Al Gore's movie

An Inconvenient Truth

won him an Oscar, and yet,

much of the movie is nonsense.

"Sea levels may rise 20 feet"

is absurd!

But this is Al Gore.

He always goes down the road

of hyperbole.

Not only is he losing

the argument

on climate change,

but he's losing the science

as well.

You don't go

see Joseph Goebbels' films

to see the truth

about Nazi Germany.

You don't want

to go see Al Gore's film

to see the truth

about global warming.

And it's the most severe

winter storm in years,

which would seem to contradict

Al Gore's hysterical

global warming theories.

Donald Trump says

he's had it up to here

with Al Gore

and is calling for the

Nobel Peace Prize committee

to take the prize away.

Yes or no, do you believe

that human-caused global warming

is a moral,

ethical, and spiritual issue

affecting our survival?

Yes, I do.

Yes or no,

do you believe that reducing

fossil fuel-based energy usage

will lead to lower

greenhouse gas emissions?

Basically, yes.

I don't think we...

That's... That's good.

Senator Gore...

If I could just, uh, continue...

Well, you can't.

Now, it seems

that everything is blamed

on global warming.

Last summer, we had a

heat wave, and everyone said,

"Oh, that's proof

it's global warming."

Then we had a mild December.

"Oh, that's proof"

"it's global warming

that's taking place."

Now, I wonder how come you guys

never seem to notice it

when it gets cold?

The National Academy of Sciences

here in this country

and in the 16

largest or most-developed

countries in the world

agrees with the consensus

that I've stated.

Senator Gore, my time

is almost expired completely.

Are you aware of that?

It seems that everybody...

I would like to respond.

May I respond?

...global warming in

the media joined the chorus...

Excuse me, Senator Imhofe.

How can you ask a question

and not give the man

a minute to answer?

Please.

Senator, thank you. Um...

I've been sitting here

trying to think

what I could do or say

that, uh...

That might make it possible

to reach out to you.

And I'm serious about this.

I'd love to, um,

talk with you

without the cameras

and without the lights and...

And tell you, uh,

why I feel so strongly

about this.

And we've got to call the other,

I think, three or four speakers

for the Generation Client

Conference, too.

All right, so now back to

the Paris conference.

I'd like a briefing on

the must-do meetings in Paris.

And I'll circle back

to Christiana

well before then

on how I can best help her.

I need to talk to

Secretary Kerry

- about the long-term goal.

- Mmm-hmm.

I want to schedule

the China climate training

during the first three months

of the year.

I think it would be good

to lock that down.

Yeah, definitely.

Morning. Morning.

Thank you for your help.

Since An Inconvenient Truth

came out ten years ago,

climate-related

extreme weather events

have gotten so much worse.

And so I've continued

to give my slideshow

all around the world.

Now, I want to add

the latest images

of the flooding going on

right now in Louisiana.

Okay, I think both of those'll

fit really well there.

I mean, every week now

this stuff

just keeps getting worse

and more of it.

But...

Actually, there were times when

it really looked bleak and dark

because the forces trying

to stop the change regrouped

and poured tons of money

in trying to paralyze

the political system

in the U.S.

and in other countries.

I got really discouraged.

And there came a time for me

when I felt, wow, we could

lose this struggle.

Al Gore

Albert Arnold Gore Jr. (born March 31, 1948) is an American politician and environmentalist who served as the 45th Vice President of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Gore was Bill Clinton's running mate in their successful campaign in 1992, and the pair was re-elected in 1996. Near the end of Clinton's second term, Gore was selected as the Democratic nominee for the 2000 presidential election but lost the election in a very close race after a Florida recount. After his term as vice-president ended in 2001, Gore remained prominent as an author and environmental activist, whose work in climate change activism earned him (jointly with the IPCC) the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. Gore was an elected official for 24 years. He was a Representative from Tennessee (1977–85) and from 1985 to 1993 served as one of the state's Senators. He served as Vice President during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 2001. The 2000 presidential election was one of the closest presidential races in history. Gore won the popular vote, but after a controversial election dispute over a Florida recount (settled by the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled 5–4 in favor of Bush), he lost the election to Republican opponent George W. Bush in the Electoral College. Gore is the founder and current chair of the Alliance for Climate Protection, the co-founder and chair of Generation Investment Management and the now-defunct Current TV network, a member of the Board of Directors of Apple Inc., and a senior adviser to Google. Gore is also a partner in the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, heading its climate change solutions group. He has served as a visiting professor at Middle Tennessee State University, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Fisk University, and the University of California, Los Angeles. He served on the Board of Directors of World Resources Institute.Gore has received a number of awards that include the Nobel Peace Prize (joint award with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2007), a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album (2009) for his book An Inconvenient Truth, a Primetime Emmy Award for Current TV (2007), and a Webby Award (2005). Gore was also the subject of the Academy Award-winning (2007) documentary An Inconvenient Truth in 2006. In 2007, he was named a runner-up for Time's 2007 Person of the Year. more…
