The good news is that there is a great deal to be hopeful about. The engineering exists to create enough clean energy for the world economy and to avoid total climate calamity.

Posted on his official website, Gore’s statement continued, “But attain no mistake: if President Trump wont produce, the American people will.” Gore’s commentaries are already being backed up by a growing grassroots movement from individual American both citizens and local and regional U.S. leaders who have pledged to uphold the tenets of the Agreement.
