Al Gore Says 'We Will Prevail' in Fight Against Climate Change
Al Gore is bullish on the future of humanity and our ability to confront climate change, telling the TED conference in Vancouver, "We are going to win this. We will prevail."
It's been 10 years since Gore's first TED Talk, when he delivered a slide show about the climate crisis, months before the release of Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
On Wednesday, he brought good news about the exponential adoption of solar and other renewable energy sources, the closing of U.S. coal plants and the Paris climate agreement last November.
"This is the biggest new business opportunity in the history of the world," he said to the auditorium packed with Silicon Valley investors and Hollywood executives.
