In his DVD, An Inconvenient Truth, he talks about how our entire world is changing. The challenge for Gore is that the people who need to listen and do something about it on a larger scale, are turning a deaf ear. Many so-called scientists want to say that there is no such thing as Global Warming. However, everyone is experiencing climate changes. We have more damaging storms and many areas that should have snow in the winter have spring days. In some areas, the summers are hotter than ever before and we are losing our oceans. We are not paying attention to this because we do not think that it is affecting us. However, everything that happens to the planet will have an effect on us eventually.
Another area where we are not watching is what is happening in technology. With cell phones alone, we have a device that baby sits, takes away time from the family and does everything but get up and dance; who knows, someone may be working on that one right now! We are told that many discoveries in telecommunications and other technology are good for us. A prediction that "there will be intelligent electronic systems almost everywhere" (Hall, 2007, p. 1) is a common prediction. Why? Because ewe are becoming so advanced with our technology that it is difficult to embrace all of it at once. One prediction in this area that we have already realized is the Internet connections anywhere we go. Many restaurants, hospital waiting rooms, even Burger King has a wireless connection today. Although this is a great idea, when we embrace it to the fullest, we will move away from our children and families in favor of talking on the phone or being on the computer most of the time. According to Rubner (2010), some experts predict that we will be wearing mobile electronics in our clothing; Rubner says we will not need computers eventually because we will be wearing them.
Hall adds to what Rubner says and we can expect live
