Former Vice-President Al Gore will testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on climate change next Wednesday, January 28. Gore will discuss the latest climate change science and the implications for the future of our planet.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA) invited Gore. Kerry said:

Al Gore has been sounding the alarm on climate change for over three decades, and he understands the urgent need for American engagement and leadership on this issue. America must act decisively in order for the nations of the world to reach agreement on a climate change treaty at the December 2009 meeting of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen, Denmark. The timeline is short for us to respond to the threat of climate change, and this hearing will examine what America must do to lead the world in crafting a truly global solution.
