Gore says ‘scientists have warned us’ about climate

GLASGOW, Scotland – Former US Vice President Al Gore likened the world’s complacent attitude to climate change to how he did not take seriously the threat of fascism in the 1930s.

Citing Winston Churchill’s famous warning that “the era of procrastination (…) is coming to an end,” Gore told the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow that the effects of global warming would soon spur action.

“We are now experiencing the effects of the climate crisis in all parts of the world,” he said Friday, echoing Churchill. “Scientists have warned us that these consequences are coming.”

Gore starred in An Inconvenient Truth, a 2006 Oscar-winning documentary about the threat of climate change.

In Glasgow, he praised countries and companies that have recently made new commitments to reduce emissions, but added that these commitments need to be closely monitored.

Gore advocated “radical transparency,” which includes monitoring emissions from land, sea, air, and satellites to identify those responsible for greenhouse gas emissions.

He also warned that the expected rise in climate refugees in the coming decades could spark “xenophobia and anger,” which in turn could fuel authoritarian populism around the world.
