Today Al Gore issued a "major challenge" for USA where he said that Americans must abandon electricity generated by fossil fuels within 10 years and instead move over to green renewable energy. He called it "A Generational Challenge to Repower America."
If the challenge is not accepted "the survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk," Al Gore said.
Al Gore said that by abandoning dirty fossil fuels the USA would generate more and better jobs, fix the economy and make USA, as well as the world, safer. He also said that the solutions to the "climate crisis are the very same measures needed to renew our economy and escape the trap of ever-rising energy prices" as well as end the US dependence on foreign oil.
Al Gore also slammed President Bush and the current administration for not doing enough to combat climate change and other major problems facing Americans today.
Al Gore urged people to visit WeCanSolveIt.org and "take action today".
