Former Vice President Al Gore, the man who should be president right, delivers a major speech on global warming and challenges the nation to produce every kilowatt of electricity through wind, sun and other environmentally-friendly and renewable energy sources within 10 years. It's an audacious and ambitious goal he hopes the next president, whoever he may be, will embrace. Gore compared his challenge to John F. Kennedy's 1961 pledge to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade.
"This goal is achievable, affordable and transformative,” the Nobel Prize-winning Democrat said at an energy conference. "It represents a challenge to all Americans, in every walk of life—to our political leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, engineers, and to every citizen."
In January, the former veep came out in support of same sex marriage.
