In a much discussed speech, ‘A Generational Challenge to
Repower America,’ Al Gore challenged America to hit the off-switch on
foreign oil and re-power itself with home-grown carbon-free energy– namely wind,
solar and geothermal.
The predicted outcome Gore said would be a bold, energy
independent nation ready to lead the world into the 21st century. However,
such an effort, he asserted, would require “commitment to changing not just
light bulbs, but laws. And Laws will only change with leadership.”
