As part of our efforts to promote professional development among city leaders, each week we’ll be featuring a new TED Talk focused on cities, community issues or local government.
In honor of Earth Day on April 22, this week’s featured talk focuses on climate change. Why is Al Gore optimistic about climate change? In this spirited talk, the Nobel laureate and former vice president asks three powerful questions about the man-made forces threatening to destroy our planet — and the solutions we’re designing to combat them.
