ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Al Gore - Climate advocate
Nobel Laureate Al Gore focused the world’s attention on the global climate crisis. Now he’s showing us how we’re moving towards real solutions.

Why you should listen

Former Vice President Al Gore is co-founder and chairman of Generation Investment Management. While he’s is a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and a member of Apple, Inc.’s board of directors, Gore spends the majority of his time as chair of The Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit devoted to solving the climate crisis.

He is the author of the bestsellers Earth in the Balance, An Inconvenient Truth, The Assault on Reason, Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, and most recently, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change. He is the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth and is the co-recipient, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 for “informing the world of the dangers posed by climate change.”

Gore was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976, 1978, 1980 and 1982 and the U.S. Senate in 1984 and 1990. He was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States on January 20, 1993, and served eight years.

sa fiu pe aceasta scena pentru a doua oara. Sunt foarte recunoscator pentru asta.

I'm extremely grateful.

Am fost foarte impresionat de aceasta conferinta si as vrea sa multumesc tuturor pentru numeroasele
00:36
I have been blown away by this conference,

00:39
and I want to thank all of you
for the many nice comments

comentarii frumoase despre ce am spus seara trecuta.
00:45
about what I had to say the other night.
5
20804
2172
00:47
And I say that sincerely,
6
23000
2875
Si va spun asta sincer pentru ca-- (oftat ironic) -- am nevoie de asta! (Rasete)
00:50
partly because (Mock sob)
7
25899
1964
00:52
I need that.
8
27887
1151
00:53
(Laughter)
9
29062
5857
00:59
Put yourselves in my position.

Puneti-va in locul meu!

Am zburat cu Air Force 2 timp de opt ani.
01:08
I flew on Air Force Two for eight years.

Now I have to take off my shoes
or boots to get on an airplane!
14

Acum trebuie sa ma descalt ca sa pot urca intr-un avion!

Va voi spune o scurta poveste ca sa ilustrez cum a fost totul pentru mine.
01:25
I'll tell you one quick story
17
60589
1723
01:27
to illustrate what
that's been like for me.
18
62336
3119
01:30
(Laughter)
19
65479
1521
Este o poveste adevarata pana in cele mai mici detalii.
01:31
It's a true story --
every bit of this is true.
20

La scurt timp dupa ce eu si Tipper am parasit --(oftat ironic) -- Casa Alba-- (Rasete)
01:34
Soon after Tipper and I left the --
(Mock sob) White House --
21
70158
3585
01:38
(Laughter)
22
73767
2018
01:40
we were driving from our home
in Nashville to a little farm we have
23
75809
4915
am plecat de acasa din Nashville catre o mica ferma de-a noastra
01:45
50 miles east of Nashville.
24
80748
1991
la 80 km de Nashville --
01:48
Driving ourselves.
25
84000
1490
doar noi doi. (Rasete)
01:50
(Laughter)
26
85514
2462
01:52
I know it sounds like
a little thing to you, but --
27
88000
2717
Stiu ca nu-i mare lucru pentru voi, dar --(Rasete)--
01:55
(Laughter)
28
90741
5469
m-am uitat in oglinda retrovizoare si dintr-o data m-a lovit realitatea.
02:01
I looked in the rear-view mirror
29
96234
5707
02:06
and all of a sudden it just hit me.
30
101965
3206
Nu ne insotea nicio escorta oficiala.
02:09
There was no motorcade back there.
31
105195
1636
02:11
(Laughter)
32
106855
2654
Ati auzit de durerile cauzate de membrele amputate? (Rasete)
02:14
You've heard of phantom limb pain?
33
109533
1993
02:16
(Laughter)
34

