71. Did you see Gore's
congressional testimony in March?

He made five major proposals in the vein you are discussing. The three I can remember offhand are:

1) conversion of our current power grid to an "ElectraNet," which would eliminate the need for new power plants in the US and could be exported to countries like China;

2) a carbon freeze; and

3) accelerating the next cycle of global talks on climate change from 2012 to 2010, so that the American president can lead the world in full-scale planetary mobilization.

I would agree with you regarding every other US politician, but not Gore. It may or may not be too late to save civilization, but he is by far our most realistic hope.
