Gore Urges People to Act on Climate Change

Here is an excerpt from the article on All Headline News:

More than 20,000 people in close to 2,000 living rooms throughout the country watched Gore's documentary on global warming Saturday night.
The event, hosted by Gore and Move On, a Political Action Committee with more than 3.3 million members, featured the film "Inconvenient Truth."
Gore, from his Nashville, Tenn. home, spent 30 minutes on a conference call and answered questions from those who were tuned in via computers and telephones.

"All we are missing (to stop this) is political will, and that is a renewable resource," Gore said.

Gore asked the more than 20,000 to help him and organize a mass movement around global warming.
"The American political system is seemingly paralyzed by this issue," Gore said. "And when that becomes the case, then this is when the grassroots movement has to get mobilized."
Gore said the U.S. is responsible for contributing to more than 30 percent of the climate crisis.
"It's not a political issue as much as a moral one," Gore said. "And to allow this to happen is unethical."
