The new Al Gore presentation

Gore delivered a "new" slideshow at the TED in March (thanks to James H for this). He finally addresses the gaping hole in the slideshow that anchored An Inconvenient Truth: namely, that we need to do more than change a few lightbulbs to slow climate change.

Here, in addition to expounding on recent ice data and emissions trajectories, he touches on the need for policies that place a price on carbon. Hallelujah. "Place a price on carbon" should be on the tip of every candidates tongue, north and south of the border.

Take a look:

Any thoughts on the new message? Or, to don my scientist hat again, his use of the ice data?
