Gore launches $300 million climate change campaign

Nobel laureate and former US vice-president Al Gore launched a three-year US$300 million campaign on Monday to mobilise Americans to fight climate change, Reuters reported.
"We can solve the climate crisis, but it will require a major shift in public opinion and engagement," Gore was quoted as saying. "The
technologies exist, but our elected leaders don’t yet have the political will to take the bold actions required. When politicians
hear the American people calling loud and clear for change, they’ll listen."
Environmental activist Gore chairs the Alliance for Climate Protection, which unveiled the ‘We’ campaign. Cathy Zoi, the
alliance’s chief executive officer, said that the US needs new laws to limit the greenhouse-gas emissions spurring climate change.
