Al Gore
Former Vice President
Why I Am Marching

The vast majority of the most respected environmental scientists from all over the world have sounded a clear and urgent alarm. Global warming is real, it is happening already and the anticipated consequences are unacceptable. The evidence is overwhelming and undeniable.

The international community – including the United States – began a massive effort years ago to assemble the most accurate scientific assessment of the growing evidence that the earth’s environment is sustaining severe damage from the unprecedented accumulation of pollution in the global atmosphere. Today, there is no longer any credible basis for doubting that the earth’s atmosphere is heating up because of global warming. Indeed scientists from around the world are increasingly concerned by what appears to be an increase in the rate of CO2 buildup in the atmosphere - a development which, if confirmed in subsequent years, might signal the beginning of an extremely dangerous 'runaway greenhouse' effect.

There is no doubt we can solve this problem. After all, we brought down communism, won wars in the Pacific and Europe simultaneously, enacted the Marshall Plan, found a cure for polio and put men on the moon. When we set our sights on a visionary goal and are unified in pursuing it, there is very little we cannot accomplish. The time to come together to solve this problem is now.
