Interview with Al Gore

Interview with Al Gore

In the race to fixing our planet, there are many key players. However, nobody is more central to this issue than former US Vice President, Al Gore.

After being the Vice President under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001, and losing his fight to become the President of the United States in 2000 (in a very tight, and controversial fight), he became a full time climate change activist – winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.

However, perhaps his most notable work is the 2006 documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, the Academy Award-winning documentary educating the public about climate change – and giving some very worrying scientific predictions about the direction of the planet.

Now, over a decade later and after having brought almost every country together to achieve the Paris Agreement, Al Gore returns with the follow-up: An Inconvenient Sequel – Truth To Power. The film addresses the progress made to tackle what Mr. Gore refers to as the ‘climate crisis’ and Gore’s global efforts to persuade leaders to invest in renewable energy.

Benji Hyer interviewed former US Vice President Al Gore for the W!ZARD Studios documentary ‘The Mission – Fighting Everyday, To Ensure Another One’ about global warming, Donald Trump and more.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Benji Hyer on Charlottesville

Charlottesville, Virginia.

Protests have turned ugly, even deadly. Despite Trump’s insistent that violence was committed from both camps; the truth was that the events of this weekend were not the fault of “many sides”, but of racists and white supremacists.

It is time for President Trump to recognise the violence, and condemn the blatant white supremacy which is still rife in the United States.

Benji Hyer did not discuss the events of Charlottesville, Virginia on his show this past Sunday – instead, here is a bonus clip with of him discussing it online.

Hyer's Highlights: North Korea and Trump

In the last week, we have seen a war of words between Donald Trump and North Korea.

On Tuesday, he told reporters that “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States” or else “they will be met with fire, fury and power like the world has never seen”: In response, North Korean state-run media reported that the country was “carefully examining” a plan to strike US Pacific territory of Guam with missiles.

The following day, Mr Trump boasted that the US nuclear arsenal is “more powerful than ever”.

As China encouraged restraint, Trump openly declared on Thursday that his “fire and fury” warning maybe “wasn’t tough enough”. Asked what would be tougher than fire and fury, he simply replied: “you’ll see”.

On Friday, he tweeted that military solutions are “locked and loaded” should NK “act unwisely”, and added that NK it should be “very, very nervous” if it does anything to the US.

The question arises as to how the United States should proceed. Listener Harry suggests that Kim Jong-Un doesn't care about his citizens; all he cares about is his own power.
