GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Former Vice President Al Gore says the Trump administration has made some dangerous changes to environmental policy, though so far it's having less of an impact than he initially feared.
In an interview Monday with The Associated Press in Greensboro, Gore cited the Paris Climate Accord as one example of the Trump administration failing to change environmental rules as quickly as it might want. While the United States withdrew from the accord, he says the first date that can become official is the day after the 2020 presidential election.
Should another president be elected, Gore says the U.S. could again be part of the accord with 30 days' notice.
Gore is in North Carolina to speak on behalf of the Poor People's Campaign, including an event Monday night in Greensboro.
