Gore’s Generational Challenge to Repower America

On Thursday former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore issued a bold challenge: that 100 percent of U.S. electricity production come from sources with zero carbon emissions within 10 years.

A video and the full text of his speech given in Washington DC can be accessed from the We Can Solve It website. Although the challenge was issued to Americans, I believe that it is applicable to every country in the world today. I am hoping that our own President (and the one waiting in the wings) will take heed and adjust our own environmental policy to encompass this challenge.
