By now you should be familiar with the name Al Gore - not only did he serve as Vice President from 1993 to 2001 under President Clinton, but he also ran for presidency in 2000 against George Bush; despite winning the popular vote he lost the election. Today however, Al Gore is primarily associated with another topic - and that is global warming. In fact, the younger generation may recognize the name mainly from the film "An Inconvenient Truth".

But in reality, Al Gore is a bigger pioneer and activist against global warming than one might think; to the point where has become the most influential figure in the fight against climate change today. But Al Gore has done more than just write a book and star in a movie about global warming; he is actually working to help make a change and has even been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work. Let's take a look at some of the other things Al Gore has done in the effort to combat climate change and global warming.

- The Alliance for Climate Protection. Created by Mr. Gore in 2006 and funded primarily by Al Gore's own work, and receiving a portion of their funding from the nationally-recognized Live Earth concerts, their main goal is to enlighten and educate the public on the dangers of global warming and climate change in the 21st century.


- Live Earth. A series of concerts under the name of "Live Earth", which Al Gore was at least partially responsible for planning and organizing. The Live Earth 2007 events took place all over the world, in locations such as Tokyo, London, Rome, Washington D.C., New Jersey, and even Antarctica, just to name a few. Events were also broadcast to radios, televisions, and even streamed on the internet in order to reach as many viewers as possible.

- Numerous speeches and interviews. Over the past several years, Gore has been a relentless crusader in spreading his message. He's appeared on all of the major television networks and news programs, and he has been interviewed for every major publication you can think of - all of which helps to nail his point home.

- Redesigned his house to meet stricter environmental standards. Because Al Gore truly believes in the need to combat climate change and global warming, he has even given his own home an overhaul; renovations which have earned his home the second highest rating for sustainable design by the U.S. Green Building Council.


Al Gore and his philanthropy, the Alliance for Climate Protection has entered into an integrated partnership with Dot Eco, to secure and promote the .eco top level domain. This new initiative backed by Dot Eco LLC, will donate over 50% of the proceeds back to fund scientific initiatives and research in climate change, ocean analysis, economic policy, and other environmentally-related areas. Dot Eco is a powerful and truly innovative initiative and with Al Gore's support can act as a strong force in the fight against global warming.
