Al Gore Makes Revolutionary Global Warming Speech to NY Law

Al Gore has done it again! In a speech to NY Law School in September 18th, former VP Gore furthered the recommendations made in his movie, “An Inconvenient Truth” by making sweeping recommendations for the U.S. to reduce it’s emissions and make steps towards preserving the earth. He has many recommendations but the main ones seem to be:

1. A CO2 emissions freeze – he says we need to cap CO2 emissions at the current levels

2. A CO2 mortgage system – basically to give incentives to build efficient structures and convert energy savings to mortgage savings

3. A revenue-neutral CO2 tax – you make more CO2, you pay more taxes.

Now all we need to do is implement some of these, go Al Gore!

Grist has the entire speech to review.

    Al Gore tends to get things right

    Gore grasped the significance of the internet years before most of us had even hjeard of it and was active in its legislation.

    Gore was one of only 2 Democratic Senators who supported Bush the Elder’s Desert Storm

    gore applauded Bush the Lesser when he invaded Afganistan.

  2. gasdocpol Says:

    Gore opposed the Iraq invasion in major speeches starting in Sept 2002.

    Gore probably got it right on global warming.
