we're borrowing money from china to buy oil from the persian gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the planet

What's interesting about Al Gore's challenge to quit burning coal and oil to generate electricity in 10 years are the reactions.  John McCain just says, "if the vice president says it's doable, I believe it's doable."  Not exactly climate change denying, there.   Barack Obama also points out that this challenge would CREATE many new jobs.

Can we do it in 10 years?  Beats me.  But it's worth a shot.  After all, it isn't just climate change, as Gore himself made clear in saying  "We're borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the planet."  As he said, all of this has to change.  And even if we don't get to 100%, any progress would be more than we've seen under de facto President George Oil Bush.
