 "For those who want to attack my view, let me save you the trouble of reading the entire book. On pages 325-6, I wrote, ‘It ought to be possible to establish a coordinated global program to accomplish the strategic goal of completely eliminating the internal combustion engine over, say, a 25-year period.' It is possible; it needs to be done; it will create more jobs, not destroy jobs. I'm proud that I wrote those words in 1992, and I reaffirm them today."  Al Gore in the new foreword to Earth in the Balance.
