We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Al Gore is associated, including Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump. Most recently, Al Gore has been quoted saying: “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 country.” in the article Al Gore Blasts Trump for ‘Normalizing’ Climate Change Denial in New Book: The ‘Future of Humanity’ Is at Risk.

Jul 12 2017

The Adani mine doesn't have its financing, I hope it never gets its financing. It's not my place to meddle with your politics, but truly, this is nuts.feedback

Jul 12 2017

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 crazy.feedback

Jul 12 2017

Most people assume that the coal industry is in a terminal decline. The market capitalisation of the global coal industry has declined … I think the figure is almost 90% in the last seven our eight years. It's quite dramatic. The world is turning away from coal.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - Slavery

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 revolution.feedback

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 about.feedback

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 people.feedback

While I strongly disagree with the court's decision, I accept the finality of this outcome.feedback

Jun 07 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 time. Jobs in the solar industry are increasing 17 times faster than other jobs are increasing in the U.S. Wind turbine technician. According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, that will be the fastest growing job in the next ten years.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Carbon

They have the legal right now to put up barriers against U.S. products that don't bear any price for carbon pollution.feedback

Jun 07 2017

The big change from 10 years ago is that solar, wind and other renewable technologies are now getting so cheap that it's easy to switch over. If we all make up our minds to do this, we can all solve the climate crisis.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

We're going to meet the commitments under the climate agreement, regardless of what President Trump does.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - London

I don't think that a major terrorist attack like this is the time to be divisive and to criticize a mayor who's trying to organize his city's response to this attack. The terrorists want us to live in a state of constant fear.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

I thought that he would come to his senses on it, but he didn't.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Carbon

I was like a lot of guys in that when I came back from Vietnam, I had this pull to go back over there. It's hard to explain. . . . You come back home, and life is not as vivid. . . . Maybe because it was an unfinished experience. . . . I found it quite a growth experience.feedback

May 22 2017 - Trump administration

May 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

The Paris agreement has an historic significance of its own. And if the largest economy in the world were to withdraw, it would present a risk that some other countries might use that as an excuse. So it's important that we stay in.feedback

May 22 2017 - French election 2017

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 it.feedback

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, Georgia.feedback

May 22 2017 - Liberty Party of Canada

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 that.feedback

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 action.feedback

May 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

The prospects of going back to the age of coal are zero. Donald Trump's promises to the coal miners cannot be fulfilled as he made them, but he could, if he chose, put them to work in the solar industry.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Carbon

It is essential, not only to our planet, but also to our economic future, that the United States continues to serve as a global leader in solving the climate crisis by transitioning to clean energy, a transition that will continue to gain speed due to the increasing competiveness of solar and wind.feedback

Mar 26 2017

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 city.feedback

Mar 23 2017

First of all, I think there is still a realistic chance that President Trump will decide not to pull the United States out of the Paris agreement. That decision has not been made. But there is an active debate in his inner circle. I have some visibility to that debate, I don't know what's going to happen, but I think there's still a chance that he will not pull out of the Paris agreement.feedback

May 25 2009 - Carbon

At this moment we are facing three inter related crises in the world, the climate crisis, the economic crisis and the energy security concerns that have been factors in wars and political and military tensions. There is a common thread linking all of these threes crises, it is our absurd overdependence on carbon based fuels.feedback

Oct 12 2007

We're going to donate 100% of the amount of this award to the Alliance for Climate protection. That amount is very small, compared with the enormous challenge that lies ahead.
