Al Gore’s Trendy Environmentalism in Barcelona

On the 23 of June, I had the opportunity to attend the Friends of Trees Conference in Barcelona. It has taken me a few weeks to digest all the information, which I, together with about 900 other people managed to inhale: the fumes of change, the organic revolution, the climate crisis, the need for solidarity and action. It was a most overwhelming task and Al Gore's redundant joke of, "I used to be the next president of the United States," has hardly helped ease the intensity of the situation.
