On Wednesday, August 22, former Vice President Al Gore gave an updated version of his An Inconvenient Truth slideshow presentation to more than 1,000 environmental activists in San Francisco.
The Nobel Laureate’s roughly 60-minute presentation was part of a three-day Climate Reality Leadership training conference organized by The Climate Reality Project.
Prior to the event, TakePart sat down with the chairman of the Climate Reality Project for a wide-ranging interview on climate change, which included his thoughts on the recent heatwaves and drought, President Obama’s green record, and what it would mean for environmental policy in the United States if Republican Mitt Romney were elected President in November.
