Former US Vice-President Al Gore to visit Gibraltar

Al Gore

FORMER US Presidential candidate Al Gore is to visit Gibraltar as part of the Rock’s efforts to become ‘a major environmental hub’.

Gore – who also served as Vice-President under Bill Clinton – will deliver a speech on economic strategy at a major environmental forum to be held on October 21.

Joining him will be Juan Verde, the international co-director of Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, who will discuss how Obama’s renewable energy policies affect Europe.

Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth shocked audiences worldwide into taking the issue of global warming seriously.

  1. Just shows you some fools will do anything to make a buck$. Facts proved him a poor VP under Clinton, vigorously voiced the factually wrong “Global Warming” myth (while living in his massive Georgia house with about $2000 in Utility bills per month/2 people!) and now goes to Gib to “expound”. The only thing that will “expound” will be the increase in Methane Gas while he’s there… “expounding”. I imagine if Gore and Koffi Annan ever “expounded” at the same forum… the Earth would explode from excessive Methane Gas.

  2. “Expounding” in Gibralter…. with it’s VERY limited population, cow/sheep herds and CO2 traffic/industrial missions – why doesn’t Al Gore “expound” in China… or India, or other countries with industrial/traffic pollutants or BIG sheep & cow herds… etc for their agreement to reduce pollutants?!
    Sheep and cows give GOOD Methane… more than a buses!
    Maybe the Speaker’s Fees were substantial.

  3. Think of the future, soon there will be a war between Israel and Iran . America will need to refuel its ships somewhere and who controls Gibraltar controls who enters the Mediterranean sea.
