In an editorial in the New York Times last week, Al Gore made his case with a plan to, “begin an emergency rescue of human civilization from the imminent and rapidly growing threat posed by the climate crisis.”
Framing his argument with today’s economic uncertaintly, he advocates an extensive jobs program centered around environmental related works. According to Gore, his plan would put millions to work while helping to ensure our ‘survival’ against the spectre of manmade climate change.
“Our children and grandchildren need you to hear and recognize the truth of our situation, before it is too late.”
– Al Gore, November 9, 2008
Mr. Gore advocates a number of solutions and alternative fuel sources. Interestingly enough, nuclear power is not included in his proposals despite the fact that it is one of the most powerful and environmentally sound solutions available.
