Obama's New Climate Advisor: Al Gore

Posted: Dec 07, 2009 2:10 PM
President Obama is meeting today with former Vice President and fellow Nobel Laureate Al Gore to discuss the state of "global warming."  AFP reports:
The closed-door meeting is designed to help brief Obama before he meets business and environmental leaders at the White House on Wednesday, the White House said.

Obama on Friday announced a change to his schedule and decided to visit the UN-sponsored climate talks in Copenhagen at their critical final stage on December 18, rather than this week, just after the event opens.
Gore, who has yet to comment on the ongoing Climategate scandal, will be meeting Obama two days before the president leaves for Norway to accept his peace prize.
