Nobel Prize winner and 45th vice president of the United States, Al Gore will lecture in Sacramento this month. Sacramento Speakers Series continues its 2013-14 season with a man widely recognized as a political, business and environmental visionary.

Gore will speak at Sacramento Community Center Theater on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. Presented as one of six speakers in the annual series, series tickets may be purchased at sacramentospeakers.com. This lecture is sponsored by the Law Offices of Mitchell Ostwald.

Vice President Gore spends most of his time chairing The Climate Reality Project, a non-profit focused on solutions to the climate crisis. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976, 1978, 1980 and 1982 and the U.S. Senate in 1984 and 1990. He was inaugurated as the 45th vice president of the United States on Jan. 20, 1993, and served eight years with President Bill Clinton.

A leader in global politics, technology and business, Gore is a member of the Board of Directors of Apple; as Chairman of Generation Investment Management, an asset-management company, and as a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Silicon Valley’s preeminent venture capital firm.

Gore is the author of the bestsellers “Earth in the Balance,” “An Inconvenient Truth” and “The Assault on Reason and Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis.” His newest book, “The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change,” is a frank and clear-eyed assessment of six critical drivers of global change in the decades to come. He is the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary and is the co-recipient, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for “informing the world of the dangers posed by climate change.”

Following Vice President Gore, Sacramento Speakers Series will present Admiral Michael Mullen on Jan. 7, 2014, physician and author Dr. Andrew Weil on Jan. 21, 2014, crisis management expert Judy Smith on Feb. 18, 2014 and host of the Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa program Ina Garten on April 1, 2014. Steve Wozniak launched the series on Oct. 1.

Now in its ninth season, Sacramento Speakers Series offers an impressive list of political leaders, authors, scientists and visionaries, each chosen on the basis of career achievements, unique expertise in a particular field of endeavor and ability to communicate their particular passion to the audience. The Sacramento Speakers Series is a community lecture series that provides an open forum for a free discussion of timely and important issues by nationally acclaimed speakers. Managing principal and attorney Mitchell Ostwald describes the series as “an extraordinary community experience that gives our patrons an opportunity to hear about and question renowned and influential people from a wide variety of backgrounds on an even wider variety of topics.”

    Evelyn, not to worry. Even I find Al boring, but he would have made a great non-war president in 2000. However, he couldn't even win his home state so ----------.

    algore is a pure profiteer, of the worst kind. He is hypocrisy on steroids. His success, all by itself is evidence of the pollutants people consume. It takes a lot of mentally unbalanced people to make someone like algore rich. If you go there don't drink the koolaid. If he himself believed the dung he was peddling he would be living in a yurt.

    I have done some extra curricular reading on the walking chakra over the years. He is reported by many to be one of the meanest, most self-centered, arrogant sob's on planet earth. And not very bright. He is a lot like obama, thin skinned, vindictive, petulant, vacuous, shallow, in need of constant adoration and stimulation of his ego, and generally lacking any salt. Lots of fabricated symbolism and virtually no substance. He is motivated by the same sophomoric personality traits as most on the left who rob, steal and cheat their way into power and influence, greed, jealousy, the need for attention and an effervescing rage.

    algore is a total moron. The notion that anyone takes him seriously is what Thomas Jefferson meant when he said, "An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people." -- Thomas Jefferson

    Why did the MD published this article? They rarely talk about news that's outside the boundaries of this county....was it perhaps to get everybody all worked up just for sport?