Conduceam un Ford Taurus inchiriat. Era deja timpul pentru cina,
02:21
This was a rented Ford Taurus.
35
116386
4216
02:25
(Laughter)
36
120626
2504
02:27
It was dinnertime,
37
123154
2006
asa ca am inceput sa cautam un local unde sa mancam.
02:29
and we started looking for a place to eat.
38
125184
2920
Am luat-o pe autostrada I-40. Am ajuns la iesirea 238, Lebanon, Tennessee.
02:33
We were on I-40.
39
128588
1405
02:34
We got to Exit 238, Lebanon, Tennessee.
40
130017
3197
Am iesit si am inceput sa cautam -- am gasit un restaurant Shoney.
02:38
We got off the exit,
we found a Shoney's restaurant.
41
133238
3688
Apartine unui lant de restaurante ieftine, pentru aceia din voi care nu stiu.
02:41
Low-cost family restaurant chain,
for those of you who don't know it.
42
136950
4039
02:46
We went in and sat down at the booth,
and the waitress came over,
43
141877
4435
Am intrat si ne-am asezat la masa, si chelnerita a venit la noi,
si s-a agitat cand a recunoscut-o pe Tipper. (Rasete)
02:51
made a big commotion over Tipper.
44
146336
1986
02:53
(Laughter)
45
148346
2463
02:55
She took our order, and then went
to the couple in the booth next to us,
46
150833
3420
Ne-a luat comanda si s-a dus la perechea care se afla langa noi,
vorbind atat de incet incat a trebuit sa ma chinui sa inteleg ce zicea.
02:59
and she lowered her voice so much,
47
154277
2104
03:01
I had to really strain to hear
what she was saying.
48
156405
3001
Si a spus: "Da, asta e fostul vice-presedinte Al Gore si Tipper, sotia lui."
03:04
And she said "Yes, that's former
Vice President Al Gore
49
159430
2679
03:06
and his wife, Tipper."
50
162133
1843
03:08
And the man said,
51
164000
1527
Si barbatul i-a raspuns: "A decazut mult, nu-i asa?" (Rasete)
03:10
"He's come down a long way, hasn't he?"
52
165551
2192
03:12
(Laughter)
53
167767
4908
03:17
(Applause)
54
172699
4277
03:21
There's been kind
of a series of epiphanies.
55
177000
3119
A fost un fel de insiruire de revelatii.
03:24
(Laughter)
56
180143
1144
Chiar a doua zi, continuand o poveste absolut adevarata,
03:26
The very next day,
continuing the totally true story,
57
181311
3665
03:29
I got on a G-V to fly to Africa
to make a speech in Nigeria,
58
185000
5976
m-am urcat intr-un G-5 sa zbor catre Africa, pentru a tine un discurs in Nigeria,
03:35
in the city of Lagos,
on the topic of energy.
59
191000
2856
in orasul Lagos, pe tema energiei.
Mi-am inceput discursul istorisind ce mi se intamplase
03:39
And I began the speech
by telling them the story
60
194301
3796
03:42
of what had just happened
the day before in Nashville.
61
198121
2713
deunazi in Nashville.
Si am povestit intamplarile cam asa cum vi le-am spus si voua.
03:45
And I told it pretty much the same way
I've just shared it with you:
62
201196
3306
03:49
Tipper and I were driving ourselves,
63
204526
1738
Eu si cu Tipper calatorind neinsotiti, lantul de restaurante ieftine Shoney,
03:51
Shoney's, low-cost
family restaurant chain,
64
206288
2038
ce a raspuns barbatul chelneritei -- au ras.
03:53
what the man said -- they laughed.
65
208350
1933
03:55
I gave my speech, then went back
out to the airport to fly back home.
66
210703
3583
Mi-am tinut discursul, apoi m-am intors la aeroport pentru a zbura inapoi catre casa.
Am adormit in avion, pana catre miezul noptii,
03:59
I fell asleep on the plane
67
214310
1866
04:01
until, during the middle
of the night, we landed
68
216200
2538
cand am aterizat in insulele Azore pentru a alimenta avionul.
04:03
on the Azores Islands for refueling.
69
218762
2214
M-am trezit, au deschis usa si am iesit sa iau aer,
04:06
I woke up, they opened the door,
I went out to get some fresh air,
70
221364
3112
si am observat un barbat alergand pe pista.
04:09
and I looked, and there was a man
running across the runway.
71
224500
3476
04:12
And he was waving a piece
of paper, and he was yelling,
72
228000
3055
Flutura o bucata de hartie si striga,
"Sunati la Washinton! Sunati la Washington!"
04:15
"Call Washington! Call Washington!"
73
231079
4074
04:20
And I thought to myself,
