What a nerve! Al Gore is trying to steal The Average American's energy policy! He can't even get that right. He says America should make ALL of our electricity without carbon fuel---ie---no coal. He further wants to see this transition in 10 years instead of my 12 years. Other than those two things, he is basically plagerizing my post from July 5th! Here is a piece of the article from CNN:
"The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk," Gore said.
In a speech at Washington's Constitution Hall, Gore touched on an array of the nation's current woes, saying the economic, environmental and national security crises are all related.
"I don't remember a time in our country when so many things seemed to be going so wrong simultaneously," Gore said.
To begin to fix all the problems, Gore said, "the answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels." Watch more on Gore's answer to energy crisis »
Gore called on the country to produce all of its electricity from renewable and carbon-free sources in 10 years, a goal he compared to President Kennedy's challenge for the country to put a man on the moon in the 1960s.
Gore chastised those who have proposed opening new areas for oil drilling as a solution to U.S. energy problems.

All this from a man who probably accounts for more oil usage than 100 Average Americans! I still say "Keep burning coal"! Why put thousands of miners out of work just because "Mr.Green" says so? At least it all comes from America.
Here's another article you might be interested in. It is a brief discription of his highness's energy usage, not counting the auto and plane trips, etc.
I guess I have to excuse him for screwing up MY IDEAS on energy, after all, he did invent the internet so I can blog about him.
