Al Gore did not make global warming a major issue in his 2000 presidential campaign but he should have.

We Need Global Warming Legislation THIS YEAR.
There is no time to waste when it comes to the health of our planet.
Enacting real change may take years. We need to get the legislation out of the way, and start now to make real change.
Al Gore just won the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting global warming. There is no better time for us to urge Congress to take a lead on this issue. We need a bill to cap and reduce America's pollution before the holiday recess.
Tell your Legislators there is no excuse! They need to pass global warming legislation THIS YEAR.>>
Scientists tell us that we must stabilize the concentration of carbon dioxide pollution in the earth's atmosphere at 450 parts per million in order to avoid the catastrophic effects of global warming.
To reach this target, America needs to cut its CO2 pollution by 80% by 2050, which is a 2% reduction per year if we start NOW.
The longer we delay, the deeper we have to cut to hit our 80% reduction target by 2050.
Act Now! Urge your Legislators to push through global warming legislation NOW.>>
Thank you for working for the protection of our planet.
