[Music] Male Announcer:  All the Earth's creatures are threatened by global warming. 

One candidate for President is doing something to stop it: Chris Dodd. 

He's the only one with an energy plan that has a courageous Corporate Carbon Tax to transform American industry. 

It's the plan Al Gore and Bill Bradley call "creative," "honest and bold."

Chris Dodd:  I'm Chris Dodd, and I approved this message, because stopping global warming is in our hands.

Notes:  From the press release:
"With global warming affecting the health of our planet as well as our national security, we can't afford half-measures," said Dodd Campaign Manager Sheryl Cohen.  "Chris Dodd is the candidate that recognizes the urgency of the situation and is offering honest and bold solutions that turn our challenges into opportunities."

Dodd is the only candidate to call for a Corporate Carbon Tax, the proceeds from which -- estimated at approximately $50 billion annually -- would fund research into alternative energy sources in order to make America energy independent while taking the lead around the globe on solving the growing crisis of global climate change, all while creating new jobs for Americans.

Dodd's energy plan has won accolades from environmental leaders, including former Vice President Al Gore, who called the Dodd plan "very creative," and Senator John Kerry, who said it is "a serious policy to address a serious problem ... Americans are better off because of Chris' leadership."  "Chris Dodd gets it," said former Senator Bill Bradley.  Dodd's Corporate Carbon Tax, wrote the Los Angeles Times' Ron Brownstein, "sets Dodd apart from the field."
