The 2016 election might do some long-term good for climate change awareness — or so, at least, hopes former Vice President and perpetual environmental mensch Al Gore.
“It’s no secret that Ivanka Trump is very committed to having a climate policy that makes sense for our country and for our world and that was certainly evident in the conversation that I had with her,” the global warming activist and “Inconvenient Truth” star told MSNBC.
Former Vice President Al Gore said he discussed climate change with Ivanka Trump Monday, in another sign that the first daughter will have an outsized role in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
Al Gore said on Tuesday that tough competition from major U.S. television networks forced him to sell Current TV, a struggling progressive cable channel, to Al Jazeera, and he praised the Arabic news broadcaster’s coverage of climate change.
With Al-Jazeera planning its entry onto American TV, Gal Beckerman asks why the backlash has been so fierce and examines the new perspective the channel will add.
Al-Jazeera has sparked a round of Jewish hand-wringing with its purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. But analysts say the Arab network might offer Americans a needed global perspective.
Jewish leaders have expressed “concern” about the impending entry of the Qatari-owned Al Jazeera network to the U..S television market, citing its record of anti-Israeli coverage and support for extremist Muslim regimes.
Al Jazeera said on Wednesday it will buy Current TV, the struggling cable channel founded by Al Gore and partners, in a move that will boost the Qatar-based broadcaster’s footprint in the United States.
Not so long ago, fracking was a technical term little known beyond the energy industry. Now it’s coming to Hollywood, as the fierce battle between environmentalists and oil firms is played out in several forthcoming films.
My mom has been a global warming true believer since I can remember. As an avid lover of winter and a careful listener of Al Gore, she thought the evidence was obvious: Our grandparents had snow from Thanksgiving to Passover while we have less and less.
