I just read a great speech by Al Gore. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/al-gore/a-generational-challenge_b_113359.html
He is calling for the United States to “… commit to producing 100 percent of our electricity from renewable energy and truly clean carbon-free sources within 10 years.” What a good idea. He has a link in this article to a website where if you are interested you can join in the campaign. Personally, I think doing whatever we can to become energy independent is a good thing.
