Al Gore on 'Inconvenient Sequel,' Trump, and the environment

Al gore on new documentaryAl Gore admits he was frustrated upon hearing the news last month that President Trump was pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, but since then he's become more optimistic.

Gore worried that a U.S. withdrawal from the treaty would compel other nations to opt out of the historical pact for adopting clean energy solutions. But that's not what happened.

"The whole rest of the world has redoubled their commitment. And in this country, the governors and the mayors and the business leaders have all said, 'We're still in the agreement, and we're gonna fill the gap. We're gonna meet the U.S. commitment, regardless of what Donald Trump does," Gore told the Associated Press last week at a special screening for "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power."

Climate Change Is Killing What’s Left of Our Beautiful Coral Reefs

Coral reefs disappearingI’ve spent much of my life in oceans. It’s what most underwater photographers do, the serious ones at least. It’s my favorite part of the job. The ocean has always felt like home to me. When I was a kid, I used to splash around at the English seaside and pretend I was Jacques Cousteau. I wanted to explore hidden places and discover fantastic new species. Submarines seemed far more magical than spaceships.

As a teenager, I started scuba diving. Now this was a real eye-opener. Suddenly, all those stunning corals and exotic fishes from my favorite books were there in front of me. I was in their world. I still remember the sensation of taking my first breath underwater. My entire body was tingling with this intense joy, an almost giddy feeling of sheer wonder -- I had found paradise.
