Frasi Al Gore

„Adesso avvertimenti di diverso tipo segnalano un olocausto ambientale senza precedenti. Ma dov'è la vigilanza morale che potrebbe renderci più sensibili al nuovo modello di cambiamento ambientale? Ancora una volta, i leader mondiali cianciano, sperando che il pericolo si dissolva. Eppure oggi l'evidenza di una Notte dei cristalli ecologica è chiara come il suono di un vetro che s'infrange a Berlino.“

—  Al Gore, libro Earth in the Balance

Origine: Now warnings of a different sort signal an environmental holocaust without precedent. But where is the moral alertness that might make us more sensitive to the new pattern of environmental change? Once again, world leaders waffle, hoping the danger will dissipate. Yet today the evidence of an ecological Kristallnacht is as clear as the sound of glass shattering in Berlin.

„Nei prossimi 5 o 7 anni la calotta di ghiaccio che ricopre il Polo Nord potrebbe scomparire completamente nei mesi estivi.“

—  Al Gore

Origine: Da una dichiarazione del 2009; citato in Chicco Testa (con Patrizia Feletig), Contro (la) natura, Marsilio Editore, Venezia, 2015, p. 93. ISBN 9787-88-317-1956-8

„I'm going to be candid with you. I had hoped to be back here this week under different circumstances, running for re-election. But you know the old saying: you win some, you lose some. And then there's that little-known third category.“

—  Al Gore

Referring here to the controversial US presidential election of 2000
Quotes, DNC Address (2004)
Contesto: I'm going to be candid with you. I had hoped to be back here this week under different circumstances, running for re-election. But you know the old saying: you win some, you lose some. And then there's that little-known third category.
But I didn't come here tonight to talk about the past. After all, I don't want you to think that I lie awake at night counting and recounting sheep. I prefer to focus on the future, because I know from my own experience that America's a land of opportunity, where every little boy and girl has a chance to grow up and win the popular vote.

„The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don't say, "Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it's not a problem." If the crib's on fire, you don't speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action.“

—  Al Gore

Testimony before Congress (21 March 2007), as quoted in "Gore Implores Congress To Save The Planet" at CBS Evening News (21 March 2007) http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/03/21/politics/main2591104.shtml?source=RSSattr=HOME_2591104

„To meet these challenges requires cooperation on a scale not seen before. A realistic reading of the world today demands reinvigorated international and regional institutions. It demands that we confront threats before they spiral out of the control. And it requires American leadership — to protect our interests and uphold our values.“

—  Al Gore

Quotes, IPI speech (2000)
Contesto: The disruption of the world's ecological systems — from the rise of global warming and the consequent damage to our climate balance, to the loss of living species and the depletion of ocean fisheries and forest habitats — continues at a frightening rate. Practically every day, it becomes clearer to us that must act now to protect our Earth, while preserving and creating jobs for our people.
And at the very same time that these threats are developing, the traditional nation-state itself is changing — as power moves upwards and downwards, to everything from supra-national organizations and coalitions all the way down to feuding clans. Susceptible to tyrants willing to exploit ethnic and religious rivalries, the weakest of these states have either imploded into civil war or threatened to lash out across their borders.
To meet these challenges requires cooperation on a scale not seen before. A realistic reading of the world today demands reinvigorated international and regional institutions. It demands that we confront threats before they spiral out of the control. And it requires American leadership — to protect our interests and uphold our values.

„Let me be clear: promoting prosperity throughout the world is a crucial form of forward engagement.“

—  Al Gore

Quotes, IPI speech (2000)
Contesto: I believe that now we have a profound responsibility to open the gates of opportunity for all the world's people so that they can become stakeholders in the kind of society we would like to build at large in the world and at home. Let me be clear: promoting prosperity throughout the world is a crucial form of forward engagement.
We know how to launch this renaissance — for what has worked to spark the economic boom here in the United States is, at its essence, the way we can spark the fires of growth abroad. The difference is one of degree, not kind.

„But what we're pretending doesn't exist is the stuff that is destroying the habitability of the planet.“

—  Al Gore

Quotes, NYU Law School speech (2006)
Contesto: For the last fourteen years, I have advocated the elimination of all payroll taxes — including those for social security and unemployment compensation — and the replacement of that revenue in the form of pollution taxes — principally on CO2. The overall level of taxation would remain exactly the same. It would be, in other words, a revenue neutral tax swap. But, instead of discouraging businesses from hiring more employees, it would discourage business from producing more pollution.
Global warming pollution, indeed all pollution, is now described by economists as an "externality." This absurd label means, in essence: we don't need to keep track of this stuff so let's pretend it doesn't exist.
And sure enough, when it's not recognized in the marketplace, it does make it much easier for government, business, and all the rest of us to pretend that it doesn't exist. But what we're pretending doesn't exist is the stuff that is destroying the habitability of the planet.

„No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.“

—  Al Gore

Quotes, Concession speech (2000)
Contesto: I've seen America in this campaign, and I like what I see. It's worth fighting for and that's a fight I'll never stop. As for the battle that ends tonight, I do believe, as my father once said, that "No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shape the soul and let the glory out."
