Al Gore: Environmental Solutions Equal Economic Solutions

on

When economy and environment are pitted against each other (a la Stephen Harper) we are manipulated into thinking that we must sacrifice one in order to achieve success with the other. In fact, our economies depend on the environment – without the resources that this earth provides we wouldn’t have an economy to operate and when those resources start to run out, cause serious security issues and create major environmental damage, then we are in grave danger of losing more than just our pay cheques.

It’s common sense then, that the two operate in tandem – what happens to the environment will ultimately effect our economy. That’s why Al Gore has framed it so well in his latest Op-Ed piece for the New York Times this past weekend.

Mr. Gore notes that the steps needed to solve the climate crisis are exactly the same steps that are needed to solve the economic crises. He also rats out so called “clean coal” which is a refreshing directional change from the heavy advertising that the clean coal lobbyists have been spending as of late.