in the middle of the night,
74
235981
2445
Si m-am gandit: in toiul noptii, in mijlocul Atlanticului,
ce naiba s-ar fi putut intampla rau la Washington?
04:23
in the middle of the Atlantic,
75
238450
1436
04:24
what in the world could be
wrong in Washington?
76
239910
2220
Apoi mi-am amintit ca, rele, puteau fi o gramada de lucruri.
(Rasete)
04:26
Then I remembered
it could be a bunch of things.
77
242154
2261
04:29
(Laughter)
78
244439
5537
04:34
But what it turned out to be,
79
250000
1927
Dar s-a dovedit ca de fapt cei din personalul meu erau foarte suparati pentru ca
04:36
was that my staff was extremely upset
80
251951
3311
04:40
because one of the wire services
in Nigeria had already written a story
81
255286
6202
una din agentiile de presa nigeriene scrisese deja o stire despre discursul meu.
04:46
about my speech,
82
261512
1420
04:47
and it had already been printed in cities
83
262956
1976
Si fusese deja tiparita in toate orasele din SUA --
04:49
all across the United States of America.
84
264956
2332
fusese tiparita la Monterey, am verificat. Si stirea incepea astfel:
04:52
It was printed in Monterey, I checked.
85
267312
1828
04:53
(Laughter)
86
269164
1150
04:55
And the story began,
87
270553
2661
"Fostul vicepresedinte Al Gore a declarat ieri in Nigeria:
04:58
"Former Vice President Al Gore
announced in Nigeria yesterday," quote:
88
273238
4293
"Eu si sotia mea Tipper am deschis un restaurant de familie ieftin, numit Shoney's,
05:02
'My wife Tipper and I have opened
a low-cost family restaurant'" --
89
277555
3629
05:06
(Laughter)
90
281208
1642
05:07
"'named Shoney's,
91
282874
1348
pe care il deserveam noi insine." (Rasete)
05:09
and we are running it ourselves.'"
92
284246
1799
05:10
(Laughter)
93
286069
3320
Inca inainte de a ajunge pe pamant american,
05:14
Before I could get back to U.S. soil,
94
289413
2158
David Letterman si Jay Leno deja incepusera
05:16
David Letterman and Jay Leno
had already started in on --
95
291595
4114
05:20
one of them had me
in a big white chef's hat,
96
295733
3243
-- unul din ei ma aratau cu o palarie mare si alba de bucatar sef
05:23
Tipper was saying,
"One more burger with fries!"
97
299000
2429
si Tipper prelua comanda: "Inca un burger cu cartofi prajiti!"
05:26
(Laughter)
98
301453
1047
Trei zile mai tarziu am primit o scrisoare lunga, scrisa de mana de la prietenul, partenerul
05:27
Three days later,
99
302524
1282
05:28
I got a nice, long, handwritten letter
100
303830
2739
05:31
from my friend and partner
and colleague Bill Clinton, saying,
101
306593
3421
si colegul meu Bill Clinton in care-mi transmitea : "Felicitari pentru noul restaurant, Al!"
05:34
"Congratulations
on the new restaurant, Al!"
102
310038
2396
(Rasete)
05:37
(Laughter)
103
312458
6673
Ne place sa ne sarbatorim reusitele in viata.
05:43
We like to celebrate
each other's successes in life.
104
319155
3137
05:47
(Laughter)
105
322316
5397
Urma sa va vorbesc despre ecologia informationala.
05:53
I was going to talk
about information ecology.
106
328606
2547
Dar cum intentionez ca prezenta mea la TED sa devina o traditie indelungata,
05:55
But I was thinking that,
107
331177
2018
05:58
since I plan to make a lifelong habit
of coming back to TED,
108
333219
3757
06:01
that maybe I could talk
about that another time.
109
337000
2693
va voi vorbi poate despre asta cu alta ocazie. (Aplauze)
06:04
(Applause)
110
339717
1400
Chris Anderson: Ramane stabilit!
06:05
Chris Anderson: It's a deal!
111
341141
1397
06:07
(Applause)
112
342562
2626
Al Gore: As vrea sa ma concentrez asupra unui subiect pe care multi din voi m-au rugat sa-l elaborez.
06:10
Al Gore: I want to focus
on what many of you have said
113
345212
4518
06:14
you would like me to elaborate on:
114
349754
1866
Ce puteti face voi impotriva crizei climatice? As vrea sa incep cu --
06:16
What can you do about the climate crisis?
115
351644
3817
06:21
I want to start with a couple of --
116
356317
3339
Voi prezenta niste imagini noi, dintre care voi relua doar patru sau cinci.
06:24
I'm going to show some new images,
117
359680
2569
06:27
