Al Gore has a major campaign under way — to change policies on global warming.
The 2000 Democratic presidential nominee has hired longtime political associate Roy Neel to aid in his effort to raise awareness about global warming, a problem Gore calls “a planetary emergency.”
Gore’s movie and book about the issue, both called “An Inconvenient Truth,” are set for widespread release in May.
“He’s taking an increasingly high-profile role in working on the climate change issue,” Gore spokesman Michael Feldman said.
Gore repeatedly has brushed aside talk of another presidential bid, telling a Tennessee audience last month, “I’m not planning to be a candidate again. I haven’t reached a stage in my life where I’m willing to say I will never consider something like this.”
