For the second in its series of videos titled “Unlikely Alliances”, the $300 million dollar WE initiative (sponsored by Al Gore’s Alliance For Climate Protection) has brought together Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

In the ad, Pelosi and Gingrich admit they don’t always see eye-to-eye, but believe the country must put aside its political difference and come together to fight climate change. How that happens, however, still remains a difference between the two politicians. As the SFGate reports, Pelosi supports a “mandatory cap-and-trade system to reduce emissions, while Gingrich would rather use tax credits and other incentives to get industry to switch to low-carbon technologies.”

Said Cathy Zoi, CEO of the Alliance for Climate Protection, “By bringing together top Republicans and Democrats, we are demonstrating both to the American public and to lawmakers that we can and must overcome partisan differences to solve the climate crisis.”
