Flying isn’t one of Al Gore’s favourite things to do – is it?
Al Gore wings it to Chicago to speak with Barack Obama. What that conversation will be about is quite obvious – but will it mean that Gore will return to government?
That’s a strong possibility – after all, Gore said he would never return. That isn’t always the end game in politics and it could well mean that Gore is put in charge on the environment. Well the American policy on the environment. Will this be his perfect job? That, again, could be – he is passionate about climate change and getting US policy right.
Gore’s high profile visit to Chicago, Illinois, to meet Obama and Biden is raising eyebrows, even among some of Gore’s close advisers.
“The Gore trip is for more than just a chat,” a close friend of Gore told CNN’s John King. “He wouldn’t burn that much carbon flying to Chicago just to talk.”
Why couldn’t he drive? And a hybrid at that?
