Team Effort to Save the Planet

Ad Feedback - Pat Robertson, Al Sharpton and Al Gore may not share many of the same views but they all agree we need to protect the planet.

That belief brought the three together on Wednesday as part of a multi-million dollar ad campaign by Gore's nonprofit agency, the Alliance for Climate Protection.

The former vice president talks more about the campaign Sunday on the CBS News program "60 Minutes."

Robertson says Gore personally asked him to be involved.

"I am honored that Al Gore asked me to be a part of this campaign urging people to take care of the planet," Robertson said. "I have always supported clean air, clean water and the reduction of acid rain. It's just common sense that we ought to be good stewards of the environment and do everything within our power to protect this fragile planet that we all live on."

The ad features a couch on the beach with Sharpton sitting on the left and Robertson on the right.

Other odd couples will reportedly appear in later ads, including Toby Keith and the Dixie Chicks and Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich.

Gore, a Nobel prizewinner and filmmaker, has been one of the leading voices for the international efforts on climate protection.

While Pat Robertson has never taken a position on the question of global warming, he does share Gore's concern for being a good environmental steward and doing everything within our power to protect our natural resources.

You can hear Pat Robertson talk about the environment and his reasons for being part of the ad on Monday's 700 Club, March 31.
