Source: ENN, Date: November , 2009

On November 11, former Vice President Al Gore delivered a keynote speech to builders, architects, contractors and other professionals involved in the green building industry at Chase Field in Phoenix. The speech marked the kick off of the US Green Building Councilís (USBGC) three-day conference convening over 24,000 attendees.

Gore praised leadership of the USGBC for bringing real change to the marketplace, and for being a leader in the change for a sustainable future. He also thanked high school and college students around the country who have changed their course of study to one that will help solve the climate crisis. At the same time, he issued a call to action directed toward each member of the audience to personally strive to get involved in changing the future of our environment.
