    Graduation Speech Class of 2099

     
    While searching the Internet for information that I could use for green technology project that I'm working on, I came across this youtube video by a climate activist in Taipei, Taiwan.  His perspective is interesting because it's set in the year 2099.  He uses a college commencement speech in Boston as the forum to express his message.  At that time, he suggests the ubiquitous nature of the term, "climate crisis," as though 90 years from now, our climate situation has steadily worsened, and it being in a "crisis" is known by all.  His key message, one that I whole-heartedly agree, is that we as a population need to sever our dependence on dirty fossil fuels.
    This gentleman asks several thought-provoking questions regarding global warming and our consumptive habits.  Plus he provides seven (7) important words - we must tighten the noose around coal.
    This is a serious and provocative message.  As the college graduation season nears, some schools may want to consider showing this video to their graduates.
    Click on the following link to see the Graduation Speech in it's entirety.
