Recent Studies on Global Warming

Yesterday I came across a speech given by Al Gore on the recent discoveries on global warming. Here is the link to his speech:

Al Gore, Sep. 18, 2006, NYU Law School.

He states how the American Institute of Architecture and the National Conference of Mayors have endorsed the "2030 Challenge," asking the global architecture and building community to immediately transform building design to require that all new buildings and developments be designed to use one half the fossil fuel energy they would typically consume for each building type, and that all new buildings be carbon neutral by 2030, using zero fossil fuels to operate.

I find what he said to be very moving, and an eye opener to what our situation really is, and how we need to start changes now or it will be too late for our children to have a chance.
