Hey, What's Al Gore Up To?

Pundits may be fantasizing about Al Gore sneaking in at the Democratic convention and making peace between the two candidates (or running himself in their dreams), but he's made it clear he's not interested in any of that. So what is he up to these days? Well, this-
Former Vice President Al Gore launched a three-year, multimillion-dollar advocacy campaign Monday calling for the U.S. to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

The Alliance for Climate Protection's campaign, dubbed "we," will combine advertising, online organizing and partnerships with grass-roots groups to educate the public about global warming and urge solutions from elected officials...

You can watch their first advertisment- here.

I definitely feel like this a remarkable effort, and more power to them for it. But I just fear that Fox News-ification of American political debate continues to ensure that we will never, ever solve this crisis. Because the minority on this issue is very good at attempting to blur the lines, and ensure that we'll be "debating" it forever, rather than working together to find common purpose and solutions.

Prove me wrong, Earth. Prove me wrong!
