Gore says campaigning for climate, not presidency

Good for Al!

He most likely can serve his country better at this critical point in our history if he remains out of Washington, D.C., talking about what he knows better than anyone, outside of science.

If the next Democratic president has any sense, he/she will make good use of Al, if he is willing.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Al Gore insists he's campaigning for the environment these days, not for president.

The former U.S. vice president, whose documentary film 'An Inconvenient Truth' about global warming won two Academy Awards this year, faces persistent speculation that he might make a run for the White House in the November 2008 election.

'I'm not planning to be a candidate again for office,' Gore told Reuters on Thursday, repeating a now familiar denial at the launch of a 'call to action' for Live Earth concerts around the world on July 7 to focus attention on climate change.

'I'm involved in a different kind of campaign to spread awareness of the climate crisis and the way to solve the climate crisis,' he said.
