Taking your name to the Bali Climate Conference delegates

6 12 2007

From an email I received this week:

Dear Friend,

In Bali, Indonesia thousands of delegates from nearly 190 countries have gathered at the UN Conference on Climate Change. In ten days, I will address the conference to urge the adoption of a visionary new treaty to address global warming and I want to bring your voices with me.

Click here to sign my petition today and I will bring your signatures on stage with me as a clear demonstration of our resolve :http://climateprotect.org/standwithal

Together, we will call on the US government to assume a new leadership role in solving the climate crisis.

World leaders including British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and newly elected Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd have all agreed to aggressively battle the climate crisis – yet our country still lags behind.

Over the next ten days, I would like you to help me get people from across the country to sign our message to the global community. We can demonstrate that the American people understand the immediacy of the climate crisis and want to work with the nations of the world to solve it.

Time is short – we need to mobilize everyone to bring this message to Bali: http://climateprotect.org/standwithal

The American people want a visionary treaty to address climate change and for the US government to play a positive leadership role in its development.

Thank you,

Al Gore.

P.S. After signing the petition, please urge your friends and family to sign the petition and join the movement. http://climateprotect.org/standwithal

UPDATE: Australians may wish to follow this link to the getup site to sign the petition.

Oooh! I got all excited then and thought it was you going to Bali… not enough sleep….

I chewed it over with Mr Gore and we agreed that he was probably marginally more popular, well-known and knowledgeable. So I stood aside. Was that the right thing to do?

(Actually Ruth it is my fault that the extract from an email appeared in the first person without obvious quotation formatting. Fixed now I hope. Your lack of sleep isn’t at fault- but hey go get some more anyway)

Perhaps you could go anyway? Say hi to Schapelle for me.
