one who stands out as much as former vice-president Al Gore. He is an inspiration to me
and many other people that are interested in conserving the planet for the next
Albert Arnold Gore Jr. was born on March 31, 1948 in Washington D.C. His
parents are U.S. representative Albert Gore Sr. and Tennessee senator Pauline LaFon
Gore. Al Gore attended St. Albans School from 1956 to 1965 and then he was later
enrolled in Harvard University in 1965. He graduated from Harvard with a Bachelor of
Arts degree in government after realizing that an English major was not for him.
|The Gore Family|
being sent to Vietnam on January 2, 1971, Al Gore married Mary Elizabeth Aitcheson (known as Tipper) on May 19, 1970. The marriage took place at the Washington National
Cathedral. During his time in Vietnam, he was stationed with the 20th Engineer Brigade in
Bien Hoa as a journalist for the paper called the Castle Courier. Gore later had four
children; Karenna Aitcheson Gore, Kristin Carlson Gore, Sarah LaFon Gore, and Albert
Gore the Third.
|Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize|
Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his film on global warming which
was also an Academy Award Winner for Best Documentary in 2007. A Grammy Award
for Best Spoken Word Album was given to Gore for his book “An Inconvenient Truth:
The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It” this year.
He is a man that travels all around the country instructing others on the threats that can
emerge from global warming and his attitude towards the subject is why I admire him.
