Gore Testifies

Al Gore testified today before the Senate Foreign Relation Committee. In that testimony Gore called for passage of President Obama’s stimulus package as well as quick action on climate change. He urged Congress not to let the myriad of problems, foreign and domestic, deter them from acting to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. From MSNBC:

“As long as we continue to depend on dirty fossil fuels like coal and oil to meet our energy needs,” Gore added, “we move closer and closer to several dangerous tipping points which scientists have repeatedly warned — again just yesterday — will threaten to make it impossible for us to avoid irretrievable destruction of the conditions that make human civilization possible on this planet.”

His reference to Tuesday was a study sponsored by the federal government that predicted significant climate impacts over the next 1,000 years even if carbon emissions were capped soon.

As a special treat to Jules Gordon I have attached MSNBC video, as well as the video Al Gore sent in advance of his testimony from Repower America.

    Thank you, Your Honor,

    I listen to the Bernie Madoff of climate change and realize you can fool just about all the people all the time.

    It’s unfortunate that the price of Algore being wrong is not as high as the price of him being right …
