While President Bush likes to project an image of strength and courage, the real truth is that in the presence of his large financial contributors, he is a moral coward.

Today we're dumping 70 million tons of global-warming pollution into the environment, and tomorrow we will dump more, and there is no effective worldwide response. Until we start sharply reducing global-warming pollution, I will feel that I have failed.

今天我们要向环境中排放7000万吨全球变暖的污染,明天我们还要排放更多的污染,世界范围内还没有有效的应对措施。在我们开始大幅减少全球变暖的污染之前,我会觉得我失败了。

戈尔

Science has a culture that is inherently cautious and that is normally not a bad thing. You could even say conservative, because of the peer review process and because the scientific method prizes uncertainty and penalises anyone who goes out on any sort of a limb that is not held in place by abundant and well-documented evidence.

科学有一种天生谨慎的文化,这通常不是坏事。你甚至可以说是保守的,因为同行评议的过程,因为科学方法重视不确定性,惩罚任何一个没有充分证据支持的人。

Civil disobedience has an honourable history, and when the urgency and moral clarity cross a certain threshold, then I think that civil disobedience is quite understandable, and it has a role to play.

公民抗命有一段光荣的历史,当紧迫性和道德的明晰度跨过一定的门槛,那么我认为公民抗命是可以理解的,是有作用的。

George Bush taking credit for the wall coming down is like the rooster taking credit for the sun rising.
