All Gore on CNN "American Morning": global warming is real, and it is manmade; look at the glaciers
Al Gore spoke to CNN “American Morning” on Wednesday December 9. That the climate is changing at an accelerating rate (using acceleration and derivative as a calculus concept) in inconvertible, given that the North Polar Ice Cap has suddenly lost 40% of its mass and that high mountain glaciers as in Peru and Africa (over 18000 feet) are disappearing. “Republican” detractors from the global warming debate simply are pulling “observations” out of context.
Gore is mixed on nuclear power, saying that the cost has brought it to a standstill in the US, but it is effective overseas (look at France), even though it makes nuclear materials potentially availbale to the wrong hands.
