MELBOURNE, Australia — Former Vice President Al Gore was confronted by climate skeptic Marc Morano at the EcoCity World Summit in Melbourne Australia on July 13th. Morano presented a DVD copy of his film ‘Climate Hustle’. During the inconvenient encounter, Gore refused to accept the DVD of the film and walked on by to his waiting Lexus RX450h SUV “hybrid.”

Transcript of Gore’s Inconvenient Encounter With Marc Morano
Morano: “Hi Mr. Gore.”
Morano: “Marc Morano, I used to work for Senator James Inhofe.” (Gore shakes hands with Morano)
Gore: “Oh, nice to see you. Yeah. Thank you.”
Morano, holding up DVD: “It’s actually my film, Climate Hustle. Would you take a copy of it, please? No? Thank you.”
Gore walks on by and outside to his waiting Lexus SUV.
Security: “Can I ask how you got access to this area?”
This was not the first time Morano and Gore met. They first met in 1992 while Morano was on assignment for Rush Limbaugh, The Television Show. And again in 2007. See: Climate Clash: Gore Rebuffs Morano 37000 feet over South China Sea in 2007 – ‘You all attack me all the time’
The Climate Hustle film will also be shown in Brisbane and Sydney later this week and next week.

Morano: “We are taking a quick hop to Australia to help export the awesomeness of what is currently happening in the U.S. when it comes to climate policy.”
Gore’s new sequel film premiered to bad reviews in January 2017 when it opened on the film festival circuit.
Sampling of Reviews Al Gore’s new sequel:
‘Superhero tragedy disguised as end-times environmental doc’ – Gore ‘sequel is a superhero movie about a sad Al Gore’ – ‘The film doesn’t have an official rating, but I would suggest PG for dad jokes, dated political humor, and PowerPoint slides that belong in a junior-high science class.’
But prominent scientists are on record in Climate Hustle panning Gore’s first film ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’
