Al Gore’s Challenge – 100% Renewable energy in Ten Years

July 20th, 2008 · No Comments

America’s borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Middle East, to destroy the environment in America. That’s the case Al Gore has made in his recent call for 100% renewable energy in the US within ten years.

You can see the 5 minute summary edit here:

Over in Australia (where I’m from), we’ve had an ‘options paper’ published by our government outlining the choices they feel are available to them to address the energy crises we are facing, and may continue to face over coming years.

Two young Australians have responded to the paper, lamenting that the government’s proposed scheme “fails to protect our inheritance. Instead, it is a giveaway bonanza, with the Government proposing to give 30 per cent of permits away for free to compensate to some of the most polluting industries in Australia.” Well worth a read
