In a SPIEGEL interview, former US vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, 61, discusses Barack Obama's environmental policies, the endless push by lobbyists to derail reforms and his hopes for a global deal at the climate change summit in Copenhagen next month.
Gore is talking about a huge human transformation http://tinyurl.com/ye3h8af and is optimistic that some form of treaty will be reached in Copenhagen, even though he has not yet been told that Obama will actually be going. But he thinks he's a "nudge" and can make it happen. Who does he think he is? http://tinyurl.com/ylqoegu I pray he won't get this far.
Angela Merkel in the meantime is not so sure she wants to pledge a financial committment to the Treaty, saying she spent all their money on the bailouts etc. Once a fierce supporter of the climate change issue, she's now pulling back. She's a stubborn and smart German and will get her way. http://tinyurl.com/yz8bvn8
