I encourage all villagers to view his speech for yourself:
I've never been a great fan of Al Gore. However, when you're right ... you're right. Al Gore is right when he points out that our dangerous over-reliance on carbon-based fuels is at the core of high gas prices, economic downturn and the war in Iraq. America borrows money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the planet.
We need a new paradigm. We need to take control of our own economic and environmental future. What say u about Gore's challenge?