and I'm going to recapitulate
just four or five.
118
362273
5123
Acum, despre slide show. Updatez slide show-ul la fiecare prezentare.
06:32
Now, the slide show.
119
368075
1572
06:34
I update the slide show
every time I give it.
120
369671
3305
06:37
I add new images,
121
373000
1237
Adaug noi imagini pentru ca invat cate ceva de fiecare data cand fac prezentarea.
06:39
because I learn more about it
every time I give it.
122
374261
2905
06:42
It's like beach-combing, you know?
123
377823
1951
E ca si culesul scoicilor pe plaja. La fiecare flux si reflux,
06:44
Every time the tide comes in and out,
you find some more shells.
124
379798
3178
apar alte scoici.
06:47
Just in the last two days, we got
the new temperature records in January.
125
383000
5983
Chiar in ultimele doua zile am primit noile inregistrari de temperaturi pentru ianuarie.
Si asta numai pentru SUA. Temperatura medie istorica pentru
06:53
This is just for
the United States of America.
126
389007
3010
06:56
Historical average
for Januarys is 31 degrees;
127
392041
2738
ianuarie este 0 grade C. Luna trecuta s-au inregistrat 4 grade C.
06:59
last month was 39.5 degrees.
128
394803
3684
07:03
Now, I know that you wanted some more
bad news about the environment --
129
398932
4813
Acum, stiu ca ati mai vrut niste vesti proaste despre mediu
07:08
I'm kidding.
130
403769
1168
-- glumesc -- dar acestea sunt slide-uri de recapitulare,
07:10
But these are the recapitulation slides,
131
405404
3056
dupa care voi prezenta noul material despre ce puteti face voi.
07:13
and then I'm going to go into new
material about what you can do.
132
408484
3394
07:16
But I wanted to elaborate
on a couple of these.
133
411902
2395
Am vrut sa mai insist totusi asupra unor slide-uri.
In primul rand, iata unde e proiectat sa aducem contributia SUA la incalzirea globala, in conditiile economice prezente.
07:19
First of all, this is where
we're projected to go
134
414321
3311
07:22
with the U.S. contribution
to global warming,
135
417656
2102
Eficienta consumatorilor in utilizarea energiei electrice sau orice alt tip
07:24
under business as usual.
136
419782
1784
07:26
Efficiency in end-use electricity
and end-use of all energy
137
421590
5386
07:31
is the low-hanging fruit.
138
427000
1624
e de fapt aspectul esential. Eficienta si conservarea
07:33
Efficiency and conservation --
it's not a cost; it's a profit.
139
428648
4504
privite nu ca un cost ci ca profit !!
07:37
The sign is wrong.
140
433176
2677
07:40
It's not negative; it's positive.
141
435877
2143
Semnul aici e gresit, e plus, nu minus. Sunt investitii care se acopera singure.
07:42
These are investments
that pay for themselves.
142
438044
2840
07:45
But they are also very effective
in deflecting our path.
143
440908
3871
Dar sunt si foarte capabile sa ne devieze directia.
Masini si camioane -- Am tratat subiectul in slideshow,
07:50
Cars and trucks -- I talked
about that in the slideshow,
144
445620
3995
dar vreau sa abordez o alta perspectiva.
07:54
but I want you to put it in perspective.
145
449639
2492
07:57
It's an easy, visible target of concern --
146
452893
4597
Este o cauza vizibila de ingrijorare, si ar trebui sa fie,
08:02
and it should be --
147
457514
1462
08:03
but there is more global warming pollution
that comes from buildings
148
459000
4679
dar cladirile contribuie mult mai mult la incalzirea globala
decat masinile si camioanele.
08:08
than from cars and trucks.
149
463703
1722
08:10
Cars and trucks are very significant,
150
466000
2641
Masinile si camioanele au o pondere semnificativa, iar noi avem cele mai scazute standarde din lume,
08:13
and we have the lowest
standards in the world.
151
468665
2585
prin urmare ar trebui sa ne ocupam de asta. Dar e numai o parte a complexitatii.
08:16
And so we should address that.
But it's part of the puzzle.
152
471274
3026
Eficienta altor tipuri de transport e la fel de importanta ca cea a masinilor si a camioanelor!
08:19
Other transportation efficiency
is as important as cars and trucks.
153
474324
5361
08:24
Renewables at the current levels
