Al Gore on 60 Minutes


Al Gore is turning 60 by making yet another media splash for his war against global warming. He's investing some of his burgeoning personal fortune in a $300 million ad campaign from the agency that gave us the talking Geico lizard. Gore also tells 60 Minutes' Leslie Stahl that not believing in man-made global warming is like not believing in the moon landing.
"Well, there's pretty impressive people like the vice president," Stahl pointed out. "He said, 'We don't know what causes it.' " "You’re talking about Dick Cheney," Gore replied. "Yeah, but others. And they say: We don’t know what causes it and why spend all this money till we really know," Stahl said. "I think that those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now with their point of view. They’re almost like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the earth is flat. That demeans them a little bit, but it’s not that far off," Gore said.
