Kerry on Gore and Climate Change
Kerry on Gore and Climate Change


Former Vice President Al Gore was in New York today to speak about global warming at an event sponsored by MoveOn.org. Gore attacked Bush's refusal to take any action to deal with global warming.


John Kerry welcomed Gore's speech, and issued the following statement:

“Gore’s speech on climate change is an important reminder of what is at stake in this election. As Gore points out, the Bush Administration has retreated from U.S. leadership, hidden the facts on the reality of global warming, and put energy lobbyists in charge of environmental regulation.

“Al Gore is right. The earth is a small planet where wind and water, poison and pollution know no borders. We need to return America to its rightful place as a leader on climate change and that requires a President who is respectful and committed to the global community. I am running for President to take on the special interests that stand in the way of protecting our planet and to create a new era of alliances where we can all work together to preserve our environment for the future.”

Obviously Gore will still be welcome in a Kerry administration. Now I will go back to my low expectations. Don't want to jinx it.

1. I seriously doubt that the man who was elected in 2000
is going to work for Kerry.

2. lol
Aw, come one, let's have one day of whoopin' it up.

I was really pleased to see JK release this statement. He is the one who can unite the party. He appeals to everybody, men, women, young, old, union, vets, greens, small business, centrists, everybody. Except those nasty old cheap labor conservatives and their nasty pseudo-christian conservative cousins. And we don't want them anyway.