of technological efficiency
154
479709
4342
Resursele regenerabile la nivelul actual de eficienta tehnologica
pot avea mare efect, si impreuna cu Vinod, John Doerr si multi altii,
08:28
can make this much difference.
155
484075
1747
08:30
And with what Vinod, and John Doerr
and others, many of you here --
156
485846
5955
prezenti aici -- multi oameni implicati direct in acest subiect --
08:36
there are a lot of people
directly involved in this --
157
491825
2567
aceasta panta va creste mult mai rapid decat arata actualele previziuni.
08:39
this wedge is going to grow
much more rapidly
158
494416
2532
08:41
than the current projection shows it.
159
496972
2187
Initialele CCS semnifica: captarea si sechestrarea dioxidului de carbon,
08:43
Carbon Capture and Sequestration --
that's what CCS stands for --
160
499183
5740
e posibil sa devina programul esential
08:49
is likely to become the killer app
that will enable us
161
504947
6815
care sa ne permita continuarea folosirii de combustibili fosili in siguranta.
08:56
to continue to use fossil fuels
in a way that is safe.
162
511786
6411
Inca nu am ajuns acolo.
09:04
Not quite there yet.
163
519459
1336
09:05
OK. Now, what can you do?
164
520819
3166
Ei bine, ce se poate face? Puteti reduce emisiile din casele voastre.
09:11
Reduce emissions in your home.
165
526495
1757
Majoritatea cheltuielilor de acest tip sunt de asemenea profitabile.
09:13
Most of these expenditures
are also profitable.
166
529022
4198
Izolatia, un design mai bun, cumpararea energiei verzi acolo unde e posibil.
09:18
Insulation, better design.
167
534007
1969
09:20
Buy green electricity where you can.
168
536000
2689
Am mentionat autovehiculele--cumparati o masina hibrid. Folositi tramvaiul.
09:24
I mentioned automobiles -- buy a hybrid.
169
539436
3810
09:28
Use light rail.
170
543270
1706
E important sa va ganditi la optiuni mai bune.
09:30
Figure out some of the other options
that are much better.
171
545505
2782
09:33
It's important.
172
548311
1165
Fiti un consumator verde. Aveti optiuni la tot ce cumparati,
09:35
Be a green consumer.
173
550254
1719
09:36
You have choices with everything you buy,
174
551997
2979
09:39
between things that have a harsh effect,
175
555000
3607
intre produse cu un efect grav sau mai putin
09:43
or a much less harsh effect
on the global climate crisis.
176
558631
5500
grav asupra crizei climatice globale.
09:49
Consider this:
177
564870
1832
Considerati decizia de-a duce o viata neutra in privinta consumului de carbon.
09:51
Make a decision to live
a carbon-neutral life.
178
566726
3252
09:55
Those of you who are good at branding,
179
570663
2434
As vrea sa primesc din partea specialistilor in branding
sfaturi, ajutor despre
09:57
I'd love to get your advice and help
180
573121
2472
exprimarea acestui subiect intr-un mod cat mai atractiv pentru oameni.
10:00
on how to say this in a way
that connects with the most people.
181
575617
6078
10:06
It is easier than you think.
182
581719
1981
Este mai usor decat va imaginati, chiar este.
10:08
It really is.
183
583724
1316
Multi dintre cei prezenti au luat deja aceasta decizie si e destul de usor.
10:12
A lot of us in here
have made that decision,
184
587223
3395
10:15
and it is really pretty easy.
185
590642
2134
10:17
It means reduce
your carbon dioxide emissions
186
592800
5927
Reduceti emisiile de dioxid de carbon printr-o larga paleta de decizii pe care le luati,
10:23
with the full range
of choices that you make,
187
598751
2696
si apoi achizitionati sau dobanditi ceva care sa echilibreze ceea ce nu ati redus in totalitate.
10:26
and then purchase or acquire offsets
188
601471
4125
10:30
for the remainder that you have not
completely reduced.
189
605620
3117
Pe climatecrisis.net gasiti o elaborare a semnificatiei acestora.
10:33
And what it means is elaborated
at climatecrisis.net.
190
608761
6490
10:40
There is a carbon calculator.
191
615755
2865
Acolo veti gasi un calculator al emisiilor de dioxid de carbon. Participant Productions a adunat,
10:44
Participant Productions convened --
192
