Climate change has sent an emissary to the 2017 People's Climate March on Washington: a freakish, one-day heat wave.The temperature is 91 degrees as we march, 200,000 of us, sweating profusely but wary of hydrating too fully (because where would 200,000 people pee?"But then, after 40 years of marriage, the Gore's pulled the rug out from under us all by announcing their separation.They didn't divulge much, saying only that the separation was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision." Al And Tipper Gore Are Separating Well, like the rest of the country, the lack of information has driven us to speculation.He served as Vice President during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 2001. Gore is the founder and current chair of the Alliance for Climate Protection, the co-founder and chair of Generation Investment Management and the now-defunct Current TV network, a member of the Board of Directors of Apple Inc., and a senior adviser to Google.In the 2000 presidential election, in what was one of the closest presidential races in history, Gore won the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College to Republican George W. A controversial election dispute over a vote recount in Florida was settled by the U. Gore has received a number of awards including the Nobel Peace Prize (joint award with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2007), a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album (2009) for his book An Inconvenient Truth, a Primetime Emmy Award for Current TV (2007), and a Webby Award (2005).At the end of Clinton's second term, Gore was selected as the Democratic nominee for the 2000 presidential election but did not win the election.After his term as vice-president ended in 2001, Gore remained prominent as an author and environmental activist, whose work in climate change activism earned him (jointly with the IPCC) the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. He was a Congressman from Tennessee (1977–85) and from 1985 to 1993 served as one of the state's Senators.
As much as we hope this is true, it wouldn't surprise many of us if it turns out that either of the two had strayed.So, the public has been shocked – with many still in denial – by tabloid reports of his the Gore divorce was caused by Tipper’s jealousy over other women including “an environmentalist named to a prominent cabinet position by Gore when he was vice president, a sexy Hollywood actress, a gorgeous massage therapist” and “a Tennessee Titans cheerleader.”Also, Star magazine reported that Al Gore had a two year affair with Laurie David, the ex-wife of Seinfeld creator Larry David. I adore Al and Tipper and consider them part of my family,”Laurie David responded in a written statement.Neither Al nor Tipper Gore has responded to this or any other allegation of extra marital affairs.One of his staffers, a tall guy, is standing right behind Gore, angling a protest sign over his boss's schvitzing head and neck, trying to give him some shade in the beating sun…when pushing into our midst is a little old lady from Long Island, brandishing her i Phone."You're in my way," she jabs at the young man.Then, to me: "Al Gore should have been the president, you know.""I'm trying to shade him from the sun, ma'am," the staffer says.
