Time for Gore to walk the walk

Gore Calls for Civil Disobedience at Clinton Global Initiative.

At today’s Clinton Global Initiative, Al Gore said for the first time in public that we are at a point in our world’s history, and in need of such immediate action, that if you are a young person it’s time for civil disobedience.

Why is this a young person’s responsibility? The leaders of the Free South Africa movement were middle aged. What’s Gore’s problem? If he thinks the situation calls for civil disobedience, then he needs to lead the demonstrations. I am sure it would be big news and that he would not be short of followers.

Put up or shut up.