619501
3475
10:47
with my active involvement --
193
623000
2570
prin implicarea mea, cei mai buni programatori de soft din lume
10:50
the leading software writers in the world,
194
625594
2817
pentru a realiza in aceasta esoterica stiinta a calcularii dioxidului de carbon
10:53
on this arcane science
of carbon calculation,
195
628435
3303
10:56
to construct a consumer-friendly
carbon calculator.
196
631762
4102
un calculator al coeficientului de dioxid de carbon accesibil consumatorilor.
11:01
You can very precisely calculate
what your CO2 emissions are,
197
636317
6209
Va puteti calcula cu mare precizie emisiile de dioxid de carbon,
11:07
and then you will be given
options to reduce.
198
642550
3318
si apoi veti avea optiunea de a le reduce.
11:10
And by the time the movie
comes out in May,
199
645892
3197
Si pana cand va fi gata filmul in mai, calculatorul va fi updatat deja la versiunea 2.0.
11:13
this will be updated to 2.0,
200
649113
1863
11:15
and we will have click-through
purchases of offsets.
201
651000
3434
si vom avea acces on line pentru a cumpara offset-uri ale emisiilor de dioxid de carbon.
11:19
Next, consider making
your business carbon-neutral.
202
655000
3222
In continuare, ganditi-va cum sa va faceti firma cat mai putin poluanta. Unii dintre noi deja au facut asta,
11:23
Again, some of us have done that,
203
658246
1608
11:24
and it's not as hard as you think.
204
659878
2006
si nu e atat de greu pe cat s-ar crede. Integrati solutii in toate inovatiile voastre,
11:27
Integrate climate solutions
into all of your innovations,
205
663196
4190
fie ca lucrati in domeniul tehnic, in show-biz,
11:32
whether you are from the technology,
206
667410
1913
11:34
or entertainment, or design
and architecture community.
207
669347
3629
design sau arhitectura.
11:37
Invest sustainably.
208
673000
2043
Investiti sustenabil. Majora a mentionat acest lucru.
11:39
Majora mentioned this.
209
675067
1689
Daca investiti bani in mangaeri pe care
11:42
Listen, if you have invested money
with managers who you compensate
210
677248
6792
ii platiti pe baza performantei lor anuale,
11:48
on the basis of their annual performance,
211
684064
2717
11:51
don't ever again complain
about quarterly report CEO management.
212
686805
4912
nu va mai plangeti de raportul trimestrial de evaluare a managerilor.
11:57
Over time, people do
what you pay them to do.
213
692807
2556
Treptat oamenii ajung sa faca ceea ce sunt platiti sa faca. Si daca se vor gandi la
12:01
And if they judge how much
they're going to get paid
214
696736
4693
faptul ca sunt platiti din capitalul investit de voi
12:06
on your capital that they've invested,
215
701453
3300
12:09
based on the short-term returns,
216
704777
1943
pe termen scurt vor lua si ei niste decizii pe termen scurt.
12:11
you're going to get short-term decisions.
217
706744
2316
12:15
A lot more to be said about that.
218
710999
1613
Ar fi multe de spus despre acest aspect.
12:17
Become a catalyst of change.
219
712636
1746
Deveniti un catalizator al schimbarii. Predati, invatati, vorbiti despre asta.
12:19
Teach others, learn about it,
talk about it.
220
714406
3635
Filmul apare -- este o versiune de lung metraj a slideshow-ului
12:24
The movie is a movie version
of the slideshow
221
719263
3405
prezentat de mine acum doua seri, doar ca e mai atractiv. Va aparea in mai.
12:27
I gave two nights ago,
except it's a lot more entertaining.
222
722692
2919
12:31
And it comes out in May.
223
726694
2147
12:34
Many of you here have the opportunity
to ensure that a lot of people see it.
224
729437
3961
Multi din cei prezenti aveti ocazia de-a coopera pentru ca oamenii sa-l vada.
Ganditi-va sa trimiteti pe cineva la Nashville. Alegeti cu atentie.
12:39
Consider sending somebody to Nashville.
225
735106
3603
12:44
Pick well.
226
739390
1155
Voi pregati personal persoane care sa prezinte slideshow-ul, redirectionat,
12:46
And I am personally going to train people
to give this slideshow --
227
741381
4446
12:50
re-purposed, with some
of the personal stories obviously replaced
228
745851
