For Immediate Release
"Gore's speech on climate change is an important reminder of what is at stake in this election. As Gore points out, the Bush Administration has retreated from U.S. leadership, hidden the facts on the reality of global warming, and put energy lobbyists in charge of environmental regulation.
"Al Gore is right. The earth is a small planet where wind and water, poison and pollution know no borders. We need to return America to its rightful place as a leader on climate change and that requires a President who is respectful and committed to the global community. I am running for President to take on the special interests that stand in the way of protecting our planet and to create a new era of alliances where we can all work together to preserve our environment for the future."
