A few weeks ago I read John and Teresa’s book, This Moment on Earth. I found the stories within, about men and women fighting the great fight for our environment, to be a profound challenge to all of us. These activists provide valuable lessons on the power of people working for change.
If we embrace their resourcefulness, determination and essential patriotism we will prevail in the fight to save our planet. I was inspired by their work, and I know you will be too. You can purchase a copy of This Moment on Earth at your local bookstore. The book comes at an important time, a vital moment on Earth. Right now our nation is ready to cross the tipping point beyond which our leaders will be forced to take real action to solve the climate crisis. However, in order to cross that threshold it is going to take a sufficient expression of political will. Most of our Representatives in Washington know there is no longer a debate about the fact that the climate crisis is real — and they know the serious consequences our planet faces if we fail to act. Political will is a renewable resource, and enough already exists to start solving this crisis.
We just have to communicate that forcefully to the political leaders of our country. As John and Teresa’s book demonstrates, the most powerful way to realize that change is through the activism of the American people. That is why a few months ago I began building a movement at AlGore.com. Already we have grown to a community of more than 550,000. In order to ultimately succeed we will need to grow even bigger.
Today I want to invite you to join our movement to solve the climate crisis by visiting: http://www.algore.com/join/ For many years, I have worked with John Kerry and Teresa Heinz Kerry to fight for a solution to the climate crisis — way before it was fashionable.
Indeed, they were providing outstanding and courageous leadership on these vital questions when very few people in the world were even paying attention to these challenges. This commitment continues in their important new book. I urge you to join me in working for change. And I urge you to read John and Teresa’s wonderful new book for moving and inspiring illustrations of the potential power of Americans working for a better planet. Together, we can create a better tomorrow for our Earth if we seize this vital moment. Thank you, Al Gore
