Former Vice President Al Gore, during a luncheon today on protecting the earth from climate change, was passionate and serious.
He was also funny.
Since I am science-challenged, you can read the serious stuff elsewhere.
But here are a few of his good one-liners:
“I’m Al Gore. I used to be the next president of the United States.”
“I’m a recovering politician now, on about step nine.”
“I don’t get into that (the age of the earth); we had a trial in my home state.”
For the history-challenged, he was referring to the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial in Dayton, Tenn.