4755
inlocuind, fireste, povestile personale cu o abordare generala
12:55
with a generic approach,
229
750630
2070
si nu e vorba numai de slide-uri, ci de semnificatia lor, de cum se leaga intre ele.
12:57
and it's not just the slides,
it's what they mean.
230
752724
2699
13:00
And it's how they link together.
231
755447
1601
Asa ca voi tine un curs vara asta
13:01
And so I'm going to be conducting
a course this summer
232
757072
4587
cu un grup de persoane care la randul lor vor tine cursul
13:06
for a group of people that are
nominated by different folks
233
761683
3835
13:10
to come and then give it en masse,
234
765542
2229
in masa, in toate comunitatile din tara
13:12
in communities all across the country,
235
767795
2181
13:14
and we're going to update the slideshow
for all of them every single week,
236
770000
4665
si vom actualiza saptamanal slideshow-ul,
sa aiba cele mai noi informatii in domeniu.
13:19
to keep it right on the cutting edge.
237
774689
3031
Proiectul meu cu Larry va avea mijloace
13:22
Working with Larry Lessig, it will be,
somewhere in that process,
238
777744
3881
si drepturi limitate de copyright,
13:26
posted with tools
and limited-use copyrights,
239
781649
4835
pentru ca tinerii sa-l poata modifica si prezenta in propriul lor stil.
13:31
so that young people can remix it
and do it in their own way.
240
786508
5468
13:36
(Applause)
241
792000
3146
(Aplauze)
De unde a aparut ideea ca trebuie sa mentii distanta fata de politica?
13:39
Where did anybody get the idea
242
795170
1490
13:41
that you ought to stay
arm's length from politics?
243
796684
2352
Daca esti republican nu inseamna ca incerc sa te conving sa devii democrat.
13:43
It doesn't mean
that if you're a Republican,
244
799060
2090
13:45
that I'm trying to convince you
to be a Democrat.
245
801174
2324
Avem nevoie si de republicani. Obisnuia sa fie un aspect care privea ambele partide,
13:48
We need Republicans as well.
246
803935
1505
13:50
This used to be a bipartisan issue,
247
805464
2009
si stiu ca in acest grup, chiar asa e. Deveniti activi politic.
13:52
and I know that
in this group it really is.
248
807497
2457
13:54
Become politically active.
249
809978
1552
Ajutati democratia sa functioneze cum ar trebui.
13:56
Make our democracy work the way
it's supposed to work.
250
811554
2873
Sustineti ideea de limitare a emisiilor de dioxid de carbon, a poluarii globale,
13:59
Support the idea of capping
carbon dioxide emissions --
251
814753
5549
14:05
global warming pollution --
and trading it.
252
820326
2015
si comercializarea acestora. Iata motivul: atat timp cat SUA ramane in afara sistemului international,
14:07
Here's why: as long as the United States
is out of the world system,
253
822365
4611
14:11
it's not a closed system.
254
827000
1668
cercul nu e inchis.
14:13
Once it becomes a closed system,
with U.S. participation,
255
828692
4047
Odata ce devine un sistem inchis prin participarea SUA,
14:17
then everybody
who's on a board of directors --
256
832763
2223
orice membru al consiliului directoral --
-- cati dintre voi apartineti unui consiliu directoral al unei corporatii?
14:19
how many people here
serve on the board of directors
257
835010
2989
14:22
of a corporation?
258
838023
1254
In momentul cand devine un sistem inchis, veti fi raspunzatori in fata legii daca nu impuneti managerilor
14:25
Once it's a closed system,
259
840415
1426
14:26
you will have legal liability
if you do not urge your CEO
260
841865
6237
sa maximizeze veniturile din reducerea si comercializarea emisiilor de carbon
14:32
to get the maximum income from reducing
and trading the carbon emissions
261
848126
4127
ce pot fi evitate. Piata va rezolva apoi problema daca realizam asta.
14:37
that can be avoided.
262
852277
1309
14:38
The market will work
to solve this problem --
263
853610
2665
14:43
if we can accomplish this.
264
858949
2217
Ajutati la campania de promovare in masa care va incepe in aceasta primavara.
14:47
Help with the mass persuasion campaign
that will start this spring.
265
862434
3385
14:50
