Criticism update[edit]

Criticism needs update re. Sale to oil emirate by former U.S. vice president and Current TV founder Al Gore. Gore reportedly making an estimated $70 million for his 20 percent stake selling his progressive cable network to Al Jazeera. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jbgfour (talkcontribs) 01:28, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

environmentalism[edit]

the environmentalism section says he began speaking on the topic of global warming in 1976, and continued to "through the 1980s." he is still active in the topic of global warming, so shouldn't it say that he continued to speak about it through the 2000s? it's possible i'm misunderstanding something. if no one has any objections, i will make that change. let me know please.

gay rights[edit]

gore voiced his position against gay marriage in the 1980s, but in 2008 he showed his support of gay marriage. the article only contained the information of him speaking against it, so i added a sentence explaining his opinion change. i think its important to have this information, especially based on the fact this is a biography of a living person. let me know if you have any questions.
