Al Gore and Lisa Jackson to Discuss 'Climate Optimism' at Apple Store in San Francisco This Week

Apple has announced that former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Apple's environmental chief Lisa Jackson will be hosting a "climate optimism" discussion at its Union Square retail store in San Francisco on Wednesday.


The duo will also share their insight on Earth Day initiatives, Apple's ongoing commitment to the environment, and ways that people can have an impact on climate and the environment through positive actions.

The free event begins on April 19 at 7:00 p.m. local time. Apple is accepting a limited number of reservations on its website.

(Thanks, Ryker!)

What, like Ivanka did and got the flight delayed?

Ivanka isn't running around shoving Climate change garbage down people throats though like Al and his buddies. They can fly commercial. Drive electric cars. Not live in giant mansions that suck up more power then entire neighborhoods. Stuff like that. As soon as the climate change profiteers hand over their "stuff" I'll play the game too. Until then....get off my back and suck it. I'm not buying into the BS. Sorry.

He could fly commercial instead of in a private jet.

Al's found a hobby that nets him plenty of money and he feels like he's doing his part to "save the planet" on top of that. Good for him. Note that this article is from 2012. God knows how much money his "green" investments have made him since then: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/decision2012/al-gore-has-thrived-as-green-tech-investor/2012/10/10/1dfaa5b0-0b11-11e2-bd1a-b868e65d57eb_story.html?utm_term=.de958e7ab817

Note that I, personally, have no problem with him making wise financial investments and profiting handsomely from them. I'm all for capitalism. I am suggesting, however, that he might not be such a vocal proponent of the green agenda if he wasn't simultaneously making money off said agenda.

Prius? Or is the planet not worth leaving a couple days early to lower his carbon footprint?

Is the planet worth a delayed flight or not?

It’s too bad Lisa Jackson (’s Eco VP) can’t get Apple to make repairable computers to help reduce the e-waste of Mac users.


They wait so long to rev their macs these days that they decompose before you have to worry about e-waste.
