On 7.7.07 more than two billion people will come together during the
Live Earth concert.

Let’s use this moment to pledge our support to solving the climate
crisis.

Sign the Live Earth Pledge

On 7.7.07 more than two billion people will come together during Live
Earth. That number is unfathomable - more than one-fourth of the
world’s population will participate in a single event and demand a
solution to the climate crisis. This unique moment presents us with a
unique choice.

Do we use this unprecedented opportunity to organize a global
movement that will last beyond 7.7.07? Or do we let the moment pass?

I know my answer - and I think I know yours. That’s why I am issuing
this challenge: Let’s use this moment to pledge our support to
solving the climate crisis. Just as important – let’s ask everyone we
know to join us as part of this movement.

The 7.7.07 Live Earth Pledge:

I PLEDGE:

1. To demand that my country join an international treaty within the
next 2 years that cuts global warming pollution by 90% in developed
countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next
generation to inherit a healthy earth;

2. To take personal action to help solve the climate crisis by
reducing my own CO2 pollution as much as I can and offsetting the
rest to become "carbon neutral;"

3. To fight for a moratorium on the construction of any new
generating facility that burns coal without the capacity to safely
trap and store the CO2;

4. To work for a dramatic increase in the energy efficiency of my
home, workplace, school, place of worship, and means of transportation;

5. To fight for laws and policies that expand the use of renewable
energy sources and reduce dependence on oil and coal;

6. To plant new trees and to join with others in preserving and
protecting forests; and,

7. To buy from businesses and support leaders who share my commitment
to solving the climate crisis and building a sustainable, just, and
prosperous world for the 21st century.

Together we were able to make March’s Congressional hearings a huge
moment by collecting more than 500,000 messages and demonstrating the
significant public support for solving the climate crisis to our
elected leaders and the media. Our next opportunity to demonstrate
this growing movement will come on 7.7.07

Live Earth will not just be a 24-hour concert – but the launch of a
massive campaign to demonstrate that the political will exists to
solve the climate crisis.

As our movement grows larger we will shake loose the paralysis
currently gripping our political system. Working together we can get
it done.

Thank you,


Al Gore
