Al Gore To Speak On National Challenge On Energy And Climate

NWF   |   July 15, 2008

Al Gore, chairman of the Alliance for Climate Protection, helped launch
in March a multi-year, multi-faceted campaign designed to engage the American
public and ignite a movement to address one of the most important issues facing
civilization: solving the climate crisis.

The former Vice President will speak in
his national challenge on energy and climate on Thursday, July 17.

“We can solve the climate crisis, but it will
require a major shift in public opinion and engagement,” said Gore.
“The technologies exist, but our elected leaders don’t yet have the political
will to take the bold actions required. When politicians hear the American
people calling loud and clear for change, they’ll listen.”

The Alliance for Climate Protection’s three
year, commercial-scale campaign will fund an aggressive and innovative
online activation and mobilization program supported by nationwide television,
print, radio and online advertising all geared toward engaging 10 million
supporters to drive policy change.

“The problem is urgent, but the solutions exist.
Together, We can solve the climate crisis,” reads the organization’s fact
