Al Gore Blasts Trump on Climate Change

Former Vice-President and environmental activist Al Gore said on Wednesday that President Trump’s “climate denial” could actually boost global efforts to tackle it.

“It may be a perverse step forward to have Donald J. Trump as the global face of climate denial because so much of what he says is nonsense,” Gore told an audience on the sidelines of the United Nations climate summit in Katowice, Poland. He added that he thinks conservative Republicans “are beginning to really worry that they’re going to be associated with that.” Gore also called out the Trump administration for not endorsing a scientific report on the options governments have to prevent climate change.
