Just yesterday, July 1st, Al Gore authored an opinion editorial which was published in the New York Times. I have copied a few choice portions from the editorial, and will have a few comments after the break, if you care to read them. All of the following are quotes attributed to Gore from his editorial:
There has been speculation in the last few days that President Bush would, in his State of the Union speech, announce a historic shift in the U.S. climate change policy. It seems that this is not the case. This topic will certainly not help any of the feelings of Tony Blair or Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany, who both would like the U.S. to change its policy.
