Al Gore: Obama Allowing Arctic Drilling ‘Insane’

Thursday, in an interview with “The Guardian,” former Vice President Al Gore said President Barack Obama’s decision to allow Royal Dutch Shell to begin the drilling process in the Arctic is “insane.”

When asked about Obama’s job performance on climate change issues Gore said, “I think that in his second term, he has done really quite a good job. Of course there are things I would change. I think Arctic drilling is insane. The Deepwater Horizon spill was warning enough. The conditions are so hostile to human activity there. I think it’s a mistake to drill for oil in the Arctic. I think that ought to be banned.”
