The first less is this: take it from me, every vote counts.
Al Gore

As president, I will bring all the parties and stakeholders together. I am going to come up with a solution that respects the environment and does not cause an upheaval in the economy.
Al Gore

If you want your energy bills to go up, you should support an ever greater dependence on foreign oil, because the rate of new discoveries is declining as demand in China and India is growing, and the price of oil and thus the price of coal will go sky high.
Al Gore

I have always been fascinated with those who try to look over the horizon and see things that are coming at us.
Al Gore

When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler.
Al Gore

CO2 is the exhaling breath of our civilization, literally… Changing that pattern requires a scope, a scale, a speed of change that is beyond what we have done in the past.
Al Gore

I think that more diversity is a good thing, and fresh points of view articulated by people who are committed to excellence in journalism is a beneficial change in the American media landscape.
Al Gore

Civil disobedience has an honourable history, and when the urgency and moral clarity cross a certain threshold, then I think that civil disobedience is quite understandable, and it has a role to play.
Al Gore

There is the natural tendency that all of us are vulnerable to, to deny unpleasant realities and to look for any excuse to push them away and resolve to think about them another day long in the future.
Al Gore

I think the cost of energy will come down when we make this transition to renewable energy.
Al Gore

In digital era, privacy must be a priority. Is it just me, or is secret blanket surveillance obscenely outrageous?
Al Gore

No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.
Al Gore

As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable. In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you and climate change is one of those exceptions.
Al Gore

I’m naturally an optimist, but my basis for hope is rooted in my understanding of human nature.
Al Gore

I do genuinely believe that the political system is not linear. When it reaches a tipping point fashioned by a critical mass of opinion, the slow pace of change we’re used to will no longer be the norm. I see a lot of signs every day that we’re moving closer and closer to that tipping point.
Al Gore

I did very extensive diligence on Al Jazeera English, the network from which Al Jazeera America is going to be derived, and it’s really very clear that they have long since established a reputation for excellence and integrity and objectivity.
Al Gore

I take no pleasure in the fact that the scientific predictions I’ve relayed to popular audiences turn out to be true.
Al Gore

We’re all capable of mistakes, but I do not care to enlighten you on the mistakes we may or may not have made.
Al Gore

A zebra does not change its spots.
Al Gore

Today we’re dumping 70 million tons of global-warming pollution into the environment, and tomorrow we will dump more, and there is no effective worldwide response. Until we start sharply reducing global-warming pollution, I will feel that I have failed.
Al Gore

Population growth is straining the Earth’s resources to the breaking point, and educating girls is the single most important factor in stabilizing that. That, plus helping women gain political and economic power and safeguarding their reproductive rights.
Al Gore

I’ve learned the importance of changing people’s minds at the grassroots level so that whoever does run will have a much better chance of encountering public opinion that reaches a critical mass and brings about a change not only in White House policies but in the Congress and in the state legislatures and all around the world.
Al Gore

Airplane travel is nature’s way of making you look like your passport photo.
Al Gore

The entire North Polar ice cap is disappearing before our very eyes. It’s been the size of the continental United States for the last 3 million years and now 40 percent is gone and the rest of it is going.
Al Gore

The Bush administration works closely with a network of rapid response digital brownshirts who work to pressure reporters and their editors for ‘undermining support for our troops.’
Al Gore

I pledge to you today that as president, in my first budget, I will introduce the largest increase in special education ever.
Al Gore
