Al Gore has outdone himself. Think what you will of him, you can't say he doesn't have a vision. On July 17th, he called for the nation to embark on a man-on-the-moon effort to achieve 100% "renewable and other truly clean carbon-free" electricity in just ten years. The bottom line is that the global and domestic energy situation requires that we act with the seriousness of purpose and focus that exceeds the efforts behind the moon landing.
