By: Rebecca Byers - Published: • References: algore & youtu.be
Former US Vice President Al Gore delivers a poignant and humorous speech to the graduating class of 2008 at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University. In this entertaining speech, Al Gore refers to himself as the “former next president of the United States” and a “recovering politician on step nine,” and relates the experience to that of one with much “emotional whiplash” after going from riding on Air Force 2 to having to take off his shoes before he boards a plane.

Al Gore discusses climate change and the efforts of CMU and Pittsburgh, as well other innovative US colleges working to better understand CO2 emissions and the challenges of combating global warming. According to Al Gore, Pittsburgh is a leader in investing in environmentally friendly technology such as wind power and building green buildings.
