Al Gore whines at LA fundraiser about global warming losing attention

Former Vice President Al Gore is upset that he is global warming is losing Americans’ attention.

Is the Nobel Peace Prize winner finally discovering the real ’inconvenient truth’?

Gore decided to grace LA with his presence earlier this month to discuss the issue with Hollywood environmentalists in Beverly Hills. They gathered together at the home of Kevin Wall, the Emmy-winning producer who founded Live Earth in partnership with Gore.

According to the Hollywood Reporter75 guests came to listen to Gore preach about how the entertainment industry should be doing more for climate change.

Lawrence Bender, who has produced many of Quentin Tarantino’s hit flicks, and Leonard Nimoy, a.k.a Mr. Spock, were reportedly among the attendees.

Gore also voiced his concerns that Americans no longer view climate change a top priority at the Dec. 6 dinner for the Children’s Defense Fund.

“Do you think it still matters to people?” he lamented.

While it may not matter to the greater American public still amidst other more salient issues like the national unemployment crisis and immigration reform, it’s still at the top of Gore’s list. All of Gore’s tweets since Election Day, Nov. 6 except one ( a tweet sent Friday extending condolences to the families of the Newtown shooting victims) have been about climate change.

Given that Gore is no longer in office, why should we listen to the former Democratic presidential candidate whine on Twitter? Well, he did invent the Internet . . .

    We need to try to deal with global warming now, because the longer we leave it, the worse the effects will be and the harder it will be to bring it to a halt. We have triggered this off, but nature is still far more powerful than us, and if we wait until the positive feedbacks have really kicked off in earnest then we’ll have no realistic chance of controlling it. The worry is that it might already be too late.

    Perhaps someone should inform Al Gore that even Hollywood is onto the tactic of using performers to sell your livelihood and they’re sick of it?
