"Last year, I showed these two slides that demonstrate that the Arctic ice cap which for most of the last 3,000,000 years has been the size of the lower 48 States has shrunk by 40% but this understates the seriousness of this particular problem because it doesn't show the thickness of the ice. The Arctic ice cap is in a sense of the beating heart of the global climate system, it expands in winter and contracts in summer. The next slide I show you will be a rapid fast forward of what's happened over the last 20 years. The permanent ice is marked in red. And as you see, it expands to the dark blue that's the annualized and winner and it contracts in summer and the so called permanent is five years old or older. You can see it's almost like blood spilling out of the body here in 25 years it's gone from this to this. This is a problem because the warming heats up the frozen ground around the Arctic Ocean where there is a massive amount of frozen carbon, which when it saw is turned into methane by microbes compared to the total amount of global warming pollution in the atmosphere that amount could double if we cross this tipping point already in some shallow lakes in Alaska, methane is actively bubbling up out of the water. Professor Katie Walter from the University of Alaska went out with another team to another shallow lake last winter she's OK, the question is whether we will be and one reason is this enormous heatsink heats up Greenland from the North. This is an annual melting river but the volumes are much larger than ever. This is the Kanga Lusi river in South West Greenland. If you want to know how sea level rises from land based ice melting. This is where it reaches the sea. These flows are increasing very rapidly at the other end of the planet Antarctica, the largest mass of ice on the planet last month, scientists reported the entire continent is now a negative ice balance and West Antarctica propped up on tops of undersea islands is particularly rapid in its melting that's equal to 20 feet of sea level. As is Greenland in the as the third largest mass of ice at the top? You see new lakes which a few years ago were glaciers. 40% of all the people in the world get half of their drinking water from that melting flow in the Andes. This glacier is the source of drinking water for this city. The flows have increased but when they go away, so does much of the drinking water in California there's been a 40% decline in the Sierra snowpack. This is hitting the reservoirs and the predictions as you've read are serious. This drying around the world has led to a dramatic increase in fires and the disasters around the world. Have been increasing at an absolutely extraordinary. An unprecedented rate four times as many in the last 30 years. As in the previous 75 this is a completely unsustainable pattern if you look at it in the context of history, you can see what this is doing in the last five years. We've added 70,000,000 tons of CO two every 24 hours, 25,000,000 tons every day to the oceans. Look carefully at the area of the eastern Pacific from the America's extending westward and on either side. Of the Indian subcontinent where there is radical depletion of action in the oceans. The biggest single cause of global warming along with deforestation, which is 20% of it. Is the burning of fossil fuels oil is a problem and coal is the most serious problem. The United States is one of the two largest emitters along with China and the proposal has been to build a lot more call plants but we're beginning to see a sea change. Here are the ones that have been canceled in the last few years with some green alternatives of proposed, however, there is a political battle in our country and the coal industry and the oil industry is spent a quarter of a billion dollars in the last calendar year promoting clean coal, which is an oxymoron. That image reminded me of something around Christmas in my home in Tennessee, a billion gallons of coal sludge was spilled. He probably saw it on the news. This all over the country is the second largest wave stream in America, this happened around Christmas. One of the coal industries ads around Christmas was this one. This is the source of much of the coal in West Virginia the largest mountaintop minor is of mass. Cole, let me be clear about Algonac Pelosi. He read I don't know what they're talking about. So the Alliance for climate protection has launched two campaigns. This is one of them. Part of one of them hole. We view climate change as a very serious threat to our business that's why we've made it our primary goal to spend a large sum of money on an advertising effort to help bring out and complicate the truth about coal. The fact, it is cold isn't dirty. We think it's clean smells good, too. So don't worry about climate change. Leave that up to us being cold you've heard a lot about it, so let's take a tour of the state of the art, clean, coal facility. Amazing Mary's got allowed with that to some to clean cold technology. And while many call is one of the leading causes of global warming, the remarkable to technology you see here, changes everything. Take a good one. Look, this is today's clean, coal technology. Finally, the positive alternative meshes with our economic challenge and our national security challenge. America is in crisis. The economy, national security, the climate crisis the thread that links them all our addiction to carbon, based fuels like dirty coal on foreign oil. But now there's a bold new solution to get us out of this mess REpower America with 100% clean electricity within 10 years. A plan to put America back to work. Make us more secure and help stop global warming. Finally, a solution it's big enough to solve our problems REpower America. Find out more. This is the last one it's about Repowering America. One of the fastest ways to cut our dependence on old dirty fuels that are killing our planet future is over here in on a new energy grid investment to create high paying jobs REpower America, time to get real there's an old African proverb that says if you want to go quickly go alone if you want to go far go together we need to go far quickly. Thank you very much."
