Gore at Harvard

Former US Vice President Al Gore wasn't quite ready to give up telling inconvenient truths as he discussed his latest book Our Choice: A plan to solve the global climate crisis at Harvard this weekend.

Gore took the stage to a standing ovation before a capacity crowd at the First Parrish Church Meetinghouse in Harvard Square on 7 November to discuss his compilation of "all of the most effective solutions that are available now and that together will solve this crisis".

His talk, however, was a real letdown.  Instead of laying out a blueprint for change, he droned on for close to an hour and a half reciting his tired inconvenient truths of climate change and the challenges of tackling political inertia.
