topic of climate change. His presentation today absolutely nailed it. Be sure to share with your friends and family!

Stay tuned for more coverage from Abu Dhabi Ascent in the coming days. I’ve got a very interesting one-on-one exclusive video coming as well as some videos of several other climate and cleantech leaders.

*My trip to Abu Dhabi Ascent is being covered by Masdar.
