(SALEM, Ore. ) - Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, who completed a rigorous training program led by former Vice President Al Gore, will give a free presentation about issues and solutions surrounding global warming tonight at 7:30 PM in Smith Auditorium at Willamette University.

Bradbury was part of a group of 50 individuals chosen to receive intensive training by Gore and a team of renowned scientists about global warming issues. Each received technical training to become experienced presenters of a version of Gore’s computer-based slide show, which became the basis of his best-selling book and documentary film, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

His Willamette visit is sponsored by Associated Students of Willamette University, Willamette Events Board and The New York Times.

“Bill Bradbury is an outstanding example of the millions of Americans who have been energized by the call to action on the climate crisis,” Gore said. “Bill will be spending the next year making presentations in and around Oregon discussing how individuals and businesses, schools and other organizations can be a major part of the solution to the growing crisis of global warming.”

Sallie Schullinger-Krause, the Oregon Environmental Council’s Global Warming Program Manager, said: “Bill Bradbury has become Oregon’s leader in global warming outreach. Not only has he tailored his presentation to include the very real effects of climate change on Oregon, but he has developed tools to help his audiences become part of the solution.”

The Oregon Environmental Council safeguards what Oregonians love about Oregon — clean air and water, an unpolluted landscape and healthy food produced by local farmers. For nearly 40 years the council has been a champion for solutions that protect the health of all Oregonians and the place they call home. Its vision for Oregon includes solving global warming, protecting children from toxins, cleaning up rivers, building sustainable economies, and ensuring healthy food and local farms.

Bradbury is simply starting his new employment career before he leaves office.

To those of you who laugh at global warming because of our extreme cold weather we are having, I highly recommend you go and educate yourself. I went to see Al Gore's presentation and own the Inconvenient Truth DVD. I relearned stuff I had forgotten since school and learned a lot of new things. By attending this and learning something, you won't sound ignorant when you say silly things about global warming not existing because we are having extreme weather. You see, that is one of the causes of global warming.

Intensive training? Puke. Global warming is the biggest fraud ever. I'm sure the Secretary won't come to the speech with his bicycle.
