In August and October, Mr. Gore delivered speeches sponsored by MoveOn that opened a space for other leaders to speak out against the Bush Administration's deliberate use of false impressions to mislead the nation on war, taxes, the economy and the environment. Those speeches did nothing less than shift the terms of the national debate, and we expect this speech to have as big an impact.

Former Vice President Al Gore's speech on global warming at the Beacon Theater will be webcast from this page after the talk is finished. The webcast will begin 2:30 pm, Thursday, January 15, 2004.
In this, his third major speech sponsored by MoveOn, Mr. Gore will issue an indictment of the Bush administration's inaction on global warming, linking the issue to national security. He will show that global warming is not a future threat -- it is happening now. And yet, the President is choosing to help his coal- and oil-company supporters rather than advance modern technologies that can affordably solve this critical problem.
In November 2003, Mr. Gore delivered a MoveOn-sponsored speech in Washington, D.C. exposing the Bush/Ashcroft assault on our civil liberties as a smokescreen that obscures the Administration's fundamental failure to meaningfully protect our national security. And last August, Mr. Gore delivered a speech sponsored by MoveOn describing the Bush administration's deliberate use of false impressions to mislead the nation on war, taxes, the economy and the environment.
Both speeches did nothing less than shift the terms of the national debate, and we expect this speech to have an even bigger impact as Mr. Gore reveals the catastrophic result of current environmental and energy policies pursued by the Bush administration.
