Tim Cook, president of Apple, told Tulane University graduates in New Orleans that our generation has failed young people, adding that under various changes and developments that had not taken place, he noted New Orleans recovery from Hurricane Katrina as an example of coastal communities that bear the human cost of our changing climate.

“In some important areas, we spent a lot of time in the discussion, we focused on fighting and did not focus enough on progress,” Cook said. “Here today, in this very place where thousands of homeless from a hundred-year disaster, I think we can talk about who we are as people and what we owe to each other without talking about climate change.

Cook, who succeeded Apple’s legendary founder Steve Jobs as CEO in 2011, spoke of the current policy split when it comes to helping tackle climate change: “When we talk about climate change or any other problem, I challenge you to look for those Who have the most to lose and find the true sympathy that comes from something common.

“Whatever you do, do not make a mistake in extreme caution, do not assume that by maintaining the situation, the earth will not move under your feet, the status quo simply will not continue,” Cook said, urging the students to be bold in making decisions.

To work on building something better, you may succeed and you may fail, but make your life a re-making of the world, because there is nothing more beautiful or valuable than working to leave something better for mankind.
