As Trump Withdraws from The Paris Agreement,Al Gore Just Became the Biggest Movie Star of the Summer

"An Inconvenient Sequel" casts Gore as the hero we need now.

There were a lot of big movie stars making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival, but none loomed larger than Al Gore. Attending a posh dinner for the festival’s 70th anniversary, he hobnobbed with a crowd of A-listers while receiving well-wishes from distributors and filmmakers alike. “The Beguiled” director Sofia Coppola paid her respects, as did Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker and Los Angeles Times critic Justin Chang.

And so did I. Everyone in the room felt compelled to approach Gore, thank him for his continuing efforts to save the planet, and wish him good luck on the road ahead — which has only gotten rockier with the news that President Donald Trump decided to pull out of the Paris Accord. Back then, just a few weeks ago, he was the loftiest figure in a very flashy room; now, he looms even larger.

1. We live in a country that elected Trump, robbed Gore of an election he won...

and victim blames Gore for the campaign he ran.

It boggles the mind.

2. Neither of those things would've happened without the Electoral College.

 

It's long past time to get rid of it.

3. At the very least, it needs some modification.

It has let us down significantly in the past few election cycles.
