Vice President Al Gore has issued a challenge to the United States: Shift our entire electricity sector to carbon-free wind, solar and geothermal power within 10 years, and use that power to fuel a nation-wide fleet of electrical vehicles.
"This goal is achievable, affordable and transformative," Gore told a Washington audience of over a thousand cheering supporters yesterday. "It represents a challenge to all Americans in every walk of life . . . to our political leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, engineers and to every citizen."
Petroleum may be in the present, but a carbon-free American society is on the horizon as depicted in the above photograph of a gas plant with newly constructed wind generators rising from the background.
Let's rally support behind Gore and Get 'er Done!
