gore's challenge

In keeping with inspirational speeches and videos, I thought I'd mention the big speech by Al Gore last week. You know, the one where he challenges America to produce 100% of our electricity from clean, carbon-free resources within 10 years.

I like how he tied together many of the big issues facing our country and says how clean energy can also help our economy and get us out of the war. I think by proposing this challenge he will keep the issue in front of the candidates and politicians. Of course, there are many things we can do ourselves, too.

Sometimes I need these inspirational, big thinking, big picture perspectives to help me stay on track and stick with my efforts everyday. If you agree, be sure to join the We Campaign (if you haven't already) and support the challenge.
