Al Gore challenge to America
Posted by candace on July 30, 2008
On July 17th, former Vice President Al Gore challenged America to reset the way we make our energy choices. He spoke about amazing opportunities — and how making the correct choices will benefit our environment, our national security, our economy and our energy bills. Al Gore has issued a powerful challenge: producing 100 percent of our electricity from renewable energy and truly clean carbon-free sources within 10 years.
In the past months he’s been hosting a series of solutions summits with engineers, scientists, CEOs, and financiers. This speech pulled together some of the best thinking from those talks — and highlighted what we each can do to end our dangerous addiction to fossil fuels and solve the climate crisis.
In addition to watching the speech, you can opt to join the We Campaign, a powerful nonpartisan movement of concerned citizens. The We Campaign is working to ensure that elected leaders make the climate crisis a priority.
