When you talk about President Trump the cable networks turned over so many hours of prime time

I have to admit to you that initially I did not want to do a documentary.

When I had the opportunity in the ’70s to be a member of Congress and have hearings on whatever issues I wanted, this bubbled to the surface as one of the most important issues, and I started attacking it as a public official.

Every one is different, but the passion doesn’t require summoning.

I guess having followed the process since I led the Senate delegation to the Earth Summit down in Rio de Janeiro back in 1992, my expectations had been kind of beaten down.

The political process instead rewards homogeneity and messages that can be boiled down to 27-second TV commercials. I sometimes wonder what the founding fathers would’ve done if they had to discuss their ideas back in 1789 in 27-second soundbytes. I doubt we’d have a country!

Did you happen to watch the TV news this morning? The lead story on some channels is once again historic, record-breaking flooding in the Midwest and the Southeast, with many lives lost. This is now a daily occurrence in some parts of the world and by connecting the dots for people, my hope is that I can communicate emotionally as well as on an intellectual, factual basis.

Having cameras follow you for two years is something that requires a little personal adjustment, but you actually do begin to forget they're there.

We've seen the bankruptcy of many newspapers. We've seen a further erosion of the line between news and entertainment. But I do believe that there is reason to hope that over time we will see the higher-quality journalism rise to the surface.

I think it's harder for people than it should be. But as more and more of us become carbon neutral and change the patterns in our lives to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, we are now beginning to see the changes in policy that are needed.

Well we have seen a decline in emissions on a global basis. For the first time they’ve stabilized and started to decline. So some of the responses for the last 10 years have helped, but unfortunately and regrettably a lot of serious damage has been done.

Well, we've changed the lightbulbs to the more efficient kind [compact fluorescent, or CFL, lightbulbs] and switched to a hybrid [vehicle], and we use clock thermostats, and we're installing solar panels.

I was spreading the word about where to drop off food or care packages and gathering people to clear away tear gas canisters.
