article imageAl Gore in Manila on climate change talks

By Leo Reyes     Jun 8, 2010 in Environment
Former US vice-president Al Gore arrived Tuesday in Manila to deliver a talk on climate change at the SMX convention center Tuesday night.
Gore arrived at the NAIA Terminal 1 at around 11 a.m. on board a Korean Air flight KE 621 from Seoul. He is scheduled to meet President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo before his lecture.
ABS-CBN News reports:
A statement from SM Prime Holdings said Gore will present an Asian version of his landmark multimedia presentation "An Inconvenient Truth" at the leadership conference scheduled on June 8, 2010, instead of April 30.
Gore's presentation on the threat of climate change and solutions to global warming became the subject of the movie of the same title, which won an Academy Award.
Henry Sy, owner of SM Holdings said Gore's visit is part of the SM Group's commitment to environmental preservation.
Gore, who made headlines last week with news announcement that he and wife were separating after four decades of marriage, is a recipient of a Nobel Peace prize for his efforts in raising awareness on climate change across the globe.
