Well, hopefully I will be alweold to give some advice regarding winning this conversation. I have been out on the Internet since this event and I can tell you that much of what I have seen is negative outweighing positive so far. So what I have done on my own now as I did when Mr. Gore ran for president and also when he was first giving these presentations, I have been going out to these sites that print misinformation and lies about him or the science behind global warming ( I call it biodistress btw) and setting them straight because this is where it begins. For years many sites and papers have been printing misinformation and their comment sections have been filled with nothing but acidity and outright hatred towards Mr. Gore in an attempt to make people think that if they can discredit him they discredit global warming. And unfortunately, it apparently has been a tactic that has worked here because they know many don't know much about the science and they believe it and no one is countering it for the most part. I truly think there needs to be a media rapid response group that goes out to these sites and newspapers to give back what they give, only to give truthful information. Not to engage the trolls but to just make sure the information is out there. You can't win the conversation unfortunately and especially in the US with just a slideshow regardless of how accurate and well presented it is. And when you have cult leaders like Alex Jones out here on You Tube spewing outright lies with people like Christopher Monckton on there spreading nothing but lies about the sea levels not rising and the ice in the Arctic growing back while this even was going on that hundreds will see and believe, this battle is not just in a slideshow presentation. I truly think that needs to be a consideration. You have to nip it at the source too.Also, just one more comment about the event and then I will get my off my soap box. This event was seen on the Internet globally and in all honesty I think it was a mistake to ask people to donate every hour, especially considering that there may well have been people globally watching this on any type of connection they could get who live on less than a dollar a day in a place where people standing at a podium in high heel Gucci shoes and fancy dresses does not resinate. I think in order to get the message across effectively you also have to be aware of your entire audience and that many of the people watching this who are already experiencing the effects of biodistress are poor. As it is in the US the unemployment rate is over 9% and the poverty rate is increasing. The world economy teters on a precipice. It might just be to your advantage if pushing the donation wasn't the primary focus because frankly out here on the Internet as well, people think this was done just for the money. I know that isn't true but millions don't. I also think it would have been noble of you to state that half of the donations would be donated to Somalia to help the famine victims since their drought is a classic case of climate change. Their droughts which used to come every ten years now come every two to five years with more severity. The Indian Ocean is also warming and changing rainfall patterns. This is a classic scenario of climate change now causing mass famine and migration in a place where war has been going on for over twenty years. A look at the future if we don't get our act together, but not one mention of this though in you presentation. You may even have gotten more donations because there are those who are looking for a way to help there that they can trust. OK, so I'm done. I just think the message needs to be the primary focus and gets to as many as possible in as down to Earth a way as it can be, because I care about the world my son is going to live in as well as his children to come and all of us.Thanks.
