Al Gore to Address Congress on Climate Change

He'll be addressing the Democratic caucus, anyway - I'm sure the republicans don't want to hear it.

For House Democrats, they are looking to gain some insight from Gore, who stars in the new global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," that just debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Democrats will spend the next three days in Williamsburg, Virginia discussing how best to promote the party's goals on the environment and other policy matters as well as discuss political strategy for the midterm elections.

"This important event enables our caucus to explore issues in-depth that are important to the American people like national security, health care, immigration, and the lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina," House Democratic Caucus Chairman James Clyburn (South Carolina) tells the Grind. The Democrats will also hear from several governors and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who delivered the Spanish version of his party's response to President Bush's State of the Union address.

Sing it, Al!

Really good news, Ced.

The general reactions to Al's speech from Dems had so far been that they were silently adopting his message (which is good by itself, and my guess is that Gore wanted just that), but going a step further and have him deliver an address is even better both for his cause (climate change amelioration). And ours (making him president!) :)

thanks to you for the post and to P4AG for posting the dKos diary.
