Gore Blasts Obama on Climate Change

Al Gore has really developed a taste for inconvenient truths—he’s doing what few Democrats have done and criticized President Obama’s record on climate change. In a 7,000-word essay for Rolling Stone posted online Wednesday, Gore outlines scores of Obama’s failures, from failing to defend his green stimulus package from congressional defunding, to making concessions to oil and coal companies. But the biggest problem with Obama is a much more general one, according to Gore: “President Obama has never presented to the American people the magnitude of the climate crisis.” Gore said Obama has failed to make the case for “bold action,” and it is time to do so.
