The Guardian has the story on its web site – see link above

Quote from the article ‘With the sequel to his blockbuster documentary An Inconvenient Truth about to be released, Al Gore tells Carole Cadwalladr how his role at the forefront of the fight against climate change consumes his life.’

I have long held the view that global warming is the greatest threat to the human race but it is often one that takes a political back seat in favour of less important but allegedly more immediate concerns. Just think how much you heard about it in the recent General Election – very little I would guess.

Yet ignoring it and denying it condemns future generations to a potentially hellish existence. That great mind Professor Steven Hawking predicted only recently that we will in effect destroy our home world and will have to find another one to ransack.

Anyone who is a climate change denier, in my view, is a threat to our future – end of.
