Al Gore Speaks at Copenhagen

posted Thursday, December 17, 2009        

Al Gore issued a bold challenge from the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, calling on Members of Congress to pass clean energy and climate legislation in the United States by next April 22, the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. In an inspiring speech that was interrupted often with outbursts of applause and that ended with a standing ovation, Vice President Gore made clear what’s at stake this week: nothing short of the future of human civilization as we know it. And that future hangs in the balance right now while the United States debates its next steps.
