Al Gore and The Alliance for Climate Protection recently launched the “We Can Solve It” campaign calling on business and government leaders to take immediate action to solve the climate crisis.
The goal is 1 million people, so far over 925,000 have signed up. If you haven't already, you can click here and sign your name. If you've already signed the call to action, you can click here to go to a page where you can urge your family and friends to sign up.
The DC-based Competitive Enterprise Institute desperately wants to remain relevant in the global warming discussion, and has fallen back to some good old fashioned Gore-bashing to do so.
At a press conference yesterday, the CEI released a new ad campaign trying (again) to discredit action on global warming, by trying (again) to discredit the work of vice-president Al Gore.You can check out the CEI's ads here - you'll find they're nothing more than a rehash of information long since made irrelevant.
The warming of the planet is the overriding environmental issue of our time , with former vice-president Al Gore playing a crucial role in raising public awareness. Although the appetite for decisive action is growing – except at the White House – the U.S. is still a long way from a comprehensive response to the challenge. Several Democratic hopefuls in this year’s presidential campaign are stepping up to the plate, but most Republicans are still dithering.
Very moving. The best speech I've seen by Mr. Gore. If you don't have 20 minutes, check the last 5 and the 2 minute standing ovation at the end.>
A face off between the world’s largest greenhouse-gas spewers has taken center stage at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bali, and China appears to be winning its public-relations battle with the U.S.
China has reiterated it will not consider mandatory emissions cuts until the U.S. and other industrialized countries such as Canada embrace a less-extravagant lifestyle. The U.S. is standing pat in its opposition to mandatory limits.
Although both countries have dug in their heels, China, which many believe has already surpassed the U.S. as the world's top emitter of heat-trapping gases, is now seen as playing a constructive role on global warming after years of dodging the issue.
In that scenario, the U.S. is losing friends fast.
At 3:30 am pacific time on December 13th (less than 5 hours from now), Al Gore will address the United Nations climate change summit underway in Bali, Indonesia.
Gore will be presenting a petition signed by hundreds of thousands of people from around the world who are demanding that our leaders stand up and take action on global warming.
If you haven't signed the petition, go to this link right away and add your name - it takes about 5 seconds to do and it's the least we can all do for a man who has dedicated his life to the issue.
And if so inclined, go here to vote it up the ranks on Digg.com (another mere 5 seconds of your life), so the message can spread even further in a very short amount of time.
