But with the power of the internet and social networking, more and more people are becoming familiar with facts and figures related to climate change.
Mankind is facing an ultimatum — economic stability or environmental health.
Al Gore explains that if we choose one, we lose the other. Apparently our transition from fossil fuels to clean energy will not be neither easy, nor rapid.Another problem is that women's clothes are too damn cold.
