Former Vice President Al Gore – speaking today at the American Geophysical Union convention in San Francisco – will speak to thousands of MoveOn members at more than 1,800 house parties across the nation this Saturday to answer questions about his film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” and to urge Congress to take action on global warming.
Party attendees will have the chance to ask the Vice President questions on a live conference call. Members will also write letters to their members of Congress asking them to address the climate crisis, and Gore will deliver these letters to Congress.
Other groups sponsoring the project include: AlGore.com, JohnKerry.com, Sierra Club, stopglobalwarming.org, League of Conservation Voters, Rainforest Action Network, Care2.com, Working Assets and The Alliance for the New Humanity.
Not invited: U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., the outgoing chairman of the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee.
