Greens Pan 'Gore-a-thon': 'Climate Change needs a Gandhi,' Not A Gore

Former Vice President Al Gore’s 24 hour climate “reality” show is surprisingly facing strongly negative reviews from Gore's fellow global warming activists and environmental allies.

The International Institute for Environment and Development’s Mike Shanahan, for example, bragged that he purposefully avoided watching Gore's climate telethon. “I actually avoided the Goreathon, and I guess that says something in itself,” Shanahan wrote.

He added that a journalist sent him a text declaring: “Gore gets gold for most boring and least galvanizing talk on climate, ever...That, and possibly damaging.” 

Shanahan was blunt in his opinion of Gore: “Climate Change needs a Gandhi or a Martin Luther King or a Mandela, and Al Gore is none of those.”

Other global warming activists were just as wary of having anything to do with Gore's attempt to link al bad weather to man-made global warming.
