What is the common thread between the economic, national security and climate crisis?

Here’s what Al Gore had to say at the 2nd annual National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas:  “The economic crisis, the security crisis and the climate crisis are all intertwined, and the common thread running through them is our absurd and dangerous overdependence on carbon-based fuels … If you grab hold of the thread and pull on it, all three of these crises will unravel, and we’ll hold in our hand the solution to all three of them.  That is to make a transition to a low-carbon economy and put people to work doing it.” (emphasis added)
