From Al Gore: Our Work Begins Now
Dear Jan,

Sign the Live Earth Pledge. Then email five of your friends and ask them to sign the pledge by visiting:

http://algore.com/pledge

A decade from now, when people look back on Live Earth, what they will remember isn't what happened during the show - instead my hope is they remember what happened after. More than 2 billion of us joined together on 7.7.07, and with one voice, demanded an end to the climate crisis. We now have the responsibility to carry this movement forward and force our leaders to take action.

The first step is to make sure every single person possible joins us. If you haven't already, please sign the Live Earth Pledge. Then email five of your friends and ask them to sign the pledge by visiting:

All of the actions we take from here on out to solve the climate crisis will be based on a simple premise: our home, Earth, is in danger. We don't risk destroying the planet, but instead risk making it inhospitable for human beings.

We have put so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that we have changed the heat balance between Earth and the Sun. If we don't stop soon, the average temperature will increase to levels that will end the favorable climate balance on which our civilization depends.

Throughout most of our short history, the United States and the American people have provided moral leadership for the world. Establishing the Bill of Rights, framing democracy in the Constitution, defeating Fascism in World War II, toppling Communism, and landing on the moon - all were the result of American leadership.

Once again, Americans must come together and direct our government to take on a global challenge. Our leadership is a precondition for success.

We need to demonstrate that we have reached the tipping point where political will demands our representatives take action to solve the climate crisis. That's why it's so vital that millions of Americans sign the Live Earth Pledge.

Sign the Live Earth Pledge today by visiting:

The climate crisis offers us the chance to experience what few generations in history have had the privilege of experiencing: a mission; a compelling moral purpose; a shared cause; and the thrill of being forced by circumstances to put aside the pettiness and conflict of politics and to embrace a genuine moral and spiritual challenge.

Please email five of your friends right now. Ask them to join us in this cause and sign the Live Earth Pledge today by visiting:

Our work begins now.

Thank you,

Al Gore

I have already responded to Mr. Gore regarding this mail pledging my support for his three year plan. Anyone else?

2. Thanks to you but it is very telling when threads about him losing weight...
get more attention than threads about the work we need to do for our planet now after Live Earth. I try to believe that people aren't really that shallow especially if they read his book, The Assault On Reason, and and now know that he would not stoop to such BS political sound bite tactics. However, I get disappointed here every time. He is waging a three year blitz for our planet because this crisis IS REAL AND WE HAVE TO SAVE HER and has asked us to join him and all people care about is that he lost a few pounds? No wonder this planet is screwed.
