OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:
Gore knocks Obama on climate change inaction (CBS News, 12/06/12)
Posted by Orrin Judd at December 6, 2012 6:34 PMIn a speech before the New York League of Conservation Voters on Thursday, former Vice President Al Gore criticized Obama's lack of concerted action to address climate change, saying that while he deeply respects "our president and the steps he has taken," it's time to move beyond lip service."We cannot have four more years of mentioning this occasionally and saying it's too bad that the Congress can't act," said Gore, according to Reuters, arguing that the White House must act more aggressively to dispel the inertia that has gripped Capitol Hill's response to climate change.