We have to change the minds
of the American people.
266
865843
2508
Trebuie sa schimbam mentalitatea poporului american. Pentru ca in prezent
14:53
Because presently, the politicians
do not have permission
267
868375
2759
politicienilor nu le e permis sa faca ce trebuie facut.
14:55
to do what needs to be done.
268
871158
1919
Si in tara noastra moderna, rolul logicii si al ratiunii nu mai include
14:58
And in our modern country, the role
of logic and reason no longer includes
269
873355
5454
15:03
mediating between wealth and power
the way it once did.
270
878833
2954
medierea intre bogatie si putere ca altadata.
15:06
It's now repetition of short, hot-button,
30-second, 28-second television ads.
271
881811
5560
Acum doar se repeta la nesfarsit reclame TV de 28, 30 de secunde.
Trebuie sa cumparam mare parte din spatiul alocat acelor recalame TV.
15:12
We have to buy a lot of those ads.
272
887395
1858
Haideti sa re-denumim incalzirea globala, dupa cum multi ati propus.
15:15
Let's re-brand global warming,
as many of you have suggested.
273
890221
4310
15:19
I like "climate crisis"
instead of "climate collapse,"
274
894555
2869
Prefer 'criza climatica' in loc de 'colaps climatic',
dar am nevoie de ajutorul specialistilor de marca.
15:22
but again, those of you
who are good at branding,
275
897448
2327
15:24
I need your help on this.
276
899799
1405
Cineva mi-a spus, un om de stiinta, ca testul la care suntem acum supusi
15:26
Somebody said the test
we're facing now, a scientist told me,
277
901768
4100
consta in intrebarea daca un deget mare opozabil
15:30
is whether the combination
of an opposable thumb
278
905892
3084
15:33
and a neocortex is a viable combination.
279
909000
2817
si un neocortex reprezinta o combinatie viabila.
15:36
(Laughter)
280
911947
1499
E adevarat. Am spus aseara si vreau sa repet: nu e o chestiune politica.
15:38
That's really true.
281
913825
1557
15:42
I said the other night,
and I'll repeat now:
282
918160
3400
15:46
this is not a political issue.
283
921584
2165
15:48
Again, the Republicans here --
this shouldn't be partisan.
284
923773
5539
Din nou, ma adresez republicanilor prezenti, n-ar trebui sa depinda de partid.
Aveti o influenta mai mare decat unii dintre noi, democrati.
15:54
You have more influence
than some of us who are Democrats do.
285
929336
3640
E o oportunitate. Nu numai asta, dar legat de ideile de aici,
15:58
This is an opportunity.
286
933421
1476
15:59
Not just this, but connected
to the ideas that are here,
287
934921
4852
16:04
to bring more coherence to them.
288
939797
1928
de a le da mai multa coerenta.
Suntem toti unul si acelasi.
16:07
We are one.
289
942495
1166
Va multumesc foarte mult.
16:08
Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
290
944065
2335
16:11
(Applause)

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Al Gore - Climate advocate
Nobel Laureate Al Gore focused the world’s attention on the global climate crisis. Now he’s showing us how we’re moving towards real solutions.

Why you should listen

Former Vice President Al Gore is co-founder and chairman of Generation Investment Management. While he’s is a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and a member of Apple, Inc.’s board of directors, Gore spends the majority of his time as chair of The Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit devoted to solving the climate crisis.

He is the author of the bestsellers Earth in the Balance, An Inconvenient Truth, The Assault on Reason, Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, and most recently, The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change. He is the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth and is the co-recipient, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 for “informing the world of the dangers posed by climate change.”

Gore was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976, 1978, 1980 and 1982 and the U.S. Senate in 1984 and 1990. He was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States on January 20, 1993, and served eight years.
