disseminating al gore’s 10-year challenge

Right before Congress takes their August recess, Al Gore wants to run an ad to promote his 10-year challenge to produce all of our electricity from clean sources. The cost of running the ad in the “Wall Street Journal,” the “New York Times,” and the “Washington Post” would be $200,000. If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation to see that happen, visit We Can Solve It.

As Teaspout pointed out the other day, when you Google “Al Gore 10 Years,” MM.com is the second thing to come up. I’d normally be happy as hell about that, but this is way too important. We really need to get people talking about the ten year challenge. We need people to know that it’s not only ambitious, but doable, and absolutely imperative… As they say in the ad, “our environment, our economy and our security all depend on it.”

So please, donate money so that this site is no longer the second thing that comes up.

    Well, I just checked, and you’ve fallen from 1 to 17 on Google for “ball shaving.” So all is not well in Maynardland.

    Well I guess people ARE talking (at least a bit more). MM.com is down to #8 on the “al gore 10 year” search.

    Mark,
    What did you think of Obama’s energy plan announced today in Lansing?

    “As part of Obama’s long term plan he calls for:

    -A goal of having one million 150 miles-per-gallon plug in hybrids on the roads by 2015
    -A requirement that 10% of energy comes from renewable sources by the end of his first term, including extending the Production Tax credit for 5 years to encourage the production of renewable energy resources
    -A goal to reduce the demand for electricity by 15% by the end of the next decade by implementing energy efficient programs”
