Send A Message ...

No, literally: Send a message.

At AlGore.com, you can create a postcard that he will deliver to your representative in Washington in March.

Go here to create your card.

Stumped for what to say? Just speak from your heart. Or, hell, cut and paste what I wrote: "I know that in Washington, change is typically made slowly. On this issue, we do not have the luxury of time. No one is asking that we shun electricity and cars and return to candles and horse-drawn carriages. There are many small things each of us can do that will have an enormous, positive impact. The United States is the biggest producer of CO2 on the planet. Therefore, it is, very simply, our responsibility to lead the charge for change. Mr. Gore has shown us the way. It's time to act."

But lend your voice. Please. There is no bigger issue facing mankind.

Appearantly the message Al is sending is do as I say, not as I do.

What that organization doesn't bother to mention in its piece is that Gore invests in renewable energy sources every month to offset his own usage.

Here's a piece from the AP that gives both sides of the story:

I don't understand why everyone is so hell bent on trying to argue global warming and/or point fingers. Whether people believe the threat is real or not, it's not a bad idea to save energy.
