Al Gore


Last quote by Al Gore

It's a classic political effort to have things both ways. He's made his decision but he wants to give the other side a faint hope that ... that he might yet change his mind. It's pointless for me to continue trying to persuade him to change his mind. Can somebody else? (German) Chancellor Angela Merkel? (Japanese) Prime Minister (Shinzo) Abe? Somebody else? I don't know. I doubt

But whether that happens or not, U.S. states and cities and businesses and industries are moving forward. The projections now indicate that the United States will meet the commitments made at Paris whether it is affirmed by the federal government or

Sep 13 2017

Governments can be very fickle. But once there is a big shift in the investment marketplace, then that generates a momentum that's really

Sep 13 2017

But investors who can adopt a clearer view of where we're going in the future have the opportunity and, I would argue, the obligation to their asset owners and their clients to really advocate for a clear-eyed view of where we should be going instead of surrendering to the narrow interests that some of these lobbying communities are

Sep 13 2017

This community [of investors] can avoid an avoidable risk and seize the greatest opportunities in the history of business and commerce by looking clearly at the new reality we face and deploying assets

Aug 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don't stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger. What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come

Aug 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

The entire world the next day re-doubled their commitments to the Paris agreement and in the U.S, the governors of our largest states and hundreds of mayors, thousands of business leaders all stood up to fill the gap and said 'We are still in the Paris agreement'. I do think that the reaction to Donald Trump is actually driving much more momentum in the climate

Aug 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

It is a setback, but not the worst setback we have received. I have seen a lot of setbacks over the years. The damage I feared Trump would do has turned out to be less than I

Aug 10 2017

In the crowded social-media environment, points of view are displacing facts, and that's created a space in which well-made documentaries have become the most powerful and effective way to deliver a message with integrity. We can solve

Jul 29 2017

In order to fix the climate crisis, we need to first fix the government crisis. Big money has so much influence

Jul 29 2017

I mean that those with access to large amounts of money and raw power, have been able to subvert all reason and fact in collective decision making. The Koch brothers are the largest funders of climate change denial. And ExxonMobil claims it has stopped, but it really hasn't. It has given a quarter of a billion dollars in donations to climate denial groups. It's clear they are trying to cripple our ability to respond to this existential

Jul 29 2017 - Populism

I was wrong. On the other hand, two-thirds of the American people are convinced that it's an extremely serious crisis and we have to take it on. And there is a law of physics that every action produces an equal and opposite reaction. And I do think there is a reaction to the Trump/Brexit/Alt-Right populist authoritarianism around the world. People who took liberal democracy more or less for granted are now awakening to a sense that it can only be defended by the people

Jul 29 2017 - G20

Based on what he told me, I definitely thought there was a better than even chance he might choose to stay in. But I was wrong. I was fearful that other countries for whom it was a close call would follow his lead, but I'm thrilled the reaction has been exactly the opposite. The other 19 members of the G20 have reiterated that Paris is irreversible. And governors and mayors all over the country have been saying we are all still in and, in fact, it's just going to make us redouble our

Jul 27 2017 - LGBT

I wish that he would really start addressing real issues like the climate crisis. But a quick true story about the tweets this morning. There were three of them, and the first one was just 'After consulting with my my military leaders I have decided that…' And then there were 10 minutes before the next one and apparently people in the Pentagon were like, Oh my god we're going to war!feedback

Jul 25 2017

It is not an overstatement to say that the entire future of humanity depends upon whether or not we rise to the challenge before

Jul 25 2017 - Climate change

President Donald Trump once called climate change a Chinese hoax (although he later claimed he was joking), and the man he appointed to head the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, even denied the most basic scientific finding concerning global warming: that CO2 emissions trap heat in the atmosphere. That fact was proven by scientists more than 150 years ago! These misinformation efforts have thus far been all too effective. They've obstructed progress by normalizing outright denial of science so effectively that the U.S. has more climate change deniers than any other

Jul 25 2017

What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true. What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don't stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger… We are in a race against

Jul 21 2017 - EPA

Trump has surrounded himself with climate deniers, They're doing their best to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency and anything that promotes good policies to solve the climate crisis. It was cordial and mutually respectful and he listened and participated. I came away with the impression that he would come to his

Jul 19 2017

Young people are one of the greatest reasons for hope that we can and will solve the climate crisis, and I am thrilled to participate in An Inconvenient Special to listen to their ideas, hopes, and concerns, as well as learn about some of their amazing work on behalf of the planet. Young people today are creative, open-minded, empathetic, and they understand the enormous impact the climate crisis will have on them and their families. They're ready to make a change and put us on the path to a sustainable future, and I have no doubt in my mind they will be the generation to do

Jul 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

Immediately after that, all the other countries in the world doubled down and said, we're going to do even more. And here in the U.S., a lot of our most important governors and majors and business leaders said, we're still in the Paris agreement, and we're going to meet the commitments of the country regardless of what Donald Trump

Globally, the world is moving rapidly away from subsidies to fossil fuels. It would be odd if Australia went in the opposite direction and subsidised coal. It's impolitic of me to say it, but it would be

There is now in our world a sustainability revolution and it's best understood, in my view, by placing it in the context of other great global transformations – the agricultural revolution, the industrial revolution, the digital revolution. This sustainability revolution has the breadth and magnitude of the industrial revolution but it has the speed of the digital

Jun 21 2017 - Slavery

When the central issue was thus framed in stark relief because of who we are as human beings, the outcome became foreordained. We chose what was right, and now in this case it is clearly wrong to destroy the prospects of living prosperously and sustainably on a clean earth when we bequeath it to our children. It is wrong to use the sky as an open sewer, it is wrong to condemn future generations to a lifetime haunted by continual declines in their standard of living, and give them a world of political disruption and all the chaos that the scientists have warned us

Jun 21 2017 - Slavery

Instead of beginning in a corner of the UK in a world of 1.5bn people, and then slowly spreading to western Europe and North America, this sustainability revolution is being jump started in rich and poor countries alike in every corner of this world of 7.4 billion

What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true. What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don't stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger. We are in a race against time. Jobs in the solar industry are increasing 17 times faster than other jobs are increasing in the U.S. Wind turbine technician.

I met with President Macron in the days during the Paris conference and was very impressed with him. And since his election he has appointed Nicolas Hulot as the head of his environmental transition and made the climate crisis a top priority, and announced new policies. I couldn't be more impressed with what he's doing and I'm very optimistic about

May 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't know what [Trump's decision] will be, but I think there's an excellent chance that he will surprise many by deciding to stay in the Paris agreement. But in the first four months of his presidency, we have already learned that he cannot stop the solutions to the climate crisis. Large states like New York, California and many others are moving faster than the commitments made by President Obama during the Paris agreement. Cities are now deciding to go 100% renewable – most recently Atlanta,

Justin Trudeau has been a breath of fresh air, although I will add there are many in the environmental movement in Canada who are expressing some concern about the encouragement of the Tar Sands development in Alberta. I like Justin but I will put a little asterisk on

May 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

The dangers we face from the climate crisis are now more severe than what the scientists predicted. It has gotten worse. But the primary message of the movie is: we now have the solutions available. We can solve this. And we are beginning to implement these solutions. But the main challenge is to summon sufficient political will to implement these solutions and that's why this movie has the message: it's time for

People admire and respect the decision that Barack and Michelle Obama made as parents to minimize the disruption to their children. When I left my job in the White House, my kids were out of high school. If they had still been in grade school or high school, I might have well made the decision to stay in the
