Gore’s tough message to leaders

Al Gore was optimistic about some developing countries’ plans
Leaders will have to embrace tougher targets on reducing emissions if they want to prevent dangerous climate change, according to Al Gore.
Speaking here at the UN climate conference, the former US presidential candidate said the “sclerotic” politics of today had to change.
His speech was met with rapturous applause by thousands of delegates.
But environmental groups here criticised the EU’s climate and energy package, agreed earlier in Brussels.
EU leadership is widely seen as vital in clinching a global deal at the next UN conference in Copenhagen in a year’s time; and campaigners say European governments have concluded a weak agreement.
But Mr Gore, who won last year’s Nobel Peace Prize for his work on climate change, said he saw more reasons for optimism than pessimism.
“To those who say it’s too difficult to conclude a deal by Copenhagen, I say it can be done, it will be done, let’s finish this process.”

Why would anyone listen to this lying, manipulating, dishonest, mouthpiece for the UN New World Order. He and his mentor Maurice Strong along with a cabal of elitists and phony environmental groups intend to destroy our economies in order to gain complete control of the planet and everything on it.
What’s going on in the economy is not by chance or some unforeseen accident.
