每週四中午午休時間,睡美猴總是帶著小龍包的愛心便當,

開心地走到公司的會議廳,參加 Toastmasters 會議。

這是個訓練演講膽識,增進溝通技巧,和培養領導能力的好地方。

Toastmasters 分佈全球,在台灣稱為「中華民國國際演講協會」。

透過同事的介紹,猴兒加入會員多年。

內容包羅萬象,卻又循序漸進。

上星期猴兒忙著準備第九個主題:Persuade with Power

以強而有力的方式說服聽眾 (5 to 7 minutes)

猴兒以西方童書 What Do You See 為引,

引出去年底科學家發現有四隻北極熊在北海淹死的事件,

然後指出「全球暖化」是其主因,

最後再呼籲聽眾從小處做起,一起來拯救地球,

不要當地球生態的「癌」細胞!

猴兒用了十二張投影片,花了六分四十八秒,過程中出現五個 "Ah..."。

評論員反應不錯:資料充實,引人入勝,簡潔有力,再接再厲!

以下是演說摘要:

What Do You See?  I see a polar bear looking at me.

Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you see?

I see my friends Drowning in the Sea...

In December 2005, four drowned polar bears were found in the Arctic.  This sounds really horrible.  Swimming is supposed to be an easy task for Polar bears, isn't it?

Toastmaster, fellow Toastmasters and guests.  Today I am going to tell you why there were drowned polar bears.  And, why this information is important to us.

Research showed that 2005 was the hottest year of history. The temperature increased at the Arctic was twice higher than other area, which caused the reduction of ice cap.

As a reslut, the distance for a bear to swim from one island to another increased.  The weak bears drowned because they could not make it.

Change is in the Air - literally. 

The role of ice cap is to regulate the temperature of earth.  And, the reduction of ice cap makes global warming enter a vicious cycle.

Human species has only existed on the earth for a short time in the whole geological processes.  Human beings have created lots of pollution on earth.  Do not be a "cancer" that damages the eco-system of the earth.

Possible answers to the crisis are to reduce air pollution and reduce dependence on oil.

We can start from the little things around us.  The accumulated results of everybody's effort will amaze you.

We are on the same boat.  When nature disaster occurs, no one can escape.  It is our responsibilities to give our children a better earth to live.

It is not too late, yet.
 
 
The above infomation is from various resources.  Thank you, Toastmasters!

沒有危機意識的笨人類

聽說北極熊再30年就會絕種.....不知是真還是假

看了照片與專家對地球溫暖化的警告之後,才知道這不是危言聳聽,而且在不久的將來會實現的真實惡夢

北極熊是在冬眠時慘遭溺斃的嗎?
TT.很笨 ~ 在還沒看過 Day after tomorrow 之前

還一直以為溫室效應的全球暖化

會讓夏天更熱( 熱昏人的那種 ) ~ 冬天不冷 ~

結果首衝的溫室效應其實是在南北極裡冰山溶解 ~

嚴重到不可收拾的時候

居然是全球忽然地驟冷 ~~
