Trump Doesn't Speak For America On Climate Change, Says Al Gore
10 August 2017, 09:51
Al Gore said Donald Trump's position against climate change is at odds with everyone else in the USA.
The former Vice-President was talking to James O'Brien about his new film An Inconvenient Sequel, in which he follows up the idea he discussed in An Inconvenient Truth.
And he said President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Change Agreement does not worry him.
Mr Gore said: "The US cannot legally leave until the day after the next Presidential election in 2020.
"But more importantly, the day after Trump made that speech, the entire rest of the world redoubled its commitment to the agreement
"And in the US, large states like California, New York and many others and hundreds of cities and business leaders said no we're still in the Paris Agreement and we're going to meet the commitments the US made regardless of what Donald Trump says or tweets."
