Barack Obama and Joe Biden sat down with former Vice President Al Gore yesterday to discuss energy and climate change and “how policies in this area can stimulate the economy and create jobs.”

Obama has yet to name his Environmental Team — including energy secretary, interior secretary and Environmental Protection Agency administrator. While rumors have been circulating that Al Gore might be offered a position, Gore’s made it clear that he has no interest.

But even if Al Gore doesn’t have an official position, President-elect Barack Obama has been clear that he will look to the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Vice President for advice. In April, Barack said: “Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem.”

Besides the previously announced jobs available, the cabinet also will create a brand new “climate czar” position. Sexy!

Sounds to me like Obama’s on the right track to get this planet fixed! I’m excited! Are you?

    I couldn’t be happier! I am glad that after so much time we are starting to see that it isn’t our economy or our environment but that our economy and our environment are dependant on each other.

    “Sounds to me like Obama’s on the right track to get this planet fixed! I’m excited! Are you?”

    roflmao OH YEAH (snark-if you couldn’t tell). So, will the Car Czar fix the auto industry too? Just as long as it’s not the way the Drug Czar went. LOL

    Another key environmental appointment is the Secretary of Agriculture. So far, the names being floated are all those with backgrounds in traditional ag. There is an effort to encourage him to make a more sustainable choice. Check out http://www.fooddemocracynow.org and http://www.fooddeclaration.org for more info.
