你看著這河水 You look at that river

潺潺地流過 gently flowing by.

聽著風中 You notice the leaves

瑟瑟的落葉 rustling with the wind.

鳥兒在鳴唱 You hear the birds.

樹蛙也來湊熱鬧 You hear the tree frogs.

隱隱約約地 還有遠處奶牛的哞聲 In the distance, you hear a cow.

撫摸著青草 You feel the grass.

河岸露出了一小塊泥土 The mud gives a little bit on the river bank.

周遭一片祥和安靜 It's quiet. It's peaceful.

突然之間 And all of a sudden,

你感覺身體 好像汽車突然換了一檔 it's a gear shift inside you.

就像深吸一口氣 然后說 And it's like taking a deep breath and going,

"噢 我都忘記這樣的美景了" "Oh, yeah, I forgot about this."

這是有史以來 從外太空 This is the first picture of the Earth from space

拍攝的第一張地球照片 that any of us ever saw.

是1968年的圣誕夜 It was taken on Christmas Eve, 1968

阿波羅8號執行任務時拍攝的 during the Apollo 8 Mission.

我們還可以看到 比較分明的邊界線 within relatively comfortable boundaries.

但我們正在污染這層薄薄的大氣保護罩 But we are filling up that thin shell of atmosphere with pollution.

女士們先生們 有請阿爾·戈爾先生 Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Al Gore.

我是阿爾·戈爾 I am Al Gore.

我曾是"下一屆美國總統" I used to be the next president of the United States of America.

我可不覺得好笑 I don't find that particularly funny.

很久以來我都在向人們呼吁 I've been trying to tell this story for a long time,

但我感覺自己沒有成功 and I feel as if I've failed to get the message across.

我從政多年 對自己的成就問心無愧 I was in politics for a long time and I'm proud of my service.

開玩笑 這簡直就是國家的災難 You gotta be kidding me. This is a national disaster.

把全國所有的灰狗長途汽車 Get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country,

都搞到新奧爾良去 and get their... moving to New Orleans.

估計都嫌不夠裝 That's them thinking small, man,

這可是筆大買賣 and this is a major, major, major deal.

我們現在到底需要什么? What do you need right now?

在兩大政黨里面 There are good people,

還是有開明人士 who are in politics in both parties

雖然現在對這個敬而遠之 who hold this at arm's length

可一旦他們意識到這個問題 because if they acknowledge it and recognize it,

就一定會奮力改革 then the moral imperative to make big changes

良心使然 is inescapable.

除非你解決這個國家史上最大的危機 unless you fix the biggest damn CRIsis in the history of this country.

片名 《難以忽視的真相》

...尋找著陸點 當阿波羅8號飛船駛入月球暗面時 ...scouted out landing spots and they lost radio contact

失去了和地球的通訊 when they went around the dark side of the moon.

過了一段時間 And there was inevitably some suspense.

恢復通訊的時候 Then when they came back in radio contact,

他們抬起頭來 they looked up

拍下了一幅照片 著名的"升起的地球" and they snapped this picture, and it became known as Earth Rise.

就是這幅照片 And that one picture exploded

激發了人類的自省 in the consciousness of humankind.

引起了戲劇性的變化 It lead to dramatic changes.
