News & Opinion: Petropolitics, Global Weirding and Why Al Gore Owes Us All a Big Apology

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:37 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Thomas Friedman's publisher has sent us a video that we think you'll all be interested in.

It's taken from a presentation he gave in Washington, D.C. and is based on Part II of his new book Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution - and How It Can Renew America. In it, he discusses Petropolitics, Global Weirding and why Al Gore owes us all a big apology.

You can find that demo here. The link to the full talk is here: Thomas Friedman's Talk in Washington
