Green stars Al Gore and Sheryl Crow have officially signed on to take part in the U.S. Green Building Council’s 2009 Greenbuild convention.

The event is being held from November 11th to 13th in Phoenix, Arizona and is expecting roughly 30,000 participants. WHOA!!

Gore will deliver the keynote address and nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow will entertain at the opening ceremony at Chase Field on Wednesday, November 11th.

Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council said:

“Al Gore’s impressive career and bipartisan outreach have helped elevate global climate change to the main street public consciousness. The role buildings play in our lives, our health, the economy and the global environment – including being responsible for 39 percent of the carbon emitted in the United States – means the built environment is a tremendous opportunity for us to make real change, and Vice President Gore’s keynote address will be an inspiration to the Greenbuild community to make 2010 yet another banner year for green building innovation and growth.”

    Sigh, disappointing. Here you have the Obama administration giving its OK to build a pipeline from Canada to the US to pump in dirty tar sands crude which is one of the largest contributions to CO2 emissions, and Al Gore says nothing about it now when he was so outraged about it previously. Here you have the Obama EPA issuing certificates to allow mountain top removal mining ponds, and Al Gore asys nothing about it. What happened to his voice? Is all he does now is go to these star studded events to makes fees? Where is the environmental leadership I respect him for?

    I so agree with you. I am very disillusioned with Gore. Cap and Trade just seems like a scheme to profit from the environment. I just read an article about a free energy machine from Australia. Gore has the money to promote and build these types of machines, yet he’s nowhere to be found. Walter Russell also gave this type of info and created a machine for free energy back in the early 1900′s. I think we are going to have to do this on our own as it appears Gore has (or has always been) gone to the dark side.

    No wonder Sheryl Crow signed up too. I saw the Oscar party pictures…. way too close to Al Gore.
