Black Activists Criticize Gore for Comparing Climate Change Advocacy to Fight Against Slavery

Al Gore was in Australia Thursday promoting his new video, “An Inconvenient Sequel,” the follow-up to Gore’s 2006 “An Inconvenient Truth.” While speaking to attendees of the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne, the former vice president compared climate change advocates to those who worked to end slavery, promote civil rights and women’s suffrage, battled apartheid in South Africa, and worked for gay rights. He said those activists had also experienced “ferocious resistance” to their cause.

Does he realize he’s talking about Republicans?
