Al Gore His speech at the National Museum of the American Indian, Washington D.C., made the 7-point Live Earth Pledge (find it here and via Avaaz here):I PLEDGE:

1.To demand that my country join an international treaty within the next 2 years that cuts global warming pollution by 90% in developed countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next generation to inherit a healthy earth;

2.To take personal action to help solve the climate crisis by reducing my own CO2 pollution as much as I can and offsetting the rest to become “carbon neutral;”

3.To fight for a moratorium on the construction of any new generating facility that burns coal without the capacity to safely trap and store the CO2;

4.To work for a dramatic increase in the energy efficiency of my home, workplace, school, place of worship, and means of transportation;

5.To fight for laws and policies that expand the use of renewable energy sources and reduce dependence on oil and coal;

6.To plant new trees and to join with others in preserving and protecting forests; and,

7.To buy from businesses and support leaders who share my commitment to solving the climate crisis and building a sustainable, just, and prosperous world for the 21st century.

and ended with these words:

“Our children and grandchildren will ask one of two questions:

What were they thinking? Didn’t they hear the scientists, didn’t they see the evidence, were they just too greedy?

Or they will ask – the one I prefer – I want them to ask:

How did they get the act together and find the uncommon moral courage to act together and solve the climate crisis?”

For our friends in California, this is the Live Earth programming we had in the UK broadcast by BBC TV and hosted by Jonathan Ross. One of these days, we’ll link to the lyrics of certain songs, as some were very powerful. I do hope people get the message that this is the start of a multi-year campaign to build commitment at all levels to combat climate change.

We look forward to hearing about the performers you watched in the U.S. You-know-who was playing football outside, and kept bringing the ball inside and bouncing it through the house to see what was on telly. In an attempt to ensure a better listening experience for the rest of us enjoying Live Earth I offered ykw a choice: sort socks with me, or keep track of the songs. You can see he did a pretty good job of the latter. (Naturally, the socks were all mine to pair.)
