    •  4 years will be 2016 (0+ / 0-)

      Peak emissions has to come in 2020 then steep decline in order to avoid greater than 2c warming (and very bad things). Gore must run in 2016 to force this issue if action is not taken to achieve this essential task. It will be the culmination of his life of public service and it the moral obligation dealt to him with his station and status. Even if he doesn't win the nomination he must run and use the stage of the debates to communicate the severity of the issue and the necessity of action. The work he is doing is wonderful, but I think he must re-enter the political arena despite the personal sacrifices that demands.

      Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.
