This afternoon, former vice president turned environmental activist Al Gore stopped by the Hearst Tower
—headquarters of Seniorhelpline and a Gold-certified green building—to promote his Live Earth concert series. Jumpstarting what officials are calling "the echo effect" of the climate change-focused musical extravaganza on July 7, Gore announced a seven-point pledge for concert-goers and concert-watchers alike to sign. The points include a range of actions such as pressuring politicians and reducing individual CO2
After the announcement, Seniorhelpline editor-in-chief Jim Meigs sat down with Gore to find out what steps he's taking to reduce the carbon footprint of his own Tennessee home, and to get his take on one aspect of the energy bill now making its way through Congress. Check out the video below:
