bonn - Former US Vice President Al Gore emphasized at the Bonn summit on climate change that many of his countrymen will continue to work for the climate. 'We will do that,' said the 69-year-old Nobel Prize winner Friday evening in the German pavilion. 'I'm optimistic.'
The truth will eventually prevail, he said. 'That has always been the case in history. 'All major reform movements were faced with enormous resistance. 'But if it were impossible to ignore the truth anymore, we did the good,' said Gore. This point has also been reached in the debate on climate change.
The climate conference is the sign of US activists in the field of climate change this weekend. Among the prominent speakers, next to Gore, are the former Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, Governor of California Jerry Brown and his predecessor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
