Gore to give free talk on climate change, energy and water issues at UH-Manoa

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:27 a.m. HST, Jan 24, 2014

Former Vice President Al Gore will visit Oahu in April to give a free public lecture on climate change as well as energy and water matters, University of Hawaii officials and Sen. Brian Schatz' office announced Thursday.

Gore, a longtime advocate for more robust environmental protections, will speak as part of a UH series of seminars on sustainability. It will take place 7 p.m. April 15 at UH Manoa's Stan Sheriff Center, which can accommodate about 10,000 people.

"I am continually impressed by Hawaii's innovative thinking, from clean energy to water to transit," Gore said in a statement released by the UH Sea Grant college program. That program organizes the Stephen and Marylyn Pauley Seminar in Sustainability series, which draws speakers such as Gore on academic, social and cultural issues.

Man made global climate change is real, Al Jazeera Gore Is the fake. He does more harm to honestly address the issue which is for the US to become completely energy independent form Middle Eastern and Asian fossil by INCREASING extraction of US fossil fuel resources and fully exploit residential and commercial PV and SAFE nuclear power sources. Then the US can wean itself from using its own fossil fuel resources and let the middle Eastern oil producing countries, including Iran revert back to what it once was extremist countries with minimal wealth and subsequent local and not global reach and influence. By the time that happens, the effects of global climate chang will diminish. The key is not increased heat but energy, where heat is only one form of energy that the earths ecosystem has to compensate within a closed environment. 50 ft N shore waves and accompanying 50 mph wind gusts is one way mother nature likes to express additional energy in its environment ot a polar vortex smashing the mainland US
