  • Former Vice President Al Gore delivered words of praise and criticism during a speech on Thursday.

    While speaking at an event sponsored by the League of Conservation Voters and the Regional Plan Association, Gore applauded New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his work during Hurricane Sandy.

    However, the words of praise went abbreviated as Gore chastised the federal government for their slow response to climate change.

    “What will it take for the national government to wake up as this mayor has been telling us to do?” Gore said.

    In a room of business leaders and city officials, Gore discussed efforts to rebuild communities and how to prepare better for future inclement emergencies.

    Bloomberg also took the time to explain how the city is handling the recovery process as well as planning for the future.

    “Let me be clear: we are not going to abandon the waterfront,” said Bloomberg.
