Speaking of Global Warming….

Al Gore gave a major speech calling for dramatic changes in our energy policy.  He argued that within a decade every kilowatt of electricity used in the U.S. should come from solar, wind and other eco-friendly sources (via Kos).  Here’s hoping Obama and McCain were listening.  This is essentially our generation’s “moon shot.”

BTW, I’m coming back around a bit on Sizzle.  I was initially pretty critical, but I think that Olson’s deliberate strategy of engaging with science bloggers on the issue was interesting.  In a sense, the dialogue fulfills the purpose of the movie.  I still think it’s flawed, but it raises some complicated arguments about the ways we discuss global warming.
