Last Wednesday (August 22), former Vice President Al Gore presented a 60 minute updated version of his An Inconvenient Truth slideshow presentation to over 1,000 environmental activists in San Francisco.
The Nobel Laureate’s speech was part of a three-day Climate Reality Leadership training seminar organized by The Climate Reality Project.
TakePart, the company responsible for award-winning films such as “An Inconvenient Truth,” and “Contagion,” sat down with Gore for an exclusive interview on recent weather conditions, which included his views on this year’s heatwaves and drought, President Obama’s green record, and what might change for environmental policy in the United States if Republican Mitt Romney were elected President in November.
Take a look at this video clip as former Vice President discusses the extreme weather events around the world and how it is absurd to ignore the climate crisis.

I agree with the former Vice President! After this year’s sizzling hot summer and extreme weather patterns, the evidence of global warming can not be denied! It is very real and happening! What is your opinion?
