Al Gore speaks for the first time about Australia's action on climate change. This is his endorsement for our newest report, The Critical Decade: International action on climate change.
"This report comes at a crucial time and carries with it an important message; we must act collectively to solve the climate crisis and we must act now.
The consequences of the climate crisis, of course, are already visible all around the world and some of the worst, unfortunately, can be seen in Australia over the last few years. From the massive flooding that inundated large portions of Queensland two winters ago and the echo of it last winter, to the wildfires that captured the attention of the world when they ripped across the country in 2009.
Australia is one of the proverbial canaries in the coalmine of the climate crisis, and scientists long warned that this might well become the case. But just as that canary once warned of toxic gas build-up in coal mines, Australia today is one of the places that is serving as an early alert signal for the planet as a whole. And the message is clear, we have to reduce our emissions or risk an unimaginable catastrophe. The consequences that have already occurred are bad enough but the scientists tell us that much more will come or would come if we did not act.
The climate crisis of course is not the struggle of an individual nation or government, it is a global challenge and therefore in order to solve it we have to act together
Toward that end, I salute Australia's strong commitment to solving the climate crisis and I know that it's going to continue to be a crucial player in building a global solution to this global problem. So to all of you - congratulations and god speed."
