It certainly wasn’t a meeting anyone expected after Donald Trump called the idea of man-made climate “a hoax” on the campaign trail. But on Monday, Trump met with former Vice President Al Gore, one of the most famous climate activists in the world.
“I had a lengthy and very productive meeting about the transition with the president-elect,” said Gore after leaving Trump Tower. “It was a sincere search for areas of common ground. I found it an extremely interesting conversation and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that.”
Trump told The New York Times after the election that there may be what he called some “connectivity” between human activity and climate change.
But Reince Preibus, who will be Trump’s chief of staff, told Fox News that Trump still thinks global warming is mainly a bunch of bunk.
Meanwhile, Trump is still searching for a possible secretary of state. On Tuesday, he will meet with the CEO of Exxon Mobil, Rex Tillerson.
He will also meet with Henry Kissinger, who worked in the Nixon and Ford administrations.
