“The climate deniers are, in a way, like all those nearly 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the kids were being slaughtered,” Gore told NBC’s Meet the Press. “They heard the screams, they heard the shots and no one stepped forward.”

“And God bless those families who have suffered so much. And law enforcement officers tell us that this is not typical of what law enforcement officers usually do. And faced with this global emergency, what we do with our passivity and failure to open the door and kill it to stop is not typical of what we as humans are capable of. We have the solutions,” Gore added.

“Public sentiment is changing, but our democracy is broken and to solve the climate crisis we will have to pay attention to the democracy crisis,” he said.

“I welcome (Biden)’s announcement this week to jump-start the US offshore wind industry,” the former vice president said, adding that Biden has taken other small steps to mitigate some damage to climate change efforts. fighting the Trump administration. “But he needs action from Congress to take the bold steps that are really needed.”

In a separate interview on Sunday, Gore outlined more specific action he thinks the executive could take without waiting for Congress, saying the Environmental Protection Agency could take further action that Biden could stop approving of more drilling on public land and that he could nominate a new head of the World Bank.

As to whether Biden should heed the suggestions of climate activists urging him to declare a national climate emergency, Gore told ABC’s “This Week”: “Well, Mother Nature has already declared it a global emergency and I leave it to others to dissect the pros and cons of what an emergency declaration would lead to.”

He also said on Sunday that he would like to see more politicians put climate change at the heart of their campaign platforms.

“Thank you for making the suggestion,” he told NBC’s Chuck Todd when asked if he would consider running for president on a climate agenda. “But, you know, I’m a recovering politician and the longer I go without a relapse, the less likely I am to have a relapse.”
