WOW! That’s all I can think to say right now. Back in 1992 was the first year I was old enough to vote for President and I still remember today reading Gores, ‘Earth In Balance’ and hoping that someone would finally help face the environmental issues in the White House. I was absolutely in awe and tears when I convinced Chris to watch, ‘An Inconvenient Truth‘ with me. Today I am in awe again as they announce that Gore is sharing the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the IPCC (Intergovenmental Panel of Climate Change). I could care less about the potential of him running for President in 2008; but I have to admit that I would be pleased to see his name on the ballet. All I can say is WOW!
If you haven’t made time to watch ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ you owe it to yourself to see it. I know personally it made my family step it up a little in our personal fight to conserve our planet and combat climate change. Since seeing the movie we have personally implemented a recycling program at home, changed our light bulbs to CFLs, conducted an energy audit of our home, purchased ENERGY STAR appliances, and in general become more aware of our choices.
To me this is not a political achievement for Gore; this is an environmental achievement for all of us living on this planet. Not just in the U.S.; but globally we need to fight the battle to stop climate change. We are smart enough to do it; we just need the motivation and the desire to make a change. Are you prepared to do your part?
