Saving the Green?

It's all over the news, Al Gore is out to stop global warming and he wants you, me, EVERYONE to join him.

ARTICLE 1

Former Vice President Al Gore is launching a $300 million, bipartisan campaign to try to push climate change higher on the nation’s political agenda. The campaign is being paid for in part with profits from Gore’s global-warming book and movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” and with the prize money from his share of the Nobel Peace Prize, which he matched.

ARTICLE 2
While “An Inconvenient Truth” urged viewers to fully inflate their car tires and to install compact fluorescent light bulbs to combat global warming, Gore said he is now focused on ensuring that the United States enacts a national carbon emission cap and ratifies a new global pact on climate change in the next three years.“The simple algorithm is this: It’s important to change the light bulbs, but it’s much more important to change the laws,” he said.

RE: S.E.W.

Regardless of the your personal beliefs on global warming, I fail to see how adopting any of the recommended changes would be anything but good. Reduced energy use and less dependance upon oil would be great in every conceivable way, especially in the Christian area of good stewardship of resources. I just don't think that it matters the reason for doing these things, they make sense in the long term no matter what.
