On Monday, President Bush rolled back an Executive Order originally signed by his Dad as a first step toward re-opening all of America's coastline to offshore oil drilling. Some of you saw this as an overdue necessity, and some saw a failure of leadership.
Through much of the current discussion about oil prices, discussions about global warming and conserving energy have melted away. Enter former Vice President Al Gore, who's scheduled a speech at 12 noon ET Thursday. CNN plans to carry the speech live, but we'd love to hear what you think.
