Al said that carbon overload is
just as big a factor in other crises outside of the climate crisis. “The overdependence of carbon based fuels is not
only affecting the climate crisis, but is also affecting the economical crisis and national security crisis,” said Gore.
In his concluding statements, Gore compared the naysayers of climate control to those in the 1960’s
that doubted man ever having a chance to step foot on the moon and urged young people to get involved in the green business.
“I can remember being in high school in 1963 hearing President John F. Kennedy saying that he wanted to put a man on
the moon.” “People laughed, then six years later Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon and that’s what
I feel will happen with climate control.”
The 45th Vice President’s
new book was released November 3rd, 'Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis'. The book was a three year
follow up to “An Inconvenient Truth.” Our Choice gives readers a menu of choices regarding
renewable energy and talks about the challenges of these choices politically. The earnings of his latest work will go to The
Alliance for Climate Protection, a non-profit organization fashioned by Gore after his highly acclaimed Repower America speech
in 2008. Allies of the organization include Bill Nye the Science Guy.
Al Gore was honored with the 2007 Nobel
Peace Prize for his “efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change”. Gore
won an Oscar for his 2006 global
warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
