Former Vice President Al Gore has likened climate change deniers to the Uvalde cops who stood by and did nothing as a school massacre unfolded.
In a Meet The Press interview that will air on Sunday, Gore told Chuck Todd: ‘You know the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred.
Gore – worth an estimated $300 million thanks to his green investment fund Generation Investment Management – added: ‘They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots and nobody stepped forward.’
Gore, who is famed for his hardline pro-green stance, served as vice president in Bill Clinton‘s administration between 1993 and 2001.
After leaving office, he set up Generation in 2004, when many renewable energy technologies were in their infancy.
The fund has since ballooned as investment in green technology has taken off, and now holds an estimated $36 billion in assets.

Last week, body camera and surveillance footage showed that nearly 400 armed law enforcement officers laid siege to the classroom where Salvador Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in May rather than engage him.
The officers stood and waited for 77 minutes before shooting Ramos dead.
Gore went on to say: ‘God bless those families who suffered so much and law enforcement officials tell us that’s not typical of what law enforcement usually does.’
His comments come as a record heatwave struck the U.S., parts of Europe including the United Kingdom and North Africa.
The Academy Award winner went on to labor his point further saying: ‘And confronted with this global emergency, what we’re doing with our inaction and failing to walk through the door and stop the killing is not typical of what we are capable of as human beings.’
He went on: ‘We do have the solutions. And I think these extreme events that are getting steadily worse and more severe are really beginning to change minds.’
In another comparison during the same interview, Gore said that a lack of action on climate change is similar to the Democrats attempts at gun reform in the face of a rise in mass shootings across the country.
He said: ‘The same reason that it’s seemingly impossible for the Congress to pass legislation banning these weapons of war, these assault rifles that are being used to murder children in classrooms and create hundreds of mass-casualty events already this year, and that’s getting worse… is the same reason that we can’t pass climate legislation.’
Gore praised President Joe Biden’s actions on climate change saying: ‘Well, the United States must step up and provide leadership. And of course, President Biden’s been trying to do that.
The former VP continued: ‘And he has a 50-50 Senate, really a 49-51 Senate on everything related to the climate, and a razor-thin majority in the House.’
Though the failed presidential candidate did say that he did not believe that climate change should be a ‘political football.’ He said: ‘It shouldn’t be a partisan issue.’
