Al Gore’s Energy Challenge

Former Vice President Al Gore challenged the United States to shift its entire electricity sector to carbon-free wind, solar and geothermal power within 10 years, and use that power to fuel a new fleet of electric vehicles.

The debate is now on. Is Al Gore’s Challenge realistic? Can the U.S. become energy independent within 10 years, and can we do it with alternative energy solutions rather than continued reliance on oil, coal and natural gas? Should we drill for more oil within the U.S. and off-shore?

Whether Gore’s proposed energy challenge is doable or not, it will hopefully spark debate and action in Washington, and start to mobilize the country to achieve energy independence while addressing Global Warming in a meaningful way. John McCain and Barack Obama responded positively to Al Gore’s energy challenge, however their energy plans clearly are not aligned with achieving Gore’s challenge.

    The whole global warming “scare” being foisted on us is based on a complte fabrication of facts that are no where near true. Not only are we (humans) responsible for global warming, it appears that warming is not happening. The latest satelite recording of the earth’s global temperature taken in the spring of this year (2008) revealed that the earth is 6/100ths of a degree cooler than it was in 1998. This whole hoax is a designed by the radical left to sieze more power and more of our liberties. They want to control how and where you live, what you drive and every other aspect of your life. Do your research. Gore is heavily vested in alternative energy enterprises and he is making millions and stands to make even more. Think about the idiotic idea od buying carbon credits. How will that reduce emmissions? It is merely another tax and one that will destroy heavy industry in this country.
