I hope everyone had an opportunity to hear or to read Al Gore's acceptance speech yesterday upon receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. It was impressive, important, and beautifully delivered. Do take a few minutes to read it.

If the link does not work for you, I'm certain that just going to the Nobel website will get you there eventually.

Thank you for posting this Georgia! Speech of a lifetime, or rather all lifetimes from now on.

Yesterday while cleaning out boxes for our move to Australia I came across a Time magazine from 1989. I kept it because it was about the Planet and thought my children would enjoy reading it someday. Inside was a very young looking Al Gore and the article was about his speech on Global warming......in 1989.
