Obama Gets Al Gore's Help To Choose Environmental Team

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?
