He's not a perfect spokesman for the issue simply because he's a politician. And a D, which automatically earns the rejection of half the country who is skeptical of science in the first place.

But on the other hand, without his position, the issue may never have been talked about at all.
He's clearly not just saying what the experts are telling him. At all. Because he's making grossly incorrect statements. His history of bullshit has done more to damage the climate change initiative than just about anything else. Without Gore spewing BS, it would actually be easier to educate people that don't understand the science behind climate change.

To those attending the Folk Alliance International conference, he noted examples of flooding in locations both remote and closer to home, such as in Manitou Springs, Colo., where high water barreled down mountain highways last year, carrying cars along with it.

“They had never seen anything like this in Manitou Springs,” Gore said.

“Think about that,” he said. “The Dust Bowl is coming back, quickly, unless we act.”
Completely wrong fear mongering BS.

“Do we really have to do this and — if the answer is yes — can we do it?” Gore said, repeating two questions he routinely hears.

“The answer to both of those questions — spoiler alert — is ‘yes.’ ”
No, the answer is we think we might have to act eventually, but we're not yet convinced. And if we do have to act, we're not currently sure how to go about that or even if it would work.

Gore cited what he considered the increasing momentum with which renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power have been embraced.
Embraced by those who benefit from selling energy.

Among the countries or states turning to renewable energy strategies, Gore mentioned the Vatican’s increasing use of solar technology. Vatican City, Gore said, wants to be the first CO2-neutral sovereign city-state in the world.

“They have two advantages,” Gore said. “It is very small, and they have God on their side.”
