Al Gore pushed climate change at the World Economic Forum in Davos, subverting President Trump’s agenda.
It is unknown, but presumed, that Gore flew private to attend the conference.
The global economy was not the only topic on the agenda at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week. During a breakout session on Thursday, former vice president and climate change zealot Al Gore spoke on a panel entitled “Stepping Up Climate Action.”
“The survival of our civilization is at stake here, and people are becoming aware of it, and the change is beginning to accelerate, but we have to translate that into political change,” Gore said.
Gore began his remarks by saying that despite President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord, leaders across the country were committed to it.
Not to be too U.S.-centric, but, you know, our president is going to speak here tomorrow, and I have no comment on that, but I will say this: several governors of our largest states, hundreds of cities, and thousands of U.S. businesses are now ensuring that the U.S. will not only meet, but exceed the commitments it made under the Paris agreement.
He praised the only governor among them to attend the forum, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who is trying to impose a carbon tax on the state.
