Environmental Business Leaders Endorse Al Gore

Sunday, November 5, 2000


Praise His Plans to Extend Prosperity, Protect the Environment

NASHVILLE -- Nearly 100 environmental business leaders from across the country today endorsed Al Gore, praising his plans to extend prosperity and protect the environment. Gore has a bold agenda to clean up the environment and curtail global warming, while creating jobs and strengthening the economy at the same time. Gore will eliminate the national debt to help keep interest rates lower, fueling investment, innovation, and growth.

"Al Gore has stood up for environmental protection and economic progress through his entire career," said Richard Goodstein, president of Goodstein & Associates. "He understands that such reinforcements not only benefit the environment, but also spur new technologies and invigorate the economy. Our economic success comes with the responsibility to safeguard our nation's air, land and water."

Gore's economic plan would eliminate the national debt and its interest payments, while offering family tax cuts. To help extend the new economy to benefit all families, Gore would fight for a smaller, smarter government that stays out of the way. His plan would reduce government spending, as a share of the economy, to its lowest level in 50 years.

Gore would make aggressive investments to encourage innovation, fighting for the largest-ever expansion of tax credits to encourage research and experimentation in the private sector. He would fight to reform schools and make skills training more available. He would ensure strong privacy protections, so that citizens'medical and financial records are protected online and otherwise.

Gore has called for making the next 10 years the Environment Decade, an initiative that includes broad goals to protect public lands and clean up the nation's air and water. His plan would encourage smarter community growth and invest more in conservation. It would take steps to reverse the rise in global warming.

Gore would dedicate portion of the expected budget surplus to create a new National Energy Security and Environment Trust Fund that would help industries reduce dangerous emissions and offer tax breaks up to $6,000 for consumers who purchase more fuel-efficient cars, trucks and homes. He would invest in cleaner and safer buses, new rail systems and increase the reliability of the power grid.

Gore has been a leader throughout his career on the environment and the economy. As vice president, he cast the tie-breaking vote to pass the 1993 economic plan, which cut the deficit and helped balance the budget for the first time in a generation. He chaired some of the first Congressional hearings on toxic-waste clean up that laid the groundwork for passage of the Superfund Act. Along with the Big Three automakers, he led the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV) that has helped spur new technologies that give consumers cars that use less gas and create less pollution.
